    Hi everyone

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by sarah1983, Oct 28, 2007.

    Another newbie here. I'm Sarah (if you hadn't guessed by the amazingly imaginative username) and I have truly mastered the art of procrastination. I'm hoping there are people on here nice enough to give me a good, hard kick :) I've been writing on and off for as long as I can remember but I've never been consistant with it, I'll write like crazy for a few weeks then not write a thing for months. I mostly write fantasy but apparently have the knack of getting inside an animals head and telling a story from their point of view. I'm taking part in NaNoWriMo again this year because I had great fun with it last year :D
    I'm a full time security guard at the moment but I'm hoping to get into dog training. I have one dog, Rupert. He's around 5 and I got him from the shelter 3 and a half years ago. Weird doesn't even begin to describe Rupe :rolleyes:
    Well, I think that's enough useless information for now. I'm off to explore the rest of the site :)

    Sarah

    Hi Sarah

    Welcome to the site. You are two weeks younger than my daughter who is called .........Sarah. Actually she uses her middle name Lisa as she thinks Sarah sounds too posh. Good luck in everything you want to do

    Hello Sarah, 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!
