    Hi

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by writesalot, May 2, 2008.

    My name is Elie I'm a stay at home mother of two girls and I write in my spare time. I'm here to get critique on a few of my stories as well as find out as much as I can about the techniques involved in writing.

    Hello Ellie, 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, and be sure to read through the forum rules, too, to avoid any misunderstandings or hurt feelings!

    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!

    Hi Ellie. Welcome to the forums; they're awesome.

    I think I'm going to nickname you 'Sir Writesalot' in my mind, though. :D

    He is. There's a ton of writingforums.com people here. The site had a database error one day and they came here. :D
