    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Oliver Fitzgerald, Feb 7, 2013.

    Hello I am Oliver Fitzgerald. I am an aspiring writer who is new to this website here. I enjoy writing; I like putting my exotic ideas onto paper. There is not really a limit I set myself to write. I write songs: lyrics and music; I write short stories, of any genre; I write novels and novellas, again, of any genre; And I write large continuous series, and yet again, of any genre. I write to entertain, I don't hope to make money, or create a masterpiece of literature or even make myself a name in the literary world, I only hope that when someone reads my stories they will be satisfied. In many of my stories there is something to take away from the encompassing idea, something philosophical, sometimes. I also like the reader to use their own imagination so I leave somethings open for the reader to fill in with their own creativeness. I have never leave a story complete, I leave a hanger or an open idea for the reader to draw their own conclusions to. This is just how I am, I like mystery and creativeness.

    You will find that I am quite an eccentric person. I enjoy writing, (obviously) but I like to write music and I play a variety of instruments, my main instrument being the bass. I may post some song lyrics that I write. I wanted to find an online community in which I can share my works and hopefully get some constructive critique.

    Thank you for reading my introductory ramble. "Until the life juice weeps."

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Oliver!

    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 requirements. 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. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, 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.
