    He stepped into the cold, dark hall with a ruffle of his hair. A wind from the east blew through the cracked and damage cathedral and swam through darkness to the nape of his neck; it wanted him to shiver. He raised his winter coats color and walked towards the altar where the old man sat writing names onto the scroll which rolled straight off the altar and onto the old, dirty, red-ruby-carpeted floor. A pair of golden spectacles were the richest color beyond the red floor and he could see that the ancient scrollmaster had stopped his work to gaze up.

    "Are you here to join?" came the raspy, yet strong, voice of the scrollmaster.


    "Very well."

    Hello there. Just a fellow writer who would love to read some work and upload some work to be utterly ravished by better writers in the hopes of getting better. I'm an avid reader; love all types of books, Horror and Crime are a big area for me but anything with a good story I'll take on too.

    I'm glad to be here.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Ziggy!

    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.
