    Hi everyone :)

    Currently writing a short story for Extension English and I'm struggling with where to go next, so I looked around for some help on Google and found this forum.

    I'm 16, from the Blue Mtns, NSW. Big animal lover, I love reading, enjoy writing, a very loyal music-listener, love shopping and a huge movie buff.

    I look forward to getting to know you all and to reading stories around the site.

    Josie.

    Thanks Anthraxx :) I'm a frequent forum-user so I know my way around fairly well, I spend far too much time on the Internet. I've never been on a writing forum, though :)

    Hello Josie, 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.

    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 on this site, therefore, is a true workshop, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Thanks for the welcome Torana and Cogito.

    I've explored a little bit, but didn't realise I should post in the Review Room first, sorry about that, I'll look around it now.

    Thanks again.

    You are most welcome and there is no need to apologise for not realising at first. With anything new, it takes time to work your way around. Just relax and enjoy.

    Enjoy your stay.
