    My name is Belinda, you can call me B for short.
    What is there about me, i talk alot.
    i love to write i hope that one day i will be a publish writer who sell alot of books. But that porbley won't happen, i loe music, i can play just about anything.
    Writing i would say that i am okay, im not the best, i think that i have some potential, but as for being great i really don't know.
    okay i sound pretty boreing.
    i'm in collage, im going for PTA. so i can make money, and i read all the time.

My school also perform it. but yeah that is about it. wait, since im rambling. you can just tlk to me and i promise i will tlk back and it won't be so corny.

    Hello Belinda, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should really 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.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
