    Hey

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by faceless, May 27, 2009.

    Hi, I found this forum yesterday so thought that I would join. I wrote a lot of different things when I was at school but haven't since, at the moment I have the urge too write so hopefully something good will come out.

    I've always loved reading, my current favourite author would have to be Len Deighton and I am currently reading Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk.

    Well I haven't written anythong of note since school, I seem to remember writing fantasy stories with dragons and princesses and big swords that kind of thing. We also used to make little comic type books,we had one on football and another on a gang of mean looking guys, but I couldn't and still cannot draw so I used to do more of the stories, although sadly I can't remember if they were any good!

    I will read anything my mood takes me from my seat here I can see Bomber by Len Deighton, French Revolutions by Tim Moore, The Hannibal Lecter Omnibus by Thomas Harris, Fight Club by Chich Palahniuk, The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connolly and American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. All of which are different but all I could easily call my favourite read.

    I'm not sure that answered your questions but thanks for saying Hi :)

    Hello Faceless, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Your username reminds me of an interactive mystery-solving serial on the old Prodigy service many years ago. Faceless was a character who was always one step ahead of the protagonist and would leave tantalizing clues.

    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 constructive critique as a vital 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). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. 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!
