    Hi; my name is Lez.

    I write mostly poetry and I'm compiling poems for a book, but I just recently started work on a novel [or novella..]. It is told through God's words and a girl named Vinnie's diary notes/suicide notes about her life and impending death.

    I've never joined a forum before but I felt it was time to talk to others about writing, see what's going on, and just spread the love of writing :D

    Thanks for your time.

    I'd love to take a look at some of your work, should you want to post it.

    It's great to have you here! Take the time to read through pieces you find similar (possibly) to your own and add your thoughts to these ahead of posting your work, so as to ensure you are elligible to post and receive the feedback you're looking for.

    We have many talented and knowledgable members who like I can't wait to see you in the threads.

    Hello Lez, 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!
