    :eek: Newbie!

    hello i stumbled across this forum while randomly browsing Google and decided to join up. I'm not much of a hardcore writer to be honest, but I do it to pass the time, I find it's a nice way to get away from the gruelling day to day crap that sometimes lands in everyones laps :p I enjoy reading through other peoples work more than my own really, so i hope it's okay for me to leave a couple of reviews, but i probably will post one or two of my own things.

    ok, little meme - I'm 19 from the UK, single mother (i know, how modern of me :rolleyes:) of a 3 year old boy called Tom who is everything to me. I work part time in a bar and spend the rest of my time on a foundation Art course at university. I'm boring myself with this now so I'll shut up :D
    Looking forward to joining in the festivities

    'Ello fishies, 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!

    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!
