    Token introduction thread:

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Zetta, Oct 24, 2007.

    Oi--I'm Zetta, short for Rosetta's Quill, an old penname of mine.

    No, I'm not a published author or anything but it's a given that I like to write, eh? I mean, why else would I join these forums?

    Anyway, yada-yada-yada... what else am I supposed to say?

    Oh: I'll try to be mature :p.

    So, uh, yeah. That's me!

    Welcome Zetta! Not everyone is a total intro freak. I had a pretty boring one, but no, you have a nice way of introduction, so yeah, welcome. See, I'm can't even welcome people. *sigh*. But here's a shot at it.

    Here's a basic welcome from all of us. It should be obvious, but in case it isn't, let me explain. The Writing Problems Area is exclusively where opinions on different ways to write, blockages in writing styles and similar problems can be discussed. In the Review Rom, you can get critical appreciation and/or analysis of your written material. Behold, you must first review two pieces of writing before posting your own. This is ensure the pieces are evaluated to the most. Other than this, we have Writing Contests, weekly and monthly, where you can submit your writing. We also have Word games, Book Discussion and so on, classified under Community interaction. It may interest you if you're just hanging around.

    adamant has been kind enough to put many of the things I have mentioned or missed out on in one comprehensive place. If you want to check it out, see the Newbie Packets:
    Noobie Packets! - Writing Forums

    Enjoy it here, and don't feel shy to ask for help. We are all here to teach and learn in a mutual environment. And we hope you can do the same.

    Regards and Best Wishes!

    Hello Zetta, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Maturity is optional, as long as the immaturity doesn't squash anyone's toes. :)

    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.

    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!
