    Hello---I'd love to meet you!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by chaplainandrews, Jan 18, 2008.

    HI! I'm chaplainandrews. I write two blogs. I will refer to these from time to time, but my main focus here is working on my writing in general. I have been journaling since the 8th grade and continue to do so. Being a preacher, when I am preaching regularly, I write roughly a twelve page paper each time I preach, if it's everyweek--then well, I get busy. I've got a wide array of experience, interest, and learning capacity. So HI, I'd love to meet you!

    Preacher eh? You guys are my enemy every sunday morning at 11:00... Just Kidding. Preachers are probably some of the best public speakers I've ever seen.

    Hello and Welcome. We have a special offer today where each new memebr recieves a free pack of gummi bears and a smashing hat.

    That's ok, I usually preach at 9:30:)

    Thanks for the gummy bears! That's all I need to show up in my US Army mailbox! The X-ray machine may have a little issue with it--but it would be fun!

    I'm sure you'll have fun. Because if you don't, I'll make you have fun. :eek: Anyway, welcome abroad.

    Here's a basic welcome from all of us. It should be obvious, but in case it isn't, let me explain. The Writing Problems Area is exclusively where opinions on different ways to write, blockages in writing styles and similar problems can be discussed. In the Review Room, you can get critical appreciation and/or analysis of your written material. Behold, you must first review two pieces of writing before posting your own. This is ensure the pieces are evaluated to the most. Other than this, we have Writing Contests, weekly and monthly, where you can submit your writing. We also have Word games, Book Discussion and so on, classified under Community interaction. It may interest you if you're just hanging around.

    adamant has been kind enough to put many of the things I have mentioned or missed out on in one comprehensive place. If you want to check it out, see the Newbie Packets:
    Noobie Packets! - Writing Forums

    Enjoy it here, and don't feel shy to ask for help. We are all here to teach and learn in a mutual environment. And we hope you can do the same.

    Regards and Best Wishes!

    Thank you for asking:) one is chaplainandrews.com where I do more of my professional stuff. And the other is comicbookday.com which is where the fun is. I spent more time at the comic book site, because that is where most of my blogging occurs. However, I am just starting to get more on my chaplain site--I'm trying to be more consistent with both.

    Hello Chaplain, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    That's an interesting pair of foci, religion and comic books.

    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!
