    Ahem! First, I'm not really good at...[mute](hallo? we've got a problem with the mic)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Ash, Jun 16, 2008.

    Alright, the mic has returned to its life. Let's start this thing all over.

    Ahem. First, I'm not really good at introducing myself. Everytime I go to a new forum and introduce myself, I feel I'm making a fool of myself. Fine. So let's move on to the second point. The second point? sorry, no second point here. You've asked the wrong person! Mwahahahaha!

    Okey, cut that.

    I'm 17 right now, a girl living in Taiwan working kind of hard preparing to enter the university. I'm not good at spelling, but am quite good at babbling. [laughs] I dream to be a fiction writer in the future. This should have been a secret but now I'm...dreaming out loud? anyway, I guess it won't hurt if I let you know. You're not goning to hate me because of that, will you?

    I've just found out that I'm quite talkative actually. Smack me if you think I'm too much a noise. Now back to the topic.

    It's glad to be here!

    Welcome, Ash. :) I have a friend from Taiwan. :) She's an excellent writer as well. Good luck with your writing. Nobody will hate you here for wanting to write fiction. :) It's kind of the whole idea. *laughs* So welcome. Have fun.

    Hello Ash, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile 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.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Hi there Ash! Welcome to WF!
    I love your name. It's very pretty. :)
    I've never been to Taiwan myself, but greetings from here in Wales!
    Anyhow, PM me if you need anything.

    What a fun introduction (I've had that problem before)!

    And I also feel like I'm making a fool of myself when I make introductions.

    I once knew someone from Taiwan, but he moved back.

    Anyway, hiya and good luck! :D
