    Nya!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Aether, Oct 23, 2007.

    Hey! How's it going? Well I'm obviously new here and that's why I'm posting in here so yeah. I like... no, love to write, it's my hobby and I do it whenever I can. Unfortunately I'm going through a block and it's really irritating me. I'm 18 and I live in a wonderful, mystical land of faeries and pixie dust... and puppies roaming in open meadows playing with kittens! Australia! (That kinda stuff really doesn't happen and no we don't have pet kangaroos, I've seen a kangaroo as much as you have... in the zoo)
    I'm really into punk, metal and rock... music I'm talking about here.
    And I really like to play games, as a matter of fact I'm becoming an interactive games developer so yeah.
    Well as you can see I'm immensly wierd, but that doesn't reflect in what I write (well somewhat). What I write is really cool and uber! Anyway, I really hope you guys comment on my writings cause no-one does. :(

    SEE YA ROUND! :-D

    Hello Aether, 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

    Well, you all really know how to make someone feel at home... an electronic home to be exact! Anyway, thanks for those warm welcomes. Now for a cold exit into a cold world... (cry)
    (just kidding)

    Please read my stuff! And all that jazz! And yeah, don't hold back, I don't want a buttered up response. Just like butter, they're full of crap! I want the freakin celery sticks of responses, You know they're good for you but they taste like crap! :-D
