    Good Evening

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by desm, Mar 24, 2008.

    Hi, I'm Des!
    I'm also seventeen years old and from the UK.
    I enjoy reading, and try to vary the genres and authors I read. I also enjoy writing, although I don't do it enough. In the past I've always found it easy to start, but harder to finish, and that's something I intend to improve.

    Hello Des, 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!

    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!
