    Hey all

    Dont you just hate introduction threads ;)
    I have no idea what to say about myself, so excuse me if I waffle.

    I love writing, always have. I have won Nano twice and also written other stuff. I have never been brave enough to send anything off though and I am mainly trying to learn editing my work for when I do get brave.

    Other stuff i love is the sims, warcraft and my xbox 360.

    Hey flid, welcome to the site!

    Congrats on your Nano wins, that's excellent. We'd love to see some of your work. I'm sure you'll get on well with everyone. And, just for the record, I happen to be a PS3 fan myself. ;)

    Enjoy your time here,

    Hello flid, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Waffles sound fine, especially the crispy homemade ones with chopped pecans in a buttermilk batter, topped with toasted glazed pecan halves and drizzled with caramel sauce.

    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 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!

    Ever After is one of my favorite movies of all time! It used to make me cry EVERY time I watched it (and I am not into chick flicks). There is just something about that movie that I really relate to. It is so good to see another fan. Welcome!

    Its funny you say that lol. I am not a chick flick fan or really a weepy person, but that film always makes me get a lump in my throat and I always smile at the end when the king and queen call her mother in.

    hello and welcome.

    and I really hate chick flicks in a way I can never describe....but yes that one wasnt too bad. Though I was forced into watching it from start to finish.....I won't tell you that story though :p

    Anyways have fun and see you around the boards.
