    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Mprim13, Apr 17, 2009.

    So yeah I'm pretty simple and straight forward. love giving my critiques on peoples work and helping them improve and like it in return also. I currently have a base idea I am trying to flesh out and i figured i would join up and see if i couldn't maybe gather some inspiration/advice.

    Hello Mprin, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    We have plenty of free advice here, and it's worth every penny!

    Posting your own work should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time 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 constructive critique as a vital 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!

    Well basically the idea is that this guy just got out of prison. he skips parole and moves to this small town. after an awful accident he is taken in by this middle aged guy. This guy turns out to be a Sin Eater. (a Sin Eater is a little known figure in Christian mythology who literally consumes the sins of others so they have a morally clean slate. He kills them and they ascend to heaven without having to go through the church.) Anyway the Sin Eater has grown tired of his task and bestows this task on my main character. The story is my characters struggle to cope with what he is and him going through the process of saving these people.
