    Hello All. Glad to meet you!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ForsytheTragedy, Aug 25, 2007.

    Hi everyone. My name's Mike (or Michael, whichever you prefer). I am not a professional writer by any means, but I very much aspire to become one. Unfortunately, I'm a realist and have based my schooling on that personality trait -- I'm studying Networking. That's not going to stop me from pursuing my passion on the side, however.

    Anyway, I'm glad to meet all of you, and I hope that I get the honest feedback that I'm looking for here. Thanks!

    Hello Mike, 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!
