    Newbie with a rusty pen

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by xMissDarbyx, Apr 26, 2008.

    Hi everyone!

    My name's Michelle - and it's been a while since I did any writing at all, but lately the creative side of my brain has been itching for something to do, so I'm here to see if I can spark up my imagination again.

    I used to do original short stories and fanfics.. and some poetry, but I don't like to admit it :p Time will tell what I'll come up with this time. Just here to say hello to everyone and introduce myself! :D

    Hello Michelle, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    No matter how much it may itch, scratching your gray matter is not recommended. Especially with a rusty pen!

    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 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.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
