    Hello

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Calabash, May 29, 2008.

    I want to introduce myself, I have thought about writing for awhile but have never done it. I am active with the local community theatre in my town (Etowah, TN) and have acted in some of the plays we have put on. I love to watch plays and wonder if I could write a play someday.

    I want to learn more about writing and how better to express myself with the pen. I can express myself verbally since I am a mental health counselor but writing seems to me a whole different ball game.

    Hello Calabash, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    For some reason, I'm reminded of the late great Jimmy Durante...

    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 Calabash!
    I visit a mental health counsellor, and I think he'd agree that writing is a different ball game. :) But if you're interested enough in learning to express yourself through writing, you'll learn and love it.
