    It is a Pleasure to be Here

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Leaka, Dec 17, 2007.

    I'm Leaka.
    I'm only sixteen years old. My grammar and my English is not so good so please don't get mad at me when my novels are filled with typos and grammar mistakes.
    I generally can write better when passages are shorter, but I tend to bend to the longer passages because my short stories turn into longer ideas.
    Please help me and let me know these mistakes.
    And thank you for lending your time.:)

    Hello Leaka, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Your grammar and English will both improve with practice. In writing and revising a novel, you will have plenty of practice. :)

    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!

    Thank you for the warm introduction.

    I'll try my best Mr. Cogito. I will not just wonder in certain spots. Actually I love learning as well.
    This is going to be fun.

    Welcome to the forum, Leaka.

    If you post your work sometime, I'll do my best to have a read and give you some feedback.

    Thank you Bluemouth sir.
    And I have posted some of my stuff. And I'm trying my best to help people. Though I think I'm confusing them more then helping.

    Oh that. I posted the wrong date.
    I was registering to fast cause I had to go somewhere. Its called school.

    Send a PM to Lpspider to fix your birthdate, if you wish. Only he can make that correction.

    hi Leaka and welcome to the site.

    Hope you have a great time here with all of us and decide to stick around.

    If you do you will find a nice comfy recliner in place of the hard plastic chair you received and your favourite beverage and meal awaiting you every time you log in here. lol

    Seriously I look forward to seeing you around the boards more. You will get use to my non-serious comments eventually don't stress. :p

    Have fun

    Welcome to the site Leaka, and don't worry about being only 16, there are plenty of younger members, myself included. If you ever need any help, would like a review or just want to chat then feel free to send a Pm my way and I'll be happy to take a look. :)

    It is? A pleasure? Well it's just a part of the trouble ;)
    Welcome, I hope you decide to stick around. We'll be happy to help you, provided you are willing to learn. And we, in return, hope to learn from you.
    Happy writing!
