    Introductions :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Dayanim, Dec 6, 2007.

    Hi everyone :)
    My name is Marc im quite newly come to writing. Ive been doing so for years without really realising it, mostly on roleplaying forums. :)

    Last year i spent overseas travelling through india, the middle east and europe where a friend really got me thinking about my writing, and i started writing in a journal. My roleplaying i realised is what originally got me started on my own writing where i started creating my own world. I draw alot of science fiction, fantasy and philosophy influences and im quite excited to have found such an outlet for my creative side.

    Anyway enough of the bio hehe really lookign forward to check ing out this forum, and hoepfulyl joining you all with writing my own things, reading others etc :)

    take it easy ;)

    Welcome to the site! :)

    Melbourne, eh? I'm from Adelaide. Your trip sounded like it was fun.

    Anyway, you'll fit right in here it's great place. And 'Dayanim', is this your real name or not? Either way I really like it.

    hey thanks :)

    Adelaide, not far from me thats for sure! actually Dayanim is an old nick from my Role Playing days. I tend to use it for anything creative. Its derived from Hebrew, fit my character at the time. It kinda means "Spiritual judges/preists" which really fit that char. Doesnt really fit me but ive been using it so long I just like it. Anyway it shortens to "Day" which i really like hehe

    any my trip was the most interesting experience of my life. I think i learnt more travelling meeting people, sitting in random places writing than in any class or course!

    thanks for the welcome looking forward to getting into this with you all :D

    Hello Marc, 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 Writing Workshops, 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 Writing Workshops, 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 Writing Workshops on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just bulletin boards for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Dear Writer,

    Welcome to one of the fastest growing writers forums on the web. I’m sure if you hang around long enough you’ll begin to make new friends and enjoy becoming a participating member of the writersforum.org. I am sure each new member will bring something new and valuable to the forum as well as find it an interesting and wonderful place to explore and learn more about the wonderful world of writing.

    I have been away for awhile myself, and unfortunately have not been able to keep up with greeting the large influx of new members personally. Please forgive, but except my sincerest and belated welcome to the forum.

    Cordially yours,

    Trailer Trash

    I would just like to welcome you to the insanities of WF.org. A place where you can unleash both the writer and the inner child inside that is waiting patiently to escape. lol

    I do hope that you have a most wonderful time here with all of us. There are a lot of things for you to get involved in and a heck of a lot of wonderful and helpful information on all aspects of writing lurking around the different forums within this board.

    So sit down and get comfy with a nice hot or cold drink and probably a few snacks as well and enjoy reading everything that we have all got to say and do feel free to join in wherever you feel that you can.

    Ok so now that I have rambled away to you I will let you go and enjoy your time here with all of us.

    See you around the boards.

    Torana
