    Hi there

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by DarenCogdon, Dec 19, 2007.

    Hi there

    Just thought I would introduce myself.

    I'm Daren, aspiring novellist. Have written a couple of articles (one published so far) about two of my main interests - WW2 aircraft and horse-riding.

    At the moment I'm working on a novel, which has gone through various incarnations since I first started on it! It drives me mad sometimes, but I'm not giving up!

    Look forward to hearing your views/tips/ideas etc, especially as I'm having a hard time with commitment to the damn thing! :mad:

    Hello Daren, 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, 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. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Welcome here, I guess novel writing is pretty tough now that I've completed one. It was more of a stress relief program, so don't be frustrated at yourself and hopeflly we can help you out.
