    Hello from a newbie writer.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by LtTelra, Jun 22, 2008.

    Um....hi.

    I'm a bit new to writing, but I'm eager to learn the tricks of the trade! As a secondary school student, I'll be displaying a lot of the short stories I write here.

    And I like Star Trek.

    Live Long and Prosper.

    Welcome to the forum, glad to have you with us. There are a bunch of other writers who live on islands too, is this a growing trend?

    I don't know if it's a trend, but there are certantly a lot of islands on the Earth! And what really bugs me - The number of times we're omitted from a map of Great Britain. (The Channel Islands are in the English Channel.)

    Hello Tetra, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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!

    Hi - welcome!
    Enjoy your stay at WF! :)
    Feel free to PM me if you need anything at all.
    I feel the same way about GB, Wales is omitted from it too and we're actually one of the three countries of which it consists - LOL!
