    Hello!! Total newbie here!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lady Atrox, Dec 7, 2009.

    Hey,
    I'm Lady Atrox, 15 years old. I always have nice ideas to write, and have a few characters. Sadly I don't really use them, because I just cannot seem to find a plot.
    I also like to draw, and I also read a lot.
    I come from the Netherlands, so if you see any grammatical/other errors please point them out.
    If you have anything to ask, ask!

    Hiya Lady!

    Welcome! What do you draw? Kind of a contradictory question for a writing forum, but I'm interested.

    Hello Lady Atrox, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own writing for comment should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time 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.

    Also, be aware that posting a piece of writing on any public site, including this one, will greatly diminish your chances of selling it for publication. Removing the writing later does not alter that fact - once posted, it is irreversibly considered published. So do not post anything more than a small excerpt of any piece you are planning to submit for publication.

    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 constructive critique as a vital 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). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Thank you for the information Cogito :)
    Evil Flamingo: thanks. I don't know if I'm allowed to post my website here, so I'll tell.
    I like to draw fantasy, especially dragons, but also other mythical creatures(I don't draw humans yet, too difficult). I also have drawed a lot of animals, but I think I'm a bit past that. Also made four portraits or so, but only two turned out looking remotely good :p
