    Me, Indeed

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Clandestine, Apr 27, 2008.

    Hello... my name is Jen, seventeen, northeastern United States.
    I suppose I joined this forum just to test my writing abilities... and to be heard. I write frequently (mostly poetry because my attention span usually prohibits anything longer...) but I don't usually share it because I am equal parts vain and humble, an impossible conundrum which means: the part of me which thinks I am superb doesn't want to brag and the part of me which thinks I suck doesn't want anyone else to know!
    But somehow the internet feels eons away from home and much safer.
    So here I am!

    I write, I read, I mostly paint/draw/photograph, I appreciate music and am surrounded by it but can't play a single instrument, I exist, I live, I breathe, I am an infrequent drinker, a casual smoker, utterly absent-minded, and according to sources I do not trust (parents, friends, and SATs) incredibly smart. ha.

    HI Jen. Kick off your shoes, have a seat. Don't sit in the recliner though, it smells funny. There's snacks in the kitchen.

    I hope you find a comfy spot here!

    Hello Jen, 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!

    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!
