    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Genesister, May 31, 2008.

    I'm looking to imrpove my writing, but I wouldn't mind socializing (or anti-socializing, if you prefer) as well. Music brings me more joy in life than almost anything else. If you're enthusiastic about it too, I'd like to share interests with you. Maybe I'll find a new artist I can enjoy.

    I'm not very good at introductions and don't care enough to keep trrying to make myself seem extraverted, so I'm done.

    Hello Genesister, 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. 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!
