    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there!

    *Don't worry, I don't usually type like how the title of this thread is written*

    I was referred to the site by g1ng3rsnap9ed (what up G!), a buddy from another forum.

    Now a little about myself, let's see here, I'm a 21 year old guy from Ontario, Canada (Eh). I'm half Hungarian and half Irish (great mix) and I happen to love writing (duh) whether it's music, scripts or storys.

    I'm obsessed with the Horror genre, so all my writing is focused in that area. I'm currently working on a couple original scripts and some Halloween fan fic.

    I just write for the love of it, not trying to really take it anywhere, although I wouldn't complain if it made me some moolah, Lord knows I could use some.

    But ya, I think that's about it for now, been around enough forums so I know how everything works, and I'll try my best to stay active.

    I look forward to reading everybody's work, and hopefully you all feel the same...:cool:

    Hello Mistah, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    I'm glad to hear that you normally hold back on netspeak. It's use here is generally discouraged.

    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!

    I'd love to read your stuff some time.

    Hey! Welcome etc - I'm also new here. I love reading horror so I look forward to seeing some of your pieces, unfortunately I find writing it myself very difficult.
    Half Hungarian though, that's cool - I am a quarter Hungarian :) I love Hungary!
