    Need to know

    Discussion in 'Science Fiction' started by Terry L Southern, Jun 6, 2020.

    I am new to this forum. even though i've written literally hundreds of pages of material, I've never let anyone see any of it. The time has come to see if I have what it takes to become a writer. Doesn't anyone ever include a chapter in one of these posts to get some creative feedback or see how it is received? I've never had writing lessons or taken classes on writing. Without someone reading some of my work, I'm stuck in an endless loop. While I love to write, and write quite a bit, it is all conjecture without knowing one way or the other.

    You can share a chapter in the Workshop, so long as you meet eh new member requirements.

    Good luck, and keep on a writing. :)

    Hi - I'm one of the forum moderators, and I want to welcome you to the forum.

    Cave Troll is right. We will be delighted to give you feedback on your writing, but only after you've fulfilled the requirements for posting it. They aren't too difficult. To start with, you need to have been a member for two full weeks AND made at least 20 posts around the forum, so we get a chance to know you a bit.

    In order to help you get oriented and get settled, here are a couple of links I strongly recommend that you read at the start, if you haven’t already. They will give you a good idea of how we operate here on the forum:

    New Member Quick Start

    Forum Rules

    You will notice in the New Member Quick Start that in order to post your work in the Workshop area—the only area of the forum where you are allowed to post your work and ask for feedback—you will also need to do at least two critiques for other people, in exchange for receiving feedback on one of your own pieces of work. (If you want to submit two pieces of work you'll need to do 4 critiques, etc.)

    This site is designed around the concept of members helping each other out by ‘paying it forward’—through our two-for-one critique system. So do two critiques, THEN you can post something of your own. This advance 2:1 ratio lasts as long as your membership here—although it is your own responsibility to keep track of your own ratio. The software doesn't keep track of it for you, beyond your first two critiques, so we need you to be responsible for your critique count.

    In order to help you get started doing critiques, here is a link to a good article written by one of our former moderators: https://www.writingforums.org/threads/constructive-critiques.20627/

    I hope you have fun getting to know us and let us get to know you, via the posts you make. Please feel free to explore the forum. There is a lot under the hood. This site map might help you find your way around more quickly than the menu bars do, so feel free to use it. https://www.writingforums.org/faq/

    If you encounter any difficulties, don’t hesitate to contact me or one of the other moderators, whose names appear in yellow at the bottom of the Community page. Just 'start a conversation' with us. We will be glad to help.

    Again, welcome!

    Cheers for now,

    Of course we do. We keep it in the Workshop, though, as Cave Troll and Jannert have mentioned.

    Palm Bay?

    <-- Melbourne Beach.
