    Howdy.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Dean, Nov 18, 2007.

    Well, howdy. I'd like to introduce myself as a new member to the forums (although I'm sure you've already guessed that). Anyway, I love reading and writing and I'm working hard to improve both how well I read and how well I write. I think that languages are beautiful and amazing things and I plan on learning as many as possible. (Computer languages included, since I plan to major in Computer Science.) Anyway, I love television and video games, and I don't believe that either rot your brain. I feel that video games get blamed for a lot when they don't deserve it.

    Well, I don't like talking about myself much so I think I'll cut it off here. Anyway, I hope to make a few friends here and have a lovely experience.

    Howdy Dean, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    I agree with you about the beauty of languages, both natural and artificial. I am not proficient in any natural languages other than English, although I know a smattering of Spanish, German, and Latin. In the area of artificial languages, I have worked with well over a dozen computer languages. It is a fascinating field.

    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!

    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 on this site, therefore, is a true workshop, 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!

    Hi Dean, I'm also a fan of language and languages - I have a dual honours degree in French and Lingusitics to prove it! If you have any questions for us then please don't hesitate - other than that I look forward to seeing you around the site.

    I would just like to welcome you to the insanities of WF.org. A place where you can unleash both the writer and the inner child inside that is waiting patiently to escape. lol

    I do hope that you have a most wonderful time here with all of us. There are a lot of things for you to get involved in and a heck of a lot of wonderful and helpful information on all aspects of writing lurking around the different forums within this board.

    So sit down and get comfy with a nice hot or cold drink and probably a few snacks as well and enjoy reading everything that we have all got to say and do feel free to join in wherever you feel that you can.

    Ok so now that I have rambled away to you I will let you go and enjoy your time here with all of us.

    See you around the boards.

    Torana :)

    Dear Writer,

    Welcome to one of the fastest growing writers forums on the web. I’m sure if you hang around long enough you’ll begin to make new friends and enjoy becoming a participating member of the writersforum.org. I am sure that you as a new member will bring something unique and valuable to the forum, as well as find it an interesting and wonderful place to explore and learn more about the wonderful world of writing.

    I have been away for awhile myself, and unfortunately have not been able to keep up with greeting the large influx of new members personally. Please forgive, but except my sincerest and belated welcome to the forum.

    Cordially yours,

    Trailer Trash
