Hi Flash, welcome to the forums Feel free to PM one of the mods if you need help with anything.
Welcome to WF.org! Well, if you want to be safe around here...avoid the cookies...
Here's a basic welcome from all of us. It should be obvious, but in case it isn't, let me explain. The Writing Problems Area is exclusively where opinions on different ways to write, blockages in writing styles and similar problems can be discussed. In the Review Room, you can get critical appreciation and/or analysis of your written material. Behold, you must first review two pieces of writing before posting your own. This is ensure the pieces are evaluated to the most. Other than this, we have Writing Cotnests, weekly and monthly, where you can submit your writing. We also have Word games, Book Discussion and so on, classified under Community interaction. It may interest you if you're just hanging around.
adamant has been kind enough to put many of the things I have mentioned or missed out on in one comprehensive place. If you want to check it out, see the Newbie Packets:

Enjoy it here, and don't feel shy to ask for help. We are all here to teach and learn in a mutual environment. And we hope you can do the same.
Regards and Best Wishes!
Hello Flash Gordon, 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 bulletin boards for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.
Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
welcome indeed, peter!... i'm especially happy to have you aboard, given your 'specialty' as i've lived with the hopi and traveled extensively in tribal areas of both the us and canada, native american history and contemporary life having been a lifelong interest of mine... please drop me an email if you need to know anything about the hopi from one who was accepted among them as a 'sister'...
i've read your site info, some of your blog and the amazon review of the dna book, including the linked article... am hungry for more...
love and hugs, maia
