    Hey...!! =]

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Metanoia, Jun 2, 2008.

    My name is Katelyn. I live in the Midwest part of the United States, and am 16 years of age. Writing has been a passion of mine since I first picked up a pen, and I thoroughly enjoy reading others' works. I appreciate honesty. My username, Metanoia, is Greek for "change" or "change of heart". (some may intrepret its meaning as "repentence", but that is not my intended meaning) I hope this site turns out to be helpful! :)

    Hi Katelyn!
    Very pretty name, and I like the username also.
    My name is Lucy. I'm almost 13, and I live in Wales, in the UK.
    If you ever need anything, feel free to ask me (you can PM me) and I'll be happy to help. :)

    Hello Katelyn, 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. 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!

    I saw your signature and had to come over here. So, from one Katelyn to another... hello! :) And welcome. I hope you enjoy it around here. I was 16 when I first started joining places like this, and I've found them very helpful. Everyone's pretty friendly, so never hesitate to ask if you have any questions!

    (I must say, I like the way you spell your name. I've always thought it was the best way :p)
