    New member and new writer.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ChristianM5, Jan 2, 2012.

    Let me start off by saying Hello everyone! My name is Christian, and I am 19 years old. I've lived my life believing that I have some sort of creative spark inside of me. I've tried to pick up a pencil and draw the images in my head. I've tried to work with photoshop to let some of my creative energy out. None of this seemed to have worked for me, as this was not my niche. Recently I have been having flashbacks on my life as a much younger child. I have remembered that around my elementary school days, when we had story writing activities I was always the one the kids would be excited to hear about. This is no real way to determine if I am a good writer. Although I was a child telling stories to other children, I believe my mind is trying to tell me something about myself by revealing such flashbacks. I hope to find out if this is my true calling for creativity.

    Thanks for your time,

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Christian!

    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 and Cogito) 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.
