    hi.....=)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by woahkatie, Apr 3, 2009.

    my names Katie. hahahah, i started out not following directions. so now i have to start here, like i was suppose to, and i think i'm braking another rule, but hopefully not hahahaha. so i'm 16 years old, i LOVE writing. my writing is kinda like my diary pages. instead of writing my day in a diary, i write it as a poem or as a story. so its personal to me. supposedly i'm really good at writing stories. that is my strength. but i do have a weakness of writing songs, and poems. but i am very willing (as of now) to learn how to make my songs and poems better.

    Hello Katie, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work shouldn't be among the very first things you do here. It really 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 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.

    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!
