    Greetings!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Endeavour, Oct 10, 2007.

    Hello everyone,

    I would just like to introduce myself to you guys. :)

    As a novel and books reader, I heavily indulge on horror fiction. I have also hankered to become a writer in the past but my previous writing skills have always let me down. This year though, I am seriously considering writing my first story, whether it'll turn out as a mere and silly short story or an ambitious novel (Endeavour grimaced at the latter event. In your dreams pal! And whilst you're at it, why not inform everybody you're a fool! Who else would tread into such professional, writing territory? A fool like you Endeavour, a silly... young... fool like you). :D

    I cannot help but remark the fact that this is by far one of the most sophisticated writing forums on the net. Fantastic enviromnent! Wonderful job guys.

    Thanks for the praise Endeavour but flattery won't get you anywhere! It's a great site as you point out because we have great, knowledgeable members that span all genres as I'm sure you've seen. Good luck with your writing and whilst it may be ambitious it isn't unattainable. See you around the site.

    Hello Endeavor, 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 than dusty skeletons 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!

    It's a little late to welcome you here since I already started exchanging posts with you on your thread on consciousness :D Anyway, good to have you here. I love horror fiction and the more I get to read it, the happier I get. So hope to see many stories from you. Good luck
