    hallo everyone

    It's quite sometime i was join writingforums.org, but since there was so many things i faced lately, i haven't made any post.

    English is not my main language so that i still have problem with grammar, spelling, lack of vocabulary and so on.

    I hope by joining this forum i can improve my english and my writing skills.

    And for moderators, few months ago i have joined writingforum under username : rahmadsandzz but there's problem with my account so please delete my old account. If this request can't be do, would you mind tell me how to delete my old account? because it's against the rule to have double accounts, thankyou.

    Hello Rahmad, Welcome back to the Writing Forums.

    I've locked out your other account now.

    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.

    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!
