    Hola
    Hello
    (Okay I'm out of languages)

    I'm a new member to this website, I write a lot of fantasy/fiction/adventure and tend to deal with mythical creatures and the races of legend. I love reading the same genre, and sometimes even poetry(depending on the material). My favorite author of all time has to be Homer or William Shakespeare. Other than that, I'm pretty much your normal*cough cough* writer.

    Bonjure, SilverWolf! (Wait... I'm not French.) ;] Is there any nickname you prefer to go by? Any hobbies or interests? Am I allowed to call you a Yankee? Haha, I'm just kidding. =) Welcome to the Writing Forums -- enjoy your path to literary enlightenment, and feel free to call me Hedge or Greg.

    Hope to see your work in the future, and see you around the Forums.

    Welcome to the Forums.

    Guten Tag SilverWolf, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time 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 constructive critique as a vital 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). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. 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!

    Actually, a lot of people call me Silver or Wolf, it all depends on the mood I'm in. As for my hobbies. My number one hobby is listening to music, I do more of that than I do anything else. After that comes reading, another thing I do a lot of. Then writing and drawing/painting.
    The yankee part is interesting, but I actually don't hear a lot of it. Unless I move back to Florida, but then it's just going to give me the satisfaction of a good brawl. Yeah, I'll willingly admit it. I'm a punk/tomboy/country girl.
