    Newbie in mint condition!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by bullets4booze, Apr 6, 2009.

    Hi all! I racked up quite a few posts before introducing myself. :D I'm an aspiring filmmaker/screenwriter and joined this forum to interact with talented writers, get some harsh reviews and I guess learn a few things. Sometimes I'm brutally honest so I hope you don't mind if I say your story lacks in something but I usually try to spot any hint of potential in it before posting.. I'm not the self-centered type who thinks everything sucks and my work is the best. My own work can use a lot of improvement, to be honest.

    I'm into "unconventional" stuff like Tarantino movies. I also enjoy Frank Miller. And I like anime but only the classics. Trigun and Cowboy Bepop are my favorites. I hate the new generic stuff.

    Hello B4B, 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 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!

    Ahh....! How refreshing! You seem to be ...perhaps.... a purist or perhaps a perfectionist. That is something i have alot of respect for. Don't get too cynical, though - lol - I've been there:)

    Anyhow, nice to have you. I have noticed that at times you can be a bit critical. However, IMHO, I think we need a tad bit of that 'round here!
