Hello,and I hope i enjoy my stay :)
« on: December 25, 2011, 08:09:27 AM »
Hello all,

My name is Alex, i'm an Australian student and i am officially grade 12 as of next year. I don't usually join many forums as i will be committing to my studies next year as it crucial that i get a high op (expecting Op 2 / OP 3). The reason why i joined was purely because i'm not really great with my writing though i'm willing to learn. I'm hoping that you guys will be able to support me when i ask grammar-related questions, or anything related to english.   

I have been studying alot in my holidays (more than gaming and less than sleeping), only got a few weeks left till school, so that's about it.

Welcome to My Writers Circle, Alex,

If you want to improve your writing, you've come to the right place. You'll find we have quite a few members (and even a moderator) from Oz. Feel free to poke around and make some new friends.

In your travels, don't forget to check out our forum etiquette here:
http://www.mywriterscircle.com/index.php?topic=7415.0

Also, take a look at the stickies at the top of each board. They will give you an idea of what gets posted where.

You will notice that we have two boards for posting your work. The first is the Review board. This is where you would post any segment of work you need specific help with. Read the critiquing guidelines and don't be bashful about offering any of your own advice you think may be helpful. This will give you an idea of what to expect when you post your own work.

The other board for posting is The Gallery. This is primarily for finished pieces you would like to share with other members. Give that a look as well. Poetry gets its own section.

Moderators are the guys and girls with the blue stars. We'll be happy to answer any questions you have, and so will any of our members. Just ask. Enjoy.
I have a motto: when in doubt, go for the cheap laugh.

Hello and welcome Alex. We have a lot of different boards, each with its own purpose. Look around, read some pieces and comment when you feel the urge.

We also have the results of a flash fiction challenge up and ready for voting. Your votes would be welcome on which three you like the best.

Here's a like to the reading and voting thread:

Hi Alex,

I've only been around a day or two myself, but I can already tell you've come to the right place to get the support and advice you're hoping to find.  I can already say with confidence that this is one of the best writer's forums I've found in a long time.

You'll learn a lot just reading other posts on the site, I'm still reading.

Welcome to myWritersCircle.
I think you will find everyone helpful.

PS: I watched a really funny Australian TV show via Hulu a few weeks ago.
It was called, "The Librarians."

Wonderful satire!

Have you seen it?
Is it still running?

Take care,

Hi Alex!

Welcome~ I am new as of yesterday but I found a link that I hope will help both of us :) I will paste it for you. I am not sure now what heading I found it under, I think it was author references or something like that. I hope you get use of it~   http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/


Happy New Year~

Cheers~

Umm, I'm not sure who you are talking to...I assume it's Alex, since it's his post, duh!

Myself, I'm too new to add to my profile, so soon, hopefully I can.

Take care,
