    Hey, what's up? I'm Grace.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Aiguillette, Jul 6, 2008.

    Hello! My name is Grace. I love to write, but it's become kind of a second thing to me. I design clothes, and sew. I'm still in school, and it's going pretty well. It's kind of hard juggling school, homework, sewing, and writing, but it's great.
    I love to talk to people, so totally feel free to email or private message me.
    I'm very outgoing, and if I want to say something, it won't be held in.
    If there's one thing I've learn as a Fashion Designer and a Writer, it's that the world is cold, expect the unexpected, don't take things too personally, and be strong. Always state your mind. Never say something you don't really believe in.

    I have a cousin, Marie Brenner, who is a professional writer, she's really fabulous. She works for Vanity Fair, and she wrote, I think her 3rd book, Apples and Oranges, which is a true story. It's really amazing, and everyone I know cried reading it. It was fabulous. You can pick it up at any Barnes and Noble or Borders. It's really great, check it out! :)

    Hello Grace, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile 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.

    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 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 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). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
