    *steps up to microphone* Is this thing on?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by cuddles, Jul 13, 2012.

    *tap tap* Everyone cringes at the reverb.

    If I don't introduce myself awkwardly it wouldn't be a true representation of self. I'm a bit brash and bumble-y, but my quirky charm might make you smile or laugh once in a while. While I've written a few things for a local trade magazine and company newsletters I've mostly been a closet writer my entire life. I realized not long ago that I gripe about how annoyed I get with my day job and that while I might be good at it, I'm always looking for something more... so instead of doing nothing yet again, I'm attempting to take some action. I've started a blog, I've joined this place, and I'm eager to improve, learn, and maybe even get something published along the way.

    So hi, and sorry about the mess in the kitchen. I promise I'll clean it up tomorrow.

    The mike is on, cuddles, but you haven't said anything cringeworthy yet! Welcome and enjoy yourself!

    Quirk is one of the reasons the world smiles...occasionally. Welcome to the forums.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, cuddles!

    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.
