    At age 20, success is...having sex.
    At age 35, success is...having money.
    At age 50, success is...having money.
    At age 60, success is...having sex.
    At age 70, success is...having a driver's license.
    At age 75, success is...having friends.

    Hello alsosoft, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    At age 1oo, methinks success is waking up to a brand new day. But any day is a good one to write.

    Posting your own work 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.

    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!

    Cute introduction. My view of success is a bit different from yours. "At age 30....success is surviving motherhood with some sanity still intact." :D (Good thing I have the WF for a bit of grownup interaction. Interpreting speech impediments all day gets tiring.) :rolleyes:
    I enjoyed reading your musings! Thanks for sharing. I hope you find everything you're looking for in the WF. Welcome. :)
