    Hey there

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by DavidGil, Sep 15, 2007.

    As the title says, hello. I've been writing seriously for several months. I have wrote since around high school time however on and off.

    I mainly write fantasy but I have been known to try my hand at other genres also, such as crime. Hopefully, one day I'll have something finished and polished enough to send off.

    That's it basically about me and writing, so I look forward to being on the forum, critiquing others and sharing my work.

    Hello DavidGil, 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!

    Thanks for the warm welcomes.

    Cogito, I agree with what you're saying and honestly, I don't have anything to show at the moment anyways to post work before reviewing others. Probably won't for quite some time either unless I start work on something else, as I'm wanting to keep the project I'm working on underwraps.

    The only thing I would say is when I critique I normally try to focus on the grammar side of things. Word useage and the order of words in the sentences isn't my forte currently. So hopefully, that'll be good enough until I can improve that aspect.

    I'll check out the links, thanks for them. :)

    I've already had a little look around and I'll be sure to ask any questions if I have them.
