    Hiya!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by tummer, Apr 18, 2009.

    Hello, my screen name is known as tummer all around the internet. I started writing about two years ago and i've written some pretty good stuff. One thing i wrote for a website was titled Three Angels. I mostly write stories but i write some poetry and scripts.

    I'm someone you would call an otaku, I LOVE anime! My favorite anime is Death Note and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

    I am also currently writing a novel and hope to get it published very soon.

    welcome tummer, I'm new here as well, I'm looking forward to seeing your writings come to life. just take it easy, the mods will want you to read the forum rules before you post anything so that there's no misunderstandings, but don't worry, the rules are pretty short and frankly take common since :D enjoy!

    Hello tummer, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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!
