    I seem to be on a "joining forums" spree...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by MHD, Aug 18, 2008.

    Hullo. I'm Robby/MHD. I'm fifteen years old and I've been wandering forums lately. I stumbled onto this site through Google and thought I'd try it out.

    I write mostly poetry. Dark romance, abstract, taboo themes... My portfolio is pretty morbid. Hurrah. But I don't write emo.

    My addictions include Coca-cola and vanilla ice cream. I detest the Twilight series and Eragon. Hoping to meet some interesting writers here to help me master my craft.

    Welcome to WF. :) Coca-cola is awesome. Also, I like dark stories.

    Hello and welcome. I agree Coca-cola rocks but disagree with the Twilight series. I love poetry and also write some--not very good. Hope to read what you post.

    You know that box next to the Wendy's?
    Welcome. I'm also a coke addict (which doesn't sound right), and I honestly wouldn't be too upset if Stephenie Meyer and Christopher Paolini never wrote again.

    Hello Robby, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    No matter what anyone tells you, snorting Coke is painful and messy.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile 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 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.

    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!
