    Hey Everyone!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Whispering Souls, Oct 16, 2007.

    Hi, I am super happy to have joined this site.
    Uhm a little about myself, well I currently work two jobs and I will hopefully attend school next fall. I love to write and draw. Both are a major passion of mine. It's something I do as a hobby versus a job.
    In addition, this would be the second forum I've joined. I joined a different one a year ago.
    I have to add a rather blunt quality. I procrastinate, no matter what it is. Pressure makes sure I do a better job. :p

    So with that said thanks for having me here, I am really excited to meet you all. :)

    Greetings and Welcome to you Whispering Souls. I hope that you will feel at home here, and enjoy your stay, at this wonderful forum, which has a fantastic sense of community spirit. I myself have not been here too long, but am already beginning to feel like this is my second home. The people are great and friendly and the standard of work submitted is excellent. This is definitely a great pace to be.

    Be blessed,
    Shannon.:)

    Hello Whispering Souls, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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.

    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 on this site, therefore, is a true workshop, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
