    Heya

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by charms3468, Dec 7, 2007.

    So, I'm not too good at introducing myself...but hello everyone. Call me Charms or Cee...I don't have a preference and I'll answer to both.
    But anyway...I don't think my writing is all that great, however, I have alot of people tell me otherwise...and one of my friends...(he's around here somewhere) bugged me to no end until I joined this site...so I figured I'd come and check out the site and eventually post something....(once my stupid computer gets fixed).

    Well, that was my share of rambling....*sighs* :redface:

    Hello Charms, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    A dissatisfaction with one's own writing is, I think, a good omen. Dissatisfaction drives the effort to improve, and every writer has room for improvement. I despair for the ones who feel they have arrived at the summit; they probably have, and where do yopu go from there?

    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 Writing Workshops, 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 Writing Workshops, 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 Writing Workshops on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just bulletin boards for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Thanks everyone for the welcomes! And yes, hello to you Sir Valens. (he's the one who bothered me to no end to join.)

    Thanks Cogito for the advice. I think you're probably right. I'll check it out.

    :)

    Dear Writer,

    Welcome to one of the fastest growing writers forums on the web. I’m sure if you hang around long enough you’ll begin to make new friends and enjoy becoming a participating member of the writersforum.org. I am sure each new member will bring something new and valuable to the forum as well as find it an interesting and wonderful place to explore and learn more about the wonderful world of writing.

    I have been away for awhile myself, and unfortunately have not been able to keep up with greeting the large influx of new members personally. Please forgive, but except my sincerest and belated welcome to the forum.

    Cordially yours,

    Trailer Trash

    I would just like to welcome you to the insanities of WF.org. A place where you can unleash both the writer and the inner child inside that is waiting patiently to escape. lol

    I do hope that you have a most wonderful time here with all of us. There are a lot of things for you to get involved in and a heck of a lot of wonderful and helpful information on all aspects of writing lurking around the different forums within this board.

    So sit down and get comfy with a nice hot or cold drink and probably a few snacks as well and enjoy reading everything that we have all got to say and do feel free to join in wherever you feel that you can.

    Ok so now that I have rambled away to you I will let you go and enjoy your time here with all of us.

    See you around the boards.

    Torana
