    This isn't my office!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by GusCrottyWriter, Feb 24, 2012.

    Hello everyone,

    Just a little post to introduce myself . I write experimental flash fiction and short form contemporary pieces mostly in the first person, and quite often from a female perspective. A lot of my stories are macabre and involve death, lost or unrequited love, or a combination of the two. I have a huge number of influences and admire a great variety of authors. Particular favourites include Cormac McCarthy, John Irving, Ian McEwan, David Mitchell, Haruki Murakami and Arundhati Roy.

    If you would like to check out any of my writing you can type my name into google, or find it on this link http://guscrotty.blogspot.com/

    I've spent quite a while trying to find other purely creative writing blogs with difficulty, so if anyone would like to share theirs with me I'll definitely take a look, and provide any support or help I can.

    Looking forward to getting involved in this community,

    All the best,

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Gus!

    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.
