    I'm a fifteen year old girl from South Africa. I never have much to say and when I do it's usually garbage, so feel free to ignore me. Just thought I should say hi.

    I'm stunned. It never occured to me that you're only fifteen. You'll find quite a few familiar faces here. Enjoy the forums.

    Hey Baron! Yeah, I've noticed a few of you already. Hopeless, all of us.

    Hello howowiginal, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    I doubt what you have to say is garbage, but there is much to be said about not saying it in many words. I once had a college instructor whose words of wisdom about presenting were, "Be brief, and be gone."

    I guess it never really caught on for me though.

    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!

    ILTBY: Oh, yes. I was lurking around your gallery the other day, I remember (I saved some of your work, hope you don't mind... :redface:). I'm not a very active member, though.

    Bluemouth: Ooh, end of the year? Beaches will be packed. I hope you have a lovely time. Keep safe...
