    What's going on?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ZarisRedmist, Dec 1, 2012.

    Hello Everyone!

    I am ZarisRedmist.

    I am an aspiring writer I am trying to write a novel right now.

    I am big into Vampires, Science Fiction, and Anime.

    A lot of my writing is dark though not without heart behind the words.

    I am currently enlisted in the Active Duty Air Force, and love every minute of it.

    I got into writing because of one of my English teachers in high school who always encouraged me to keep writing and strive to be the best writer that I can be. He also kept asking me to write more to share in my creative writing club so that everyone else could enjoy my writings as much as he did.

    The way I look at writing is like this... We are like painters we both create art. However, unlike painters that paint on a blank canvas for all of their viewers to see, we as writers have the entire mind of our reader as our canvas to create entire worlds for our readers to imagine, and unlike a painting readers will have the same plot but never the exact same world they imagine.

    Well I think I have said enough for now sorry for such a long post I hope everyone has a great day

    Hi ZarisRedmist,

    I was also inspired to keep writing by a good English teacher. That's why whenever I hear of English teachers who 'suck the joy' out of reading/writing it makes me feel very depressed. Maybe because of that, I aim to be teacher myself one day. (Something I never thought I'd say)

    Anyway, 'nuff rambles, welcome to the site!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, ZarisRedmist!

    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.

    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.
