    It's me! In the thing!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by starkravenmadd, Jan 13, 2008.

    Heya folks!

    New here, had a look about the place and thought I should say hello.

    Hello!

    So I am starkraven madd. I love to write things of all kinds. Married for many years, no kids, 3 cats. I have an identical twin sis, and work as a receptionist for a small but rapidly growing emergency room.

    I joined here because although I have written for years I am just now starting to develop an interest in becoming published. I like to write poetry, short fiction and just finished my first book.

    I came here so I could see what others were up to and see if I could lend a hand. Oh and of course post my own things for opinions. :D

    So I am off to see what you monkeys have been up too! See you about the place folks.

    Hello starkraven madd, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    With a name like that, you're bound to fit in well with all of us eccentrics.

    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!

    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!

    Cool! Must be fun being a receptionist. Eh, I've never been one myself. Go figure ;) So welcome to the site, and keep having fun with us too. Take good care of the cats...I'm known to eat cats on Thursdays.
