    Hi, fellow writers.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ToeKneeBlack, Jun 6, 2014.

    Hello everyone,

    I apologise for not coming her first. I've probably been a bit hasty and annoyed a some of the established members, but I apologise and I won't do it again.

    My name is Tony and you can probably guess what I'm up to - many new members are probably aspiring new writers, and I'm one of their number. Even though I've read a handful of short stories and novels, I'm no expert so I'll be learning all the way.

    As for genres, I prefer a mix of science fiction and super heroes.

    Well Hello!

    Welcome aboard. Idk how long you've been around but I hope you've read the Rules. If not there's a tab at the top. And while your at it, you may as well check out the new "New Member Quick Start" which has much of the same info, but in a more fun and engaging layout. :)

    Anyway, glad to have you. I'm sure you'll find everything you're looking for, just participate, be nice, an have fun exploring. And hey, Sci-fi, super-hero is about where I am right now anyway. I must reluctantly admit it's probably due to the trend right now. Even so, I've always written about super characters so it's not too different I don't think. :)

    Hi, Tony, and welcome to the forum! I actually came here to give you the standard new-member welcome, but I see @Andrae Smith has already done that. (Thanks, Andrae!)

    Anyway, this is a great forum for writers, as I'm sure you've already discovered. Enjoy the place, why dontcha? :)

    Welcome. Some of the members are published writers, but most of us are, like you (and me) still in the "aspiring" category. I think of this as a very large study group, where we all are learning from one another.

    Enjoy!

    NP, @minstrel! :agreed: You mods get busy, so it's no trouble doing some of the meet and greet.

    This is a good way to think about it! I've learned so much here, and made some good friends too.

    Thank you for the warm welcome, everyone.

    Whoops, looks like I shouldn't rely entirely on the spell checker ;)

    I'll have a look around and try my hand at critiquing.
