    Like a VW a little slow warming up

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Egil1Eye, Oct 12, 2010.

    Well, as the title states, a little slow to start.

    Please let me intoduce myself, sometimes a difficult thing to do. Currently living in Niagara Falls Canada, working as an Aquachef (think about it for a moment, if unsure just ask :rolleyes:)

    I will be the first to admit, I'm as close to newbie as it may get. I have just recently taken up pen and paper again about 6 months ago, the last time that happened was highschool. Even in all that time though my imagination has always been presenting me with vivid, wonderful, and sometimes disturbing images, many of which were set down for some future use.

    I have been visiting now for a couple of weeks and have very much liked what it is that I have seen.

    In that time I have read all rules and regulation, and other relavent information, and I couldn't agree more with it.

    In being a part of this forum I hope to improve on my current writing skills, and ongoing comprehention of my own language (something that on a daily basis seems to want to implode on itself sometimes)

    Thank you in advance for allowing me to further my own education and understanding.

    Hello Egil Eye, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Niagra Falls! Slowly I turned. Step by step, inch by inch...

    Please read How to Use the Review Room before you post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on 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 the RPG forum for improvisational fiction. Also try 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!

    An Aquachef? From previous posts, I take it that's like washing up or something? Unless you really do cook water..

    And welcome. :)

    Not glorious, but certainly pays the bills.
