    Bonjour

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Cloaked-Raven, Dec 15, 2007.

    Hi all. I'm not french as the title to my post may have suggested, but i wish i were. I love france and hope to travel there. It is definately in my top three goals in life. The first is to publish at least one novel, the second is france, and the third i keep open for emergencies. At any rate, I hope that this site will be better than previous ones i've tried, and i hope to see all who happen to read this out in the forums. 'Till then.....

    Bonjour, ça va?

    France is a nice place. I haven't been though. :p

    This site is definitely worth sticking around for - the members are great and the topics are engaging. And if you're after reviews of your work then we have a special system in place that'll have you teaching yourself, even when you don't know it, while also receiving excellent critique.

    Enjoy your time here. :D

    Bonjour Cloaked Raven, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Hopefully you can find your way closer to your first goal through dedication and some encouragement and insight from the members of this site.

    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 Writing Workshops, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners. Remember to check out our FAQ as well!

    As for the Writing Workshops, 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 Writing Workshops on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just bulletin boards for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Welcome to the site, Cloaked-Raven. I hope you find what you are looking for at this forum, it certainly did it for me. And I would also love to travel to France and spend a while living there, I have my fingers crossed. :p

    If you ever need any help, want a review or just want to chat then send us a PM and I'll be happy to help. :)

    Welcome to one of the fastest growing writers forums

    Dear Writer,

    Welcome to one of the fastest growing writers forums on the web. I’m sure if you hang around long enough you’ll begin to make new friends and enjoy becoming a participating member of the writersforum.org. I am sure each new member will bring something new and valuable to the forum as well as find it an interesting and wonderful place to explore and learn more about the wonderful world of writing.

    I have been away for awhile myself, and unfortunately have not been able to keep up with greeting the large influx of new members personally. Please forgive, but except my sincerest and belated welcome to the forum.

    Cordially yours,

    Trailer Trash

    I would just like to welcome you to the insanities of WF.org. A place where you can unleash both the writer and the inner child inside that is waiting patiently to escape. lol

    I do hope that you have a most wonderful time here with all of us. There are a lot of things for you to get involved in and a heck of a lot of wonderful and helpful information on all aspects of writing lurking around the different forums within this board.

    So sit down and get comfy with a nice hot or cold drink and probably a few snacks as well and enjoy reading everything that we have all got to say and do feel free to join in wherever you feel that you can.

    Ok so now that I have rambled away to you I will let you go and enjoy your time here with all of us.

    See you around the boards.

    Torana
