    There sure are a bloody lot of these...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Ted, Dec 27, 2008.

    Though, that can only be a good thing.

    Aaaaanywho...

    My real name isn't Ted. Sorry, Kate. I wasn't really thinking of anything when I wrote in my username, but Ted just surfaced. I enjoy it. It's very inconspicuous.

    I'm a teenager with a few short bursts of writing creativity, but what caught my attention was the RPG forum. Hence, here I am. Well... to lengthen this up a bit...

    I was spawned in California, the land of happy cows (and a byproduct of those happy cows; good cheese - or was it milk?). My family moved to a -very- small town in Nevada, since my dad got a job there. I hate it, honestly. I am very determined to make a living off of musical things, for which I have a love for. Honestly, I never knew I'd get so much enjoyment out of ivory keys and six strings. However, I am rather sad that there's no venues of music, and hardly anyone that shares my passion for music, in this town I live in.

    Er... well, that's it really. Hey there, people of the forum. I am Ted. See my text.

    That's all right, Ted. Hetroclite isn't my real name either. Anyhoo, welcome to the forums & I hope things work out for you.

    Hullo Ted, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Now why am I thinking of a creepy automaton portrayed by John Ritter?

    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 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!
