    A wild Jiggy appeared!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Jiggy, Mar 14, 2009.

    Hello, hello. You may call me Jiggy.

    I am a young man who enjoys a good work of fiction. I came here because I love movies, books, video games, and anything else that can tell a good story.

    I started out writing fan fiction, but I also have original settings that I use when writing. Nowadays, I always have around 1.21 gigathoughts in my head ready to build a new story or create a new character.

    My favorite genre is definitely comedy, with science fiction and action not too far behind.

    I'm looking forward to participating on this forum.

    Hola, bonjour, aloha, hello, ellohay, however you want to say it. Welcome to the forums! :cool:

    Yeah, make sure to review before posting your own work. It makes others more likely to review your work *hint hint nudge nudge*

    Hello Jiggy, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time to see what other people have done to improve their writing, and see if some of it applies to your writing as well. That is part of why we require members to review other members' work before posting their own for review. On the other hand, there are no restrictions, other than content and copyright rules, on showcasing your work in your member blog.

    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. Remember to check out our FAQ as well, and be sure to read through the forum rules, too, to avoid any misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Respect for one another is our principal mandate.

    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 forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Review Room forum). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Thank you. I agree, I want to see what other people are writing. I don't think I'm ready to post my stuff up here anyway.
