    Between Dreaming and Reality.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lirael, Sep 6, 2007.

    Hello, everyone. :)

    I joined this forum in the hope of learning some new skills. I've always been interested in writing, and have been told I'm good, though I'm not too certain myself. =]

    Since I'm going to apply for English and Creative Writing at Uni, I thought it would be quite useful to join these forums, and I can get to know some great people in the process (hopefully ;]).

    Anyway, my other basic interests include reading, of course, gaming (especially Final Fantasy or Zelda), manga and anime, Photoshop, and making music videos from Final Fantasy clips. If you wanna know anything else, just ask. :-D

    Oh, and the title of this thread... Well, I'm awfully tired. I was up late the other night, thinking about something upsetting that happened around 7pm that day. >_< So, I'm on the verge of falling asleep. Yet I'm stuck in my dad's office, surrounded by the sounds of the dominant cars outside. :rolleyes:

    Welcome to the Writing forums, Lirael. Cool name :cool:. Anyways, good luck with your career. I hope you will find what you need here.
    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 postign your own. This is ensure the pieces are evaluated to the most. Other than this, we have Writing Cotnests, 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 enoguh 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!

    Hello Lirael, 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!
