    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by spoiled1831, Jun 5, 2008.

    hi, my name is Erika. My brother is on this site and sent me a invention to join so here I am. Honestly I have never tried my hand at writing, so I am not sure whether I am any good at it, but hey maybe sometime I will have a go at it. Well a little about me, I am 23, a single mom of 2 and I am currently attending kaplan University to recieve my B.S in Paralegal studies, and than i hope to attend law school. Well to all those writing, good luck and keep up the good work.

    Hello Erika, 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!

    Wow, that's quite a load. Honestly, I'm not sure how you could find the time to write, lol, but give it a shot when you can.
