    Whats up? Im new

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by eamjr, Oct 1, 2007.

    Hey whats up board? I would like to introduce myself (for those who care) I am originally from Texas, but currently I am in Balad, Iraq serving with the 144 Infantry and the 101st. In my free time I enjoy reading and I am currently writing my Horror Short Story. I enjoy writing a lot, im just not sure if im good or not lol. So I thought I would come to this site and try to sharpen my skills, and learn from other writers.

    Hello eamjr, 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!

    Hey E. How long have you been in Bagdad? Have you posted any pieces on here yet? I actually just joined this forum today and, like you, am trying to hone my skills by bouncing my ideas off of the group. Good luck with your story - I always love a good horror tale.

    Take care.
