    Hi Hi Hi there...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Alice_Loves_Hatter, Jun 30, 2008.

    I never know what to say in these things as an introduction, you can see my name and age and all
    I'm very into all of the arts, especially music; I suppose telling you my favourite artists might help people get to know me? So...
    I think the biggest thing anyone here will learn about me is I like Nick Cave

    (a lot.
    A lot a lot.
    You should read his book.)

    and Tom Waits. They're possibly my two biggest influences as far as writing goes; everything they've made is immense. And I'm indebted to their inspirations, people like Yeates, Auden, Bukowski, and so many others.
    As for writers, I'm a bit of a Stephen King junkie, something I tend to get stick for among my literary friends, but y'know, each to their own.

    Anyway, enough of my yakking, I'll just go get posting in other places.

    Hello Alice, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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!
