    Heya xD

    Hi, my name is Ella and I'm from Portugal. Nice to meet you! Among my fave things are Art, DIY, and activism. I love the writings of Shakespeare, Baudelaire and Camilo Castelo Branco. I also love Fernando Pessoa.
    My hobbies include playing guitar, drawing and going for walks with my "Gang".
    xoxo

    Hello Ella, 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.

    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 on this site, therefore, is a true workshop, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
