    Hello

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Curvatures, Jul 26, 2008.

    Hello everyone -
    I found this writing forum somehow while getting lost in the internet one night and decided to join. I live in California, in the bay area. I have lived here my whole life. I am 22 years old and I attend college in the hopes of becoming a registered nurse. I enjoy reviewing poems and helping others to see their writing through the eyes of a reader. I also dabble a little in writing myself, although much of my work is at a beginner's level. I have been writing since I was a teenager and have always found that writing was my escape. The images in my head that I could not paint or draw could be brought to life in another form. See you all on the forum.

    Hello Curvature, 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!

    Hi Curvatures, Glad to have you with us. There's plenty to read and review and I'm sure it will help your own writing. Everyone is very helpful and friendly.
    Hope to see you around.
