    Oh great. Another one.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Creaking Silence, Jul 22, 2008.

    Hey, all. My name's Creaking Silence. I'm going to state the obvious now. I love to write -- it's what I've been doing for years and years, and hopefully I'll be doing it for years and years. My favorite genre is horror. I am working on a piece right now called Night Terrors, and I'd gladly post it, if I can find out how.

    Well, thank you all for letting me join here. It's going to be a blast on this site. Thank you, again.

    Hey! Love your Joker avatar. Awesome movie, and the Joker is definitely a favorite villain of mine. He's so deliciously dark. But, anyway, welcome to the forums. Hope to see you around! :D

    Hello Jared, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    I've seen your first two reviews on this site, and was duly impressed at the thought that went into these concise, constructive responses. A very fine beginning to your stay here.

    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.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
