    That's me. I've been writing for two years now. I'm unpublished, but I've received high praise from my Creative Writing teacher as well as all four English teachers throughout high school. I tend to lean towards dark fiction in the Lovecraft / Poe / King style. I'm working on a novel now and I'm looking for constructive criticism. So, if you see me around, criticize away because I would genuinely appreciate it.

    Well JPMcCune, your intro is very generic and leaves nothing to the imagination. How bout mixing it up some? Add some fancy adjectives and verbs...

    Welcome to the site!

    If you post, I'll probably criticize - it's just what I do.

    Enjoy your time here.

    Hello JP, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Picture if you will, a highway. A lone traveller, one Mr. J. P. McCune, set out one night seeking nothing more than a warm bed and a peaceful night's rest. But fatigue, and an errant search engine, led him to this untravelled highway. A signpost up ahead reads, "Writing Forums - 1 mile," but it's really just another suburb of the Twilight Zone.

    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!
