    Hello, Hola, Konban Wa and All That

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

    Hello everyone. My name's Tiffany. I also like the name Sato Ayako (I'm a Japanese junkie). You can call me whatever one you like best. I live in the southwest in the US of A.

    I've been writing for awhile. Not sure how good I am at it, but figured it couldn't hurt to join a forum with like-minded people.

    Thanks everyone! I've already found a home here on WritingForums. I do love those review forums.

    Hello Tiffany, 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!

    Hello Cogito thank you for mentioning this to me. When I said I found a home on the review board, I meant that I found what I like best about the forums. When it comes to posting works to be viewed, I try to critique ten or eleven pieces first. This lets other members of the forums know I'm willing to contribute and will probably stick around for at least a little while.

    Again, thanks for the heads up!
