    'ello.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Tari, Jan 13, 2008.

    -peers around curiously-

    Hmm. Well, I'm not much for introductions (shyness and all that, though you wouldn't think it'd kick in online...), but I figured I would try. :)

    I'm currently a college student who dabbles in writing during his free time. It's fun, and a great way to pass time. It's been a while since I've written anything good, though. Heh.


    On an unrelated note, why is it so hard to find good writing sites online? Maybe I'm just lousy at finding them, but they seem to elude me. Er, well, this one popped up at the top of Google, so maybe my luck's changed for the better?

    Anyhow, getting back to the point of this post... 'ello.

    (Took me a while to actually say it, huh?)

    Hello Tari, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    You found this site, and hopefully we will suffice. :)

    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!

    Cogito hit the nail on the head. Just be sure to check out all the site has to offer, and what I believe is the key rule, give and you shall receive. lol.

    I'll review, I promise! :D Hopefully I'll know what I'm talking about (for everyone's sake).

    I'll poke around, too. ^^

    Welcome abroad to this site, the only problem being that you've been around long enough to know me better... Anyhow, keep enjoying the site, and keep your phone lines open, you might lose a million dollars any day now.
