    Long Introductions Make Me Happy

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lutra, May 29, 2009.

    I lied. My name is Tim, I just graduated with a B.S. in Journalism. I love creative writing in any form, reading and writing. Check out my blog at incitetheinsight.blogspot.com for a little taste of my writing and feel free to pm or email me with any comments!

    With that said I'll leave you with a poem :eek:

    This is for those who forgot their family exists.

    don't know a thing about honor,emotional train wreck, you're like jeffery donner.
    live for self, it's all about gain, it's about wealth, you're putting off pain.
    got a bad report, livin with a drunken whore, you're broken, like a ship washed up on shore.
    sister's livin with a perve, mom's blinded by the herb, you better pay heed to what master you serve.
    show a little respect, some time to reflect, cause you're full of neglect.
    you revile in lust a creature of disgust, alone, like a small child with noone to trust
    lettin time fly by, life's a pig sty, noones there to hear your cry.
    get out of that stupor, you're pathetic.
    loser.
    living like one of the blind, never sure what you'll find, always thinkin you got time.
    dig deep in that nerve, it hurts to serve, got nothing to lose, to protect, to improve.
    show some pity,it's time to get witty and remember: you forgot about dignity,
    take out a fresh deck, place another bet, stop ignoring your debt,
    remember this lesson: your family's a blessing, something worth kissing.
    better pay attention before they're gone.
    missing.

    Hello Tim, 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.

    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!
