    Hi guys!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by totalpackage2008, Jul 9, 2008.

    Just joined a few minutes ago and wanted to say hello to everyone!

    I LOVE writing...as I'm sure everyone on this board does lol. I write everything from lyrics to fiction novels so I'll be posting a variety of things on here. I just started my novel for the hundreth time lol but I promise I'm going to finish it! I've made the small commitment to write at least 2 hours everyday. I work full time as a preschool teacher AND go to school full time--majoring in English...so 2 hours is all I have right now except on weekends, I'll try to do a little more. :p

    I also do a little modeling and acting (haha doesn't everyone?) :redface:

    Oh and I live in Dallas, Texas...well a little suburb about 20 miles north of downtown dallas....

    Okay now that I've put out my life story for anyone who cares I'm going to go start exploring the site! Peace :)

    Hello Total Package, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    I can honestly say I've never modelled, and have only acted in one play - I played Lazar Wolf in Tevya and His Daughters way back in high school.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile to see what other people have done to improve their writing, and see if some of it applies to your writing as well. That is part of why we require members to review other members' work before posting their own for review. On the other hand, there are no restrictions, other than content and copyright rules, on showcasing your work in your member blog.

    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, and be sure to read through the forum rules, too, to avoid any misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Respect for one another is our principal mandate.

    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!
