    Looking forward to a great experience!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by glnagy, Jun 12, 2008.

    Hey all, Garnet Nagy from the northern Saskatchewan Parkland here looking forward to getting to know everyone and hoping to grow and develope my writing 'skills' to some extent. In a nutshell(and hopefully without boring anyone too much!), I've worked and lived with my family in the somewhat untouched and isolated Parkland region where I have been involved in offline business for most my life, somewhere along the way I came online, discovered social networking and ended up blogging a bit. I tend to just spit things out the way I see them at the moment and much of the feedback I recieved was more than I ever expected!

    Above all I enjoy writing and talking about LIFE, and am looking to get into writing fiction on this very subject.

    Hello Garnet, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile 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.

    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 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!

    Awesome! Thanks for the warm welcome everyone and to Cogito for all the tips! I will definitely be taking the time to look around over the coming weeks to see how everything works cause hey, you gotta check the water before you dive in, right?

    Thanks again and I'm looking forward to seeing all of you around the site!
