    Doug J - First Timer - Middle Aged

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Doug J, Mar 5, 2008.

    Never joined or did this kind of thing before. But relocating to new city - and find myself w. some extra time while away from my family during the week. And I like to write and read new writers.

    In the business world - Human Resources - but I think I have a knack for writing and communication. Plan to exercise it in the forum.

    Live in Wisconsin - cold as heck these days - and plenty of snow.

    Looking forward to some good reads - and writes.

    How cold is it in Wisconsin? It's finally warming up in Idaho.

    Well - today it was just in the teens (farenheit (sp?) this morning. And the rest of this week I don't think it will get above 22 degrees. Brrrr!

    Hello Doug, 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. 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 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.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    It's been hovering in the high thirties here. I can't wait for summer after this last winter.
