    Hello

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Sylvester, Oct 31, 2008.

    I've had ideas brewing for years and am hoping to find something to help me get them into writing and on the big or small screen.

    My oldest concept centers around four twelve year old super heroes in Phoenix Arizona. Instead of pitting them again a Doctor Doom or alien conquers, the main foe is much more realistic who will see the kids of Phoenix Force as the prize. A wealthy, but childless heiress who concoct an elaborate plan to kidnap and brainwash the boy and three girls to accept her as their new mother.

    I'm not ready to really post anything as of yet. Right now I'm going to look around and do a few more reviews and comment on some columns.

    Hello Sylvester, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here anyway. 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.

    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!
