    hi people

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by fantasy girl, Apr 15, 2009.

    hi, im new to this forum
    i am a young girl who loves writing books, expecally fantasy. i have written a few books and am in the middle of writing a sequal to my latest book 'the innocent's race' none of my books are extreamly long so dont take me long to write but still love doing it. i have started a thread called 'the innocent's race' and was wondering if people who are interested in reading my story would contact me on the forum and i will send me a coppie, even if you are just a critict as i would love some advice on improving my writing.

    Hello Fantasy Girl, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Broadcasting to ask members to do offline reviews is against site policy.

    Posting your own work should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time 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 constructive critique as a vital 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.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Hi?

    Hello... again?

    I'm not a new user, but I haven't been on here in what seems like forever.

    When I first joined up, I was not the best of writers, but after a year or so practice, I have improved considerable amounts.

    If you remember me, then hey.

    If not, then, hi, I'm Beth. ice to meet you :)
