    Como estas?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Emilyx1992, Oct 31, 2008.

    I'm learning Spanish at the moment so I'm putting it to some small use. Anyhow, I've heard about the site long ago, but was too lazy to join until now.

    My name on here is Emily. No further questioning. :-D Just wanted to drop a quick hey and exit for my bedtime.

    Hola. Buenas noche.

    Hola Emily, Recepción a los foros de la escritura.

    Vaya a la Taberna Española, cuando tienes el tiempo.

    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.

    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!

    I wish I knew some Spanish so I could contribute to this thread =P I'd definitely learn it if it was useful where I live, though.
    Welcome anyway, I'm new here too and am finding this to be a nice community so far.
