    Hey kids

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by crs, Oct 28, 2007.

    I write comdey. I don't fancy myself a great writer. Although I have two short stories that are being published, I think that's due to the strength of the humour more than anything else. I've come to this site to display the worst of my writing, get grilled for it, and improve. I also like dogs.

    Hello crs, 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!

    Hello there and welcome. I see you've been busy already, good to see you getting stuck in. And congratulations on getting published, no easy feat for sure. Anyway, great to have you here and I look forward to seeing you around the site.

    Whilst the topic isn't humourous there is no reason it couldn't be - feel free to enter our short story competition, open to new and established members alike, published or not.
