    Uhhm, hello there...(again)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by gerzon, Mar 17, 2013.

    My real name is Gerwin G. Guanzon, 19 years old, College student (accountancy)
    Actually, this is my 1st time being in a forum... and the truth is, this is my 3RD username here... my last two were instantly been banned
    (i have no idea what a spam thread is). Sorry about that.

    I really hope that you guys can help me, such as giving me some advice to my writings, either good or bad comment, i will surely appreciate it.

    And actually, I'm quite shy in showing my written unfinished novels and short stories to my college friends, and eventually i almost thought of quitting until the girl
    that i liked (since highschool) mercilessly took my notebook and lokced herself in my room (she's probably already reading it), and there I was surpirsed.

    No one has ever read my written novel from that notebook and the worse part is, she's the girl that i like...so of course i got nervous and felt embarassed,
    But what she said is something that lead me to continue this hobby into a serious partial career. (since my college degree isn't writing)

    several minutes later, she finally came out.

    "What a nice plot... I bet you like Dan Brown Novels, and mangas too..." she said (she didn't said it in english, but i know it's something like that)

    "Huh?" I said, feeling uneasy

    " Let me read your next chapter when it's finished, okay?"

    What she said was completely a fact,
    I'm like a kid who reads mangas in the internet.
    And ever since i borrowed a book authored by Dan Brown,
    I began to read all of his written novels.

    Well, that's all i could say to myself and about why I'm writing novels (two novels under construction) despite still being a college student.

    Pls, if there is something wrong with my post, i hope the moderator or the owner could give me a warning,
    I'm just a noob in the internet.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Gerwin!

    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.
