    i'm just new here...

    i decided not to introduce my self here, but then i found my self a little lost...I mean really lost, lol. oh well.

    My dog just ran away today, made me super sad. that's what happened to me today, then stumbled upon this site. (yay me)

    I'm not really a writer, i'm a wanna be writer, (have mercy) lolz.

    well, that's pretty much it.

    thanks in advance, if you welcome me that is.
    :D

    Aw :) I'm sorry to hear about your dog, I hope he shows back up. It's never nice to lose a good friend like that. Lots of hugs and good wishes in that regard.

    But, Welcome! What are you lost about? Anything I can help you with? :) I'll try my best.

    Hope you enjoy it here (= It's an awesome site.

    Well :p If you write, then you are a writer. Or so I would think. Can't wait to see some of your work.

    Hey there! Welcome to the site :D

    Of course you're welcome, that's a paradox otherwise! Anyhow, as a fellow member you should know that before posting your own work in the Review Room, you should post two meaningful reviews for your fellow members. Don't know how to review? Look at the reviewing sub-frorum in Writing Issues!

    Any additional questions can be asked without danger of being called a n00b, therefore PM me anytime you want :D Of course, I never said you can tough the cookies...

    Hello Oblivious, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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!
