    Good evening!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ApAXik, Oct 25, 2007.

    Just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Andrew and I'm new to the Writing Forums, although not nearly new to writing! I've been searching for a quality creative writing forum community, and already I feel at home. Not sure what else to say, so I'm sure this will suffice for now! :p

    Hello Andrew, 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!

    Hello and welcome to the forum. I hope that your time here with all of us is enjoyable and that you find the information around the place to be most helpful with your writing endeavors.
    I hope that you take the time to take a look and join in on the weekly poetry and/or short story contests. They can be quite enjoyable.
    Well if you would ever like a review simply send me a PM and I will try and give a helpful review of your work.
    WF has become home to many wonderful writers and their amazing work and has now become a very close community and I do hope that you decide to stick around and be a part of our growing community for years to come.
    See you around the boards.
    Torana
