    Salutations...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Fictionfreak, Jan 15, 2008.

    Hey guys,

    It feels wierd being new again. I'm a former veteran at the "other" writing forums, at writingforums.com

    I just wanted to say hi, and that, while I may not be using this site as often, I may use it just to generate "extra" feedback. I have this odd feeling that this site is by some of the same people at writingforums.com, the layout is so similar. Anyway. Good luck fellow writers, I hope I may come to realize the works by all you talented writers.

    -The freakiest of all fictionfreaks, Fictionfreak

    Hello Fiction Freak, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Despite the similar layout, I think you'll find we're quite a bit different from that other site. and indeed from most other writing websites.

    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 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!
