    Trying to think of an original way to say, "hi"

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Chris, Sep 26, 2007.

    So, the short version is this:

    I'm 21, married with a one year old son. I'm a member of the U.S. Air Force, moderatley fluent in Mandarin Chinese, and I enjoy reading mostly action/adventure novels (Clancy, for instance) and some in the fantasy genre, such as the Inheritance books and Harry Potter.

    I have dabbled in creative writing before, but I only recently began writing a little more seriously. I enjoy writing and it's currently just a hobby, as I can only write in my spare time. I'm currently working on my first novel.

    Chris

    Welcome to the Writing forums. You sound like a to-be Hulls. Now, you don't know who he is, so never mind. Just feel at rest.

    Here's a basic welcome from all of us. It should be obvious, but incase 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 Cotnests, 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 and welcome to the forum. I hope that you are enjoying your stay with us and that you decide to stick around.
    The forum has plenty to offer and a lot of things to get involved with. We have a lot of contests running, two short story ones and a poetry one so I hope that you get involved with them and join in. They certainly help with expanding your writing skills I find.
    Anyway it is lovely to have you on board and I look forward to seeing you around the boards in the very near future.

    Hello Chris, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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!
