    Hey

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ZeRo.O, Feb 28, 2008.

    Um, I was searching for somewhere to get critique on ym writing and this place showed up. When I saw that there was also an RPG forum, I was sold :)

    Uh, I'm Ben, from Canada and I'm almost 17.

    I'm not sure if you need to be a professional writer to be on here, but uh...I'm not, I've just started writing fiction.

    Welcome to the site! This site's for writer's of all skill levels, so no worries. It's good to hear you're interested in the RPG - we could use a few more people playing.

    Hello Ben, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    The majority of members here are not published professionals (yet). The person who feels he or she has nothing new to learn is far more out of place here!

    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!
