    I finally found it!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Claus Angeloh, Jul 13, 2012.

    I suppose this is the place I was looking for; to criticize and -to critique and to be critiqued is what I meant. After reading all the rules and all the workshop regulations, my mind is just spinning around right now. I don't believe I am in the best state to introduce myself properly, but I can try, I suppose...


    So, I am Claus Angeloh. Yep, that is my real name. Nope, that is not my real last name. Yes, some people call me Santa and I'm fine with that. I am 23 years old. I have been titled with an unnecessary -as I see it- J.D. and work part-time as a lawyer and part-time as a video editor -don't ask. I am an aspiring longing to be inspiring author.

    ...And I sometimes play the piano.

    Only 23 and already find the J.D. unnecessary? :-(
    It's a great degree, just unfortunately very expensive. Law school is great -- its the practice of law that can be a real grind. But it is a great mine for stories.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Claus!

    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.
