    hi im new

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by joschick, Sep 3, 2007.

    hi i am not going to say that i am an accomplished writer because i am not i have always been told to consider writing my thoughts because when i write a letter before i know it i have gone of on a tangent and have writen a 20 page letter. I unfortunately find it easier to concentrate when everyone is in bed but that seems to be interfearing with my getting up for work, so my daughter is either going to have to go to bed early or i have to change my hours.
    Anyway i hope someone out there reads my thread and if anyone replies you will hear my screams from wales lol.

    Hello joschick, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Every member on this site, from the least experienced on up, is here to improve his or her writing. It doesn't matter where your writing started out, or where your ability stands now, it is how much you invest of yourself into becoming a better writer.

    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.

    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 on this site, therefore, is a true workshop, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
