    Meh!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by The Essential Writer, Jul 2, 2008.

    Hey, I'm new here. I'm young and aspiring, and despite those cliches I stand here now. I've used to love Fantasy, but now I've Gravitated towards Science Fiction ( Not that Hard Core technical stuff, bleeeh! ). Favorites are Ender's Game & the SF short story "Stuffing"

    9th Grade's coming soon and I mourn the day my summer writing weeks turn into hard laborour days of homework.

    P.S. I've got horrible Grammer ( Grammar, just kidding he he ) so don't rant me for anything!

    Welcome to Writing Forums! Due to my self given title as welcoming committee leader, have some Oreo's.

    Also, just work on your grammar, Word helps, as well as proofread it. If you try no one will eat you alive. =D

    Yes, share the OREOS!

    Welcome to the our family The Essential Writer. We are open minded, helpful, and honest. As Cogito will tell you later, I am sure, review others' work before you post your own. A post for a post helps the whole forum. Have fun, be honest, and may your keys never strike back.

    PS. You can also post into the "About You" thread to give us all a bit more knowledge about the person behind the name.

    You have to join the welcoming committee and find out where I hid them. =D Hint hint...I mentioned it in another intro post. =D

    Oh and TEW, I've gathered the people here, me included, are slightly, or not so slightly, insane. =D

    Yes, Oreos!

    Not much to say about myself. Geeky describes myself, I guess... I'm the nerd reading in the back of class who Ace's tests and thinks of ways to thwart the government. Due to my, 'wierdness', I guess you could call me Different.

    Yes! Finally I can further discuss my several plans for Doomsday ( of several variations ) and rant on about how horrible our 2008 Candidates are.

    Clinton - No need to say anything, point already made.
    Obama - Good, but too young and inexperienced.
    McCain - Also, good, but very old and history of sickness. Could die any day.

    There's a Fan Fic thread as well as as RPG thread, neither of which are my forte.

    As to politics, go to the lounge my friend. Now. And just in case you speak spanish, there's a Spanish lounge here as well.

    Hello Essential Writer, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    To Acglaphotis: There is not an entire forum here in Spanish, but there is one thread in the lounge, La Taberna EspaƱola.

    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 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 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!
