    Might as well start at the introduction forum :P

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Tomcattomato, Mar 2, 2008.

    Let's start at the start shall we?

    I'm a 19 year old guy from The Netherlands (or Holland.. though those are ony 2 provinces :x) aaaand I've been writing 'poetry' for some time now. Usually I'd just show it to some friends but I'd love to get more people to read them, because I intend to write a lot more and some criticism couldn't hurt (I guess)

    Ehm, well that's about all I can tell about me for now >_> find the rest out as time passes by :p

    Hello Tomcattomato, 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!

    Hi there! Glad you've decided to join us :) We'll try not to be too harsh on the writing ;) Lol, you're in a good place... we don't bite, we're just a little crazy.
