    The Overlord has come!!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Master Hand, Mar 31, 2008.

    I'm not your typical 12-year-old n00b, so don't get that idea. I have been labeled as prodigious by my quondam comrades (emphasis on "quondam"), but I know that compared to the adult community, I'm probably total crap. So, I came here to get my stuff butchered by the various members of the site until it vaguely resembles something publishable. Now all I have to do is wait and see how good this forum is, hm? It looks promising. I look forward to interacting with the various members of this forum and sharing my creative insight with them. Et maintenant, au revoir. I have some copy/pasting to do.

    So your friends think you're the greatest thing since sliced bread, and now they're not your friends anymore?

    We already have overlords... like five of them. Last time a sixth showed up... actually. You should totally stay! *Gets popcorn and camcorder and prepares for show*

    Welcome!

    Well, catch is, it's either be friends with me or be mercilessly harassed. I'm not exactly a good image, and everyone I've ever considered myself friends with have either jumped on the bandwagon or been dragged kicking and screaming to the other side of the planet.

    But yeah, thanks for the positive reception, everyone.

    For a twelve year old you have shown great initiative by joining a writing forum. I'm looking forward to reading your work.

    Hello Master Hand, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    We try to avoid butchering. Instead, we would rather filet, paring down to the essential, best material, and discarding the hair, scales, bone, and gristle.

    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!

    I'm amazed that you are only 12 years old. Your writing voice sounds much older! But I can't wait to see what you write! I'm sure you'll bring a new perspective to the site.

    hello and welcome to the forum
    I hope that you have a most wonderful time here with all of us and don't worry, you will at some point come face to face with the forum crazies, but they don't bite at all, so you are pretty safe I guess. If they do bite....hmmm....
    have fun and see you around the boards anyways....
