    Norwegian writer stepping by

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Low Feedback, Sep 12, 2008.

    Hello in here,

    I'm a creative writer of short stories and longer stories. I've written short stories as long as I can remember, and it has followed me ever since, and developed into a huge interest, a lifestyle.

    Hope to get inspiration and newfound knowledge in here.

    take care

    Hi Feedback, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    I hope you don't live up to your name. We strongly encourage feedback. The thought processes involved in formulating a solid response make for better writing as well.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile 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!

    Cool, a semi-Norwegian. Not bad!

    Det går så som så, akkurat nå. Må si det.

    Glad to see you too, happy to be here.

    HELLO.

    Have you ever read anything by Thor Heyerdahl? I loved Fatu Hiva. I wonder if any of his books are required reading in high school there in Norway.
