    Hey

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Aeixious, Mar 23, 2009.

    Well, I'm new. A bit about myself:

    I am a 21 year old veteran (honorable discharge from the navy because I'm gay... but that's a much longer story than what is warranted here), currently studying full time on the GI bill, pursuing a degree in computer science. I am excessively nerdy, introverted, and shy. I live with my boyfriend a half hour away from 'the City'.

    Sometimes I play drums for my kid brother's garage band, and I used to play drums for an actual band, but that stopped when I joined the navy. I enjoy most types of rock, my limits being around the more abstract kinds of indie and death metal. I am a borderline audiophile, the quality of the sound sometimes matters more the content of the sound.

    I play a lot of video games, World of Warcraft being my favorite, I could be considered one of the people who are 'addicted' to it. Some of my other favorite games are Mass Effect, SimCity 4, and Team Fortress 2.

    Well, enjoy. I have had entirely too much caffeine today.

    Hey Aeixious! Welcome to the WF!

    :eek: You guys play drums? That's awesome! I wish I had my own set of drums.
    It's so much fun!

    Nice to meet you

    Hello Aeixious, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time 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.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Actually, it started as my WoW screen name and became my screen name for everything else. I just wanted something with a bunch of vowels.
