    Phaiyle @ Nothing!!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Phaiyle, Nov 23, 2007.

    Hello, My name is Phaiyle (Fail). I'm nineteen. I've been writing since I was pretty young. For the longest time I was terrified to show my stuff to anyone. I still wont share my poetry with the world. Even my closest friends. I've been trying to write a novel since my freshman year in high shcool. Its not going to well. Love the characters but oh god do I wish I could make the plot worthy of them.

    Lets see. What about me. I'm pretty opinionated, but I'm nice about it. I don't, however, really like to sugar coat things. Pretty blunt. I'm pretty ok at positive critique. I get touchy when my work is disliked. I had a creative writing teacher who hated everything I did because it wasn't lovey Dovey like all the other girls.... I tend to go for a more action/horror/scifi/fantasy. Everyday life bores me.

    Doop de doop. Well thats about it. Phaiyle is nutts. The end.

    Hello Phaiyle, 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!

    Bienvenido. Hope your stay is long and fruitful. About your writing. We all started somewhere. No one is born a writer even though some like to think so. It's a long and sticky road, but oh so sweet when it happens. Keep at it, and good luck - Anthony

    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
