    hello!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by fadedstar27, Feb 20, 2010.

    Hi. I'm 25 and currently seeking publication for a few of my works. However, I like to write and need constant feedback on my work. I'm not really sure what to write here but I just wanted to say hello

    *grins* Glad to know I'm loved!

    Oh! I'll go hunting with you! So long as you provide the food afterwards... energy and all of the living. :)

    If you don't like zombies... how do you feel about vampires?

    Thats it. You're going to be my bride.

    I have mixed feelings about vampires. Some are cute and cuddly. While others are smart, quick, and strong zombies. So i don't know what button to push.

    :p well you'd have to ask me to be your bride first. unless of course you take the ever enchanting path of kidnapping me and forcing me first.

    agreed. over grown zombies with teeth, not so much fun. but the cute, cuddly have their way with you kind, two thumbs up!

    Hello Star, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Before you can get critique, you must first give constructive critique. This is not just a quid pro quo, it is because improving your critiquing skills is the primary focus of the Review Room workshop. Improving your critiquing skills will improve your ability to find and fix weaknesses in your own writing.

    But posting your own writing for people to comment on should not be among the very first things you do here anyway. 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!

    I think it's because I find the post apocalypse attractive.
