    Hello Everyone!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Agidni, Mar 3, 2008.

    Hey everyone, my Pen Name (the name I use when writing) is Agidni. I've been writing since Kindergarten and I'm quite familiar with some of my Language Arts teachers because of my love for literature. :D

    Anyways, I guess I should tell ya'll a little about myself. So... here goes!

    I was born in Hong Kong and lived there since I was five. My Mom is Cantonese and my Dad is American, but I'm more on the American side now. In Hong Kong, books are written differently, and you read from right to left, so if you ever take a look at some of my books from when I was 6 or 7, you'll see that you have to read that way. :p

    I guess I could say I'm a bit of a sports person. I love Hockey, although I never got the chance to play on a team because my Dad said that the sport was for boys. I am also only a Gold Belt in Tae Kwon Do, but I'll be going onto Orange Belt in March. I skateboard and In-Line Skate for a hobby and do horseriding (English style). And lastly, I am a Fencer.

    Fencing is my greatest passion, besides writing. It's a form of swordsmanship that is influenced by the English, French, and Italian. I love it. :)

    And so, that's a little of me. I'll make sure I stay active and keep posting my works when I finish!

    Hello Agidni, 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!

    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!
