    I am NEW, OKAY?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by SparkIdeaRevelation, Jun 27, 2012.

    So here is my introduction!

    I'm not really a writer, per se. I mean, I am writing a novel, though ridiculously slow. I guess I'm a writing "cadet"? Well, whatever, you get the point. I'm not a writer but a writer who is writing my first novel. How's that for sense?

    The idea for my novel had been brooding in my mind for a while and I really never thought I could actually write it. The beginning was the hardest part, but once it got started it became much easier. Then the wedding planning came and I didn't have time to write (making excuses). My wife and I were finally married in May. I thought I would have more time as soon as we got back from the honeymoon, but I didn't (more excuses) and my progress has been nonexistent up to this point. Which leads me to my next sentence.

    Besides writing, I enjoy playing video games (which leads to me not writing, which makes me feel like I'm wasting an idea. Video games and I have a very love/hate relationship), drawing from time to time, and cooking very delicious food.

    I am pretty reluctant to put my own work into the "internetz", but I'll do my best to give incisive feedback to anyone that needs it. I'm going to continue writing my novel (YES I WILL!) and maybe, just maybe, I'll post an excerpt someday when you least expect it!

    See you in the threads!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, SparkIdeaRevelation!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirments. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.
