    Well here is a very warm welcome to you and I do hope that you enjoy your time here amongst the rest of us.
    It is lovely to have you here and I really do look forward to seeing you around the board. Just to let you know we have poetry and short story contests running in the weekly writing group so you should take the time to have a look and join in with them. They can be a lot of fun and rather challenging as well at times.
    Well I do hope that you have a wonderful time here with all of us and I hope that you stick around.

    Thank you kindly
    Torana

    Welcome to the Writing forums. Unlike others, you seem confident and well-rehearsed. Go girl, prove it to the lads the lassies are pretteh pretteh.

    Here's a basic welcome from all of us. It should be obvious, but incase it isn't, let me explain. The Writing Problems Area is exclusively where opinions on different ways to write, blockages in writing styles and similar problems can be discussed. In the Review Rom, you can get critical appreciation and/or analysis of your written material. Behold, you must first review two pieces of writing before posting your own. This is ensure the pieces are evaluated to the most. Other than this, we have Writing Contests, weekly and monthly, where you can submit your writing. We also have Word games, Book Discussion and so on, classified under Community interaction. It may interest you if you're just hanging around.

    adamant has been kind enough to put many of the things I have mentioned or missed out on in one comprehensive place. If you want to check it out, see the Newbie Packets:
    Noobie Packets! - Writing Forums

    Enjoy it here, and don't feel shy to ask for help. We are all here to teach and learn in a mutual environment. And we hope you can do the same.

    Regards and Best Wishes!

    Shannon you are most very welcome and with that I think you have just described myself :p don't worry though. After a while of being around here you will come out of your shell a bit. I certainly did :p

    Everyone here is really down to earth, friendly and really easy to get along with. If you ever have questions just ask away we are all more than happy to answer and help out where we can. :)

    Hello Shannon, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Review Room, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners.

    As for the Review Room, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize reviewing as a critical writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. The Review Room on this site, therefore, is a true workshop, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
