    My name is Brad.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by bradbradallen, Jan 26, 2009.

    Hello everyone, my name is Brad and I am 17 years of age. Judge my method of type as you will, but I consider the way I go about typing to be slanted towards the more "proper" end of the spectrum. My interests consist of Old-English Literature, Golf, anything relevant to computers, writing (my passion), as well as any decent movie. I am always up for a debate, so long as you have solid facts to back up your opinion, not merely an emotional blurt of whatever passes between your ears. I look forward to reading what you all have to say and express as well as any critique you all may put toward works of my own.

    Hey bradbradallen! Welcome to the WF!

    I love debates too! Perhaps one day we will debate over something :)

    Nice to meet you
    - Jack

    Hello Brad, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    This site favors diuscussion rather than debate. The difference is that we don't encourage arguing positions. Arguments tend to turn heated, and that's a tone we prefer to avoid.

    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 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.

    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!
