    Hey.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by writersock, Feb 16, 2008.

    Hey there, I'm just a 17 yr old, writing for fun. I'm more of a painter than a writer, and I think you can see that in my style. I love playing around with words and their total effect, which is why I like so many of the Beat poets, including Allen Ginsberg. Most of what I write is taken from personal experiences, or inspired by the city. I'm currently working on a novel, I think. I've never written one before, and most of what I write is so much shorter that I'm afraid I'll give up half way. I decided to join this site as a way to keep myself going.

    writersock.

    Hello writersock, 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!

    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!

    Have another belated welcome to the site, lol :)

    We're glad to have you here and I, for one, hope that you find the motivation you need to continue your writing.
