    It's MOI!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Camdyn-Swift, Jul 16, 2009.

    I'm a complicated, simple, organized, messy oxymoron. I'm afraid of sharks, and I love the ocean. Airplanes are my biggest fear, and I must love penguins because they don't fly. I'm goofy and serious and crazy and sophisticated and an imperfect perfectionist. I support our troops and live life like it's worth it, because it is. I'm fearful of lobotomies, and I will argue just to argue. I have bad traits and good traits and chocolate cravings and green shirts and an insanely goofy sense of humor. I have faults and fantasies and dreams and enemies and even more important than enemies, I have friends. I'm a fan of yellow roses. Of beaches. Of music. Of orange juice. Of...sentence fragments? And I may even be a fan of you. This is me. Know me...and take it or leave it. I don't change for anyone. I'm cynically optimistic. According to various Facebook quizzes, I'm one-hundred percent awesome and ninety-eight percent datable. In other words, you definitely want to talk to me.

    There you have it. A make-shift, paragraph long introduction. PM me if you have any questions, and if I post please check out my stuff! I'll definitely be giving feedback on your stories soon.

    Oh. And, you can call me Cam. :D

    Hola Cam, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time 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.

    Also, be aware that posting a piece of writing on any public site, including this one, will greatly diminish your chances of selling it for publication. Removing the writing later does not alter that fact - once posted, it is irreversibly considered published. So do not post anything more than a small excerpt of any piece you are planning to submit for publication.

    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 constructive critique as a vital 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). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Hey, all! Thanks so much for the welcome! :) I would have replied sooner, but I was in Europe. I refuse to pay seven Euros for one minute of computer time...

    The plane was okay this time, though. I had panic pills. :p
