    Hello everyone!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by NothingMuch, Aug 8, 2008.

    Hi! I'm new here (I know it's such a shock ;) ) I was never really big on writing. I always saw it as more of a school chore than a hobby. But the last year has been pretty rough for a lot of different reasons and lately writing - both my own and that of others - has become a nice retreat from everything. I look forward to reading other people's work as well as sharing my own and growing as a writer :)

    Hello Nothing Much, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Maybe exploring your writing will make you feel more like Someone Unique.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile to see what other people have done to improve their writing, and see if some of it applies to your writing as well. That is part of why we require members to review other members' work before posting their own for review. On the other hand, there are no restrictions, other than content and copyright rules, on showcasing your work in your member blog.

    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!

    Greetings.:)
    We've certainly got plenty to offer as a forum goes with competitions and various other aspects.

    Also feel free to offer a short story for the forum anthology The Captains Table

    On that note Welcome to the forums.
