    Hello in there...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Necromortis, Jul 22, 2008.

    Err...hi?

    Heh, I'm new here. Thought maybe I'd post up an introduction thread, although now that I've started, I realize I don't have much to say about myself.

    My name's Christian. I try to write but generally fail miserably (like now - I should be writing right now. I've been telling myself to just sit down and write for the past two hours, but I did research and the like instead). I generally prefer writing and reading fantasy, but I'm pretty open to anything.

    I've got a few other interests but this is a writing forum, so there'll be no talk about them.

    I guess that's it. Hi everyone, hope I'll be sticking around.

    ~Christian

    Welcome, Christian. :)
    Feel free to PM me if ever you need anything. I'm here pretty much 15 hours each day (that's right, I have no life) so I'm usually available!
    Enjoy your stay, and have a great time.

    Hello!! There are people in here! :D

    Welcome to the WF! I'm new too (look at us crazy people picking up the lingo like we've been doing this for an age)

    Thought I'd say hi and welcome another fantasy fan to the fray!
    Have a great time!:p

    Hello Christian, 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!
