    introductions

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by coolpearls, Jun 6, 2008.

    Hello, my name's Emily. I live in Oregon and go to a community college here (but my last finals are on Monday, thank god!). I'm thinking of majoring in English. I write mainly fiction, but I dabble in nonfiction as well. I found this site from searching 'writing forums' on google. I look forward to posting around here!

    Hello Emily, 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, 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!

    I live in Pendleton. Most famous for it's Round-Up Rodeo. It's way in the northeast.
