    now that i have your attention, i might as well tell a little bit about myself. I like to write (obviously). I write mainly humor bits and parodies. But novel wise i like to write mysteries, historical, romance, anything that involves human beings, not aliens. I'm not a huge fan of science fiction writings (but i love star wars movies, and yes i know that's contradictory). I don't know what it is with science fiction. it just makes me laugh no matter how well written it is. Perhaps it's because of the ridiculous names. I mean you never see an alien named bob. Why not? what's wrong with the name bob? who knows.

    anywho...i guess i'm out for now!!:eek:just becasue he's cute. i'm not really feeling EEKY today...

    Hello fatbird, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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!
