    Hello everyone!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Sir Ender, Dec 30, 2007.

    How is everybody on this fine, cold, night? I'm Caleb and I've been writing for a few years now, but always looking to improve.

    One of my favorite authors is William Faulkner. my english teacher made me read a book by him (As I Lay Dying) and even though it took me a few reads to understand it, I started reading his other works and he's definitely made my top ten writers list.

    Feel free to drop by and say hello, I'll be around here while trying to find my way around the site!

    Sorry about that. It is just hard to do a personalised welcome as I spend most of my time reviewing. I come to these and just never really know what to say.

    and you are most welcome by the way. Oh you should check out the reviewing forum as well. Has some great issues on reviewing. You may even be able to add your own thoughts and opinions in there.

    I babble too much :p have fun

    Hiya, Ender (Gah, you remind me of one of my favorite books right off the bat... :p)

    I'd like to say something constructive that isn't in everybody's generic intro posts, but I can't come up with anything. So I'll give you my best advice: come out of that shell. I joined a few months ago, but really didn't do anything until just recently. It's more fun if you get out there and post your writing, or review other peoples. And we'll all be glad to see you around. Everybody's friendly.

    So, yeah, I'm here.

    Already been there! I'm just working on finishing up my first chapter before making a thread there.
    And I'm just teasing about the welcome post. I used to be a moderator on a site and I know how hard it can be to keep up with all the work that needs to be done.

    Hey Zetta!

    As I Lay Dying = Amazing.

    My mother is so totally fish too.

    I can see already that people are friendly here, much different than the forum behavior I'm used to.

    Hello Caleb, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Personally, I never surrender.

    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 Cogito, thanks for the welcome.
    You might surrender, sooner or later everyone does.

    Hey ILTBY, thanks for the welcome.

    I posted the first chapter to my novel in the Review room a few hours ago, you could take a look at that if you were interested.

    What does ILTBY stand for anyway?

    Welcome! :)

    You have one of the more popular welcoming threads it would seem.

    I was just reading over something in the Novels section that you commented on and I thought, 'Wow, where'd this guy come from? He seems pretty cool.' It was weird but anyway, enjoy your time here as they all say.

    Aha, thanks for the welcome Bluemouth.

    It's pretty cool 'round here. I was looking for a writing forum site where I'd get varied opinions and not just the same "oooh, your MC's hot!" comments from my friends who read my stuff. Or the "why do you write fantasy?" comments.

    Welcome to the site, Caleb. Like your name. Though I've never heard of the writer, I'll safely assume he's got a good repute otherwise. Anyhow, if you have any trouble around here feel free to PM me or anyone you like.
