    Vasafaxa saying hello.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by vasafaxa, Jun 17, 2008.

    Hi my name is Vasafaxa. I'm a 17 year old bundle of ambition and meta-thought. I love to write, but I also love to sing. I'm a pretty serious singer and I'll be off in Tanglewood for six weeks this summer which is why this is also a Hello-Goodybe moment. My I love science fiction and fanatasy, but I love to write more than read. This principle holds for almost everything in my life, which leads to making a lot of mistakes but enjoying them very much. Nice to meet you too.

    Hello Vasafaxa, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile 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.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Hi - welcome to WF!
    I can't sing to save my life. :) I'm probably the biggest musical failiure on the face of the Earth! Lol!
    Anyway, enjoy!
