    Nice to be here

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Cycle, Feb 3, 2012.

    Im Rob. I have a small guest house in Scotland.
    I have far too much time on my hands. I only have a basic level English qualification, so my writing skills are not magnificent. I tend to write nonsense.
    I prefer reading to writing.
    Nice to be here.
    Wish you were here.
    Lots of Love.

    Nice to have you here! Welcome to the Forums.

    By the way, lots of people--including myself--write nonsense, no matter what level of English "qualification" they have. We are all here for the same reason: to improve our writing skills. I hope the Forums help you out as much as they have helped me!

    I welcome you to the forums Rob. If you have too much time on your hands, you will find that there are plenty of discussions here to join and from what I read, your English seems good so don't worry about it.

    What genres do you like to read?

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Rob!

    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.
