    Hello everybody!!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Pentip, Mar 26, 2008.

    Hi! Several of you have already met me, but some have not.
    I didn't realize that there was a newbie welcoming board, so when I found it, I thought I might as well introduce myself. I've already posted several times, both in the reviewing department and the request review department.
    I love writing, and have since I was about 9 years old. I don't do many small things, I like novels better, but I do dabble a little in poetry, and I have written a few short stories.
    I was on a writing board a few years ago that was called Sheroes, but the people there were more intent on having a social gathering rather than enjoying the quaint art of novel writing and poetry (both of which I think should be included in the fine arts). Needless to say, their critique was not helpful in the least.
    So far this forum has been much better! :)
    See you around.
    *Something I'd like to add, I found this forum by that great invension, Google.*

    No thank you. I prefer not to be pattled, if you will. I haven't been spanked in years, and even though it was my father, I was still unwilling. How much more willing do you think I'm going to be about being spanked by you?
    This is not the best of welcomes, but I can cope.

    Hello Pentip, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Sorry about lordofhats - he seems to have slipped his shackles again. A regular Houdini, that one!

    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!

    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!

    Hey, welcome to the forums. Don't worry about the crazies, they usually just mumble in the corners so you can just ignore them ;) We're not all that bad... honest. :D
