    A rowdy howdy for a local yokel. Cletus, that is

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by chrislemke, Aug 23, 2007.

    I have no idea what possessed me to put that topic title up there, but oh well.

    I have been around here for a couple of weeks, but I never really formally introduced myself.

    My name is Chris.

    My background is mostly in short stories and theatre. However, I have recently taken the leap to comic books of which I am working on a few. I hope to get to meet some fun, interesting, and less odd people than myself.

    And now that I have made everyone feel uncomfortable...

    HI!

    Erm...an interesting introduction...

    Welcome to the forums anyway, Chris. I hope you enjoy hanging around here, and that we can help you with whatever aspects of your writing you feel you need help with. If you should have any questions or problems, please feel free to ask, as I'm always happy to offer a hand.

    Hello Chris, 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!
