    I'm New! Hurray?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Sister Sinister, Aug 10, 2008.

    Yes.
    Well, this place is much better than most writing websites I've joined.
    (Much, MUCH better...)
    Anyway..:

    Hello.
    My name is Julianna.
    I like writing horror and romance stories.
    Poetry is my love.
    I also like writing songs and helping people with writer's block.
    Hurray.
    ^^
    (I also like text smilies. So... sorry if I overuse them. > >)

    Hey, welcome Julianna! If you like helping with writer's block you've definitly come to the right place. I think we're all suffering from it to some extent.

    Hello Julianna, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Yes.
    Well, I made a thread on my tips on how to solve writer's block somewhere lost in General Writing (writing issues).

    Thank you for the welcoming. ^^

    Thank you to all who welcomed me.
    I hope that some of my work will be posted on here sometime soon.
    (Once I start reviewing, that is. x] )
    Anyway, once again, thank you all who welcomed me. ^^

    Hurray is right, I think. This is a pretty friendly environment, so I hope you enjoy the forums. Welcome. :)

    ...I really wish poetry could be my love. Too bad I'm a dreadful poet, LOL.
