    Hello Everybody

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Mousie, May 16, 2008.

    Um, hello there. My name is Mousie. I like to write, even though I'm really bad at it. I'm only 15 years old, so forgive me for being kind of stupid. I'm a very boring person, but maybe I can make some friends here? I sure do hope so.

    I usually write modern-day fantasy - with monsters, usually. Gargoyles are my favorite, but I've got a nerdy vampire character that I like to write about once and a while. I'm not a big fan of the whole "good-vs-evil" thing, so there's never really a "villan" in any of my stories. And I've noticed that all my stories involve either a shy, timid girl or a happy-go-lucky, partially-retarded girl who doesn't talk. I wonder why...

    Erm, sorry, I hope I didn't bore any of you! I'll stop babbling now. I hope we can all be friends :)

    Hello Mousie, 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. 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 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 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). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Ha ha, thank you! :D I'm glad I found this site - I've been looking for a writing forum since I outgrew Neopets (and by outgrew, I mean was scared away by all those nasty little 10-year-olds. They're brutal!)
