    Hey guys!

    okay i suck at these but..

    my name is Samantha (Sami)

    i dont even know how i found this site but im glad i did.

    I'm a huge fan of writing.
    i really want to get published one day.
    i've been told since i was about 6 that i was an amazing writer...i dont believe them. i guess i think I'm okay.

    I'm obsessed with all types of art. my favorites are fan Fiction writing, nature photography, survival horror games, tattoos, animie, rock music, ect.

    i love silent hill. (a pretty popular survival horror game) its my influence for a lot of the things i write about. at the moment im writing a fan fiction about it as practice.

    I SUCK AT Grammar. my big thing is trying to learn proper grammar...

    I'm an armature photographer. i guess if you want you can check out my deviant art XD

    peace, love, and horror-

    Hello Sami, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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.

    Also, be aware that posting a piece of writing on any public site, including this one, will greatly diminish your chances of selling it for publication. Removing the writing later does not alter that fact - once posted, it is irreversibly considered published. So do not post anything more than a small excerpt of any piece you are planning to submit for publication.

    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 constructive critique as a vital 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). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. 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!

    Hello Sami, Welcome to the forums.

    I loooove Silent Hill, too. The first time I ever played, I was hooked and went out and bought the remainder of the series. No, I am not a big gamer, but I do love those.

    Have fun here...it's got some pretty cool members. ;)

    Didn't you mean grammar help? :p

    Well Allie, I suggest that you take a breeze through this forum. There are already a lot of questions there that have been answered, but if you have your own, feel free to post a new thread.
