    Couldn't think of anything cool to say, so... Hello!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Owen, Nov 30, 2007.

    Hello friendly friendly forum members...

    *oh, please don't let them turn out to be evil*

    My real name is Zebediah the Ogre Killer from Flicktockchair, but that tends to be a bit of a mouthful so I'll go by the name of 'Owen' when I'm here.

    I'm 31, married with 2 kids and have been writing since I was about six (well, according to my Mum, anyway, and I've no reason to suspect her of lying... although there was that revelation last year that all the time I thought I was eating spinach when I was growing up it was actually cabbage), and I've had a couple of stories published in Twisted Tongue magazine. I've been working on the traditional 'unfinished novel' for the last few years, which shows no sign of ending soon, as well as the short stories that leak into my brain from wherever it is they come from.

    Um... I've also got a cold, which is why I can't sleep and have decided to join the forum at 2 in the morning. I get up for a cuppa and find myself here! It must have been meant to be...

    Aaaand... I've been known to be a touch sarcastic. Which can be annoying.

    Hello.

    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!

    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!

    Cogito actually used a shred of creative energy in his welcome! Wow!

    Welcome Owen, or Zebediah, whatever I should call you. Most of us are indeed rather pleasant, helpful creatures.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    I promise to come back and annoy you all with posts shortly, but I've just arrive home from work with a fever (and yet still managed to pop in here when I should be in bed with a hot toddy and my new purchase from Pendragon Press).

    I shall return!

    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

    Friendly we tend to be.....evil is what we truely are though! Especially Cogito, Banzai, Raven, Kit063 and ILTBY!!! Beware of them! :p (Raven and Cogito force members to steal cookies for them. Kit603 and Banzai steal them for each other, ILTBY she just got caught up with the wrong crowd :D:D)


    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 :)

    For an adult, you're pretty enthralled. Or am I just jealous of adults living high? Yeah, whatever. Nevertheless enjoy yourself over here, if you need any help we're at your service provided you bring along some money. :eek: I guess LpSpider will kill me for that. So howdy anyway!
