    Hi Everybody

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Master of Shadows, Jan 3, 2008.

    Hello, I'm new here, obviously. I'm a young writer that needs some inspiration, new critizism and maybe some new ideas, so I found this forum. Well, that's all, besides this: hello everyone.

    Well if I could change it I would: sorry I wasn't really worrying about wording. That's one issue I have with writing: my wording can sometimes be very lame. =P But maybe I'll improve.

    I was only kidding!
    Master of Shadows sounds better to be honest.

    Hello ShadowMeister, 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!

    Well thank you everyone (and there was a lot of you) that said hi! As for my opinion, I like to vice it, but I do think that is my problem. When I want critizism, it's like as soon as I get it I get all offended for some reason. I know it helps my work, but I just can't take it as something that will make me better. Therefore, I've tried putting my opinion away for a while and being more open to see if it helps. I guess we'll find out!

    People are always protective of their work to begin with, Master. You will also find I think that while you are still new around here, most members when reviewing will try and be a little easier on you until you get used to reciewing the critism. just try to remeber that we are helping a the end of the day.
