    Might I introduce myself?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Hindumaliman, May 27, 2009.

    Good to make your acquaintance
    Hindu is my name
    You have not heard of me?
    My my, what a shame
    I have come to this website
    from nothing, but a chance.
    I have come to perform for you
    My little writers dance.

    Hello hello, I'm a new writer with hopes of writing a novel entitled "Lettuce Go On An Adventure" before summers end. I have chapter one handy so I'll post that up for your thoughts. I also hope to contribute to others works and hey...who doesn't love a good RP?

    Hello Hindu, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time 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 constructive critique as a vital 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). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    And while you're looking around, don't forget to check out our Weekly Short Story Contest and Weekly Poetry Contest. They actually run more than one week apiece, but any member may enter, and all members are urged to vote for their favorites.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Wow. I see what you did with the Lettuce bit, clever!

    Or was it not intentional? Whatever way, it sounds really cool anyway!

    I'm new here too, but I am sure you will like it here :)

    Hello Hind,

    Saw some of your word play in the word games - I like it. Welcome and look forward to the Lettuce leafs.
