    Okay, horrible at this.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Tangible_Chaos, Nov 22, 2007.

    Hello,

    Eh... I hate introductions but I'm trying to do this ... My Screen Name is Tangible_Chaos. Lots of people ask me how I came up with this (I use it everywhere, because then I never have to worry about it being taken.) but to tell you the truth I really have no idea. I am 17 and live in Michigan.

    I love writing and getting my ideas down on paper but I hate doing the actual act of writing. I never can seem to have the time or I get distracted. I am very easily distracted. So any help there is appreciated.

    I'm cold so I'm going to stop now. If you have any questions, just ... ask.

    ~Chaos

    Hello Chaos, 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. 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 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!

    We all have problems as said above and I for one have found this helpful in bringing ideas to paper (or electronic paper). I hope you do too. We have a talented and knowlegable member base whom I'm sure will be happy to help if asked. Welcome to the site and see you around.

    If you are interested we run a short story contest which you would be more than welcome to enter, for details see this link

    Welcome aboard, may the trip be a happy one. You're so young. I wish I'd started serious work at your age ... ah!!! I needed age to make me write anything worthwhile. I've been published for a number of years now, but I'm sure it would have been easier had I been younger. All the best - Anthony

    I love your signature. I've recently switched back to pen and paper for rough drafts. It is so much better!

    I would just like to welcome you to the insanities of WF.org. A place where you can unleash both the writer and the inner child inside that is waiting patiently to escape. lol

    I do hope that you have a most wonderful time here with all of us. There are a lot of things for you to get involved in and a heck of a lot of wonderful and helpful information on all aspects of writing lurking around the different forums within this board.

    So sit down and get comfy with a nice hot or cold drink and probably a few snacks as well and enjoy reading everything that we have all got to say and do feel free to join in wherever you feel that you can.

    Ok so now that I have rambled away to you I will let you go and enjoy your time here with all of us.

    See you around the boards.

    Torana :)

    Dear Writer,

    Welcome to one of the fastest growing writers forums on the web. I’m sure if you hang around long enough you’ll begin to make new friends and enjoy becoming a participating member of the writersforum.org. I am sure each new member will bring something new and valuable to the forum as well as find it an interesting and wonderful place to explore and learn more about the wonderful world of writing.

    I have been away for awhile myself, and unfortunately have not been able to keep up with greeting the large influx of new members personally. Please forgive, but except my sincerest and belated welcome to the forum.

    Cordially yours,

    Trailer Trash
