    Hey Everyone

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by JasonR66, Jun 13, 2007.

    Hey there, I'm Jason and new to the boards. I'm here to try to get critiques and improve my writing for college. I think that if can improve my writing here it will really help my writing when it really counts. Can't wait to start getting better. How is everyone else doing?

    Hey man, welcome to the site! You've found the right place.

    I'm doing good myself, though quite tired at the moment. And no, I'm not crazy.

    Hi you alright? The best way to get crits is to offer dome yourself, nothing to elaborate, just be honest and constructive. Hope you enjoy the site!

    Hi there
    Hopefully we can help you out with improving your work. People with their names highlighted in green are reviewers so you can go and pm them for reviews. But like Gannon said the best way to get reviews is to give reviews, and to let people see you around the rest of the board.
    Cheers.

    Hi Jason, and welcome.

    I see you've already posted a poem for review, and have received a couple of responses. I hope you've also taken a tour of the site and seen some other reviews already, so you don't have the impression that suggestions for improvement do not mean the reviewer didn't enjoy your work.

    Quite the contrary, in fact! If someone has taken the time to review something from a new, unfamiliar submitter, it means that the piece grabbed their attention.

    I hope you'll take the opportunity to wander the site and get to know us better, as people as well as aspiring or published writers. Writing is not just hard work and seemingly endless revision. If it isn't fun, it is not worth doing.

    See you around, and have plenty of fun!
