    G'day mates

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by FrydRice, Nov 21, 2008.

    G'day!
    Hi everybody. I recently joined this forum due to immense boredom. I was searching around the fast spacial plain known as the "internet" when I decided to look for a writing forum. Well I found this one and it looked very active so I decided to join. I'm just looking for some friends who like to write and will encourage/critisize me where needed, some interesting challenges (because I get writers block all the time)

    Anyways, I am going to keep this short and elaborate on it later because my contacts are drying out and I need to get some sleep. 6 hours of sleep in the past 2 days does not help at all.:p

    But I'm a pretty fun guy. I'm 17, White, I live in Washington in the United States of America, and have a very Unique look on life. (I will elaborate later as I said before lol)

    so cheers mate, hope to meet some chill people very soon. :)

    Hello and let me be the first to welcome you to the forums. I hope you find whatever it is you are looking for here. If you ever need a review on anything you write please feel free to PM me for it and I will get right to work on that.

    As for interesting challenges, you might want to stop by the RPG section of the forums. I find that these role-plays are good cures for writer's block and a great writing workout to keep your skills sharp.

    Hope you enjoy yourself.

    Hello Fryd Rice, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile 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!
