    Hi guys!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Cheeno, Mar 5, 2008.

    Hi guys! Thanks for having me on your forum. I'm looking forward to making my way through its many hyways and byways. Am interested in the novel (thriller), though am also attracted to the short strory form. Am as yet unpublished, mainly because my work is still in progress :rolleyes: Getting there, though, which is what it's all about. I'm away to check the site out. Catch you later!

    Hello Cheeno, 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!

    Thanks Cogito. Already having a problem. For some reason my gender has been redefined as...FEMALE!! Am currently endeavoring to rectify it, though I'm sorry to say I'm not having much success, so whoever's out there who can assist...please do :confused: Won't stop me checking the place out though:)

    Send a PM to Lpspider. He can fix that, but he is the only one here who can. Don't drive yourself nuts trying to fix it yourself. :)

    I'm back! Thanks guys for the welcome. Am having a ball surfing the forums, and am so looking forward to becoming an active participant. I do, of course, have material I'd love to have feedback on, but I'll stick to the rules of the house and see if I can't contribute first with a bit of reviewing. Later;)
