    *Cue rather dramatic music*

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Ben_Jones, Feb 21, 2009.

    TA DA Hello everyone. I did a year and a half of English Lang/Lit at A Level, got touted as being "Good" and then decided to work in factories for a bit. Now, thankfully, im much better off and unemployed, so I thought while dazing at the internet I might as well keep the noggin pumping. Also I knocked this together-

    On Follies and the methodical Organising of people.


    If,
    If.
    If the one-handed tool can lever,
    Nay, decieve one user to two-handed fevour,
    It follows in justice, one hand in the bush,
    One step to take all tools to beat her.

    One year---one hundred, all take their toil
    'Pon one man and his household, one
    Man and a fetid, raven desire
    Purely a human desire
    Design One God, Mans Dog, One Man
    Peering upon, standing upon all others shoulders.

    Lever away; Mans hand from the tool
    An apple a day, a sense for the fool
    Five billion freedoms. Docked in Gods court
    Adjourn not, the Woman, shes free when, She's caught.



    If,
    If; if.
    God is divine, and the language of Gospel gospel sparks from Within:-
    Then the Man and his Bible, and his Dog, sin the Origional Sin.


    Hows that for starters?

    Hello Ben, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time 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!
