    Hello all...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by JymmiTee, Sep 2, 2007.

    Hi everyone, just a quick note to introduce myself. I'm new to the site and fairly new to fiction writing and am excited to have found a welcoming and diverse on-line community! The extent of my experience was a few elective creative writing courses in college. As an avid guitarist I've also written a fair number of songs and lyrics, the quality of which could best be described as "varied." :)

    I'm looking forward to getting to know people here and will try and round out my profile to show off a little more personality in the near future.

    Hello JymmiTee, 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!

    There is a lot of information around the various areas of the forum on critique and other writing related issues so do check them out if you are interested.
