    Hello Candy, 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!

    reply to all that have welcomed me !!!!

    Hi guys,this site is the first site l have ever joined that is based on writing. I must admit that when l read some peoples comments to others writing, l was a bit disheartened by others remarks as when it comes to my writing it is a very personal road in my life and it's a way I vent things out.But now l have read comments about the poem l wrote when l was 17 about my special son, people weren't as harsh as l thought they would be. I suppose l have looked at writing as there is no right and wrong way of writing,and if it comes from your soul thats all that matters!!! So thanx to the people that haven't put me off this website. Cheers and all the best to everyones future writing successes!!!!!:)
