    Happy to meet you all!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Old Fashioned Girl, Dec 29, 2019.

    Hello everyone.

    I am a sporadically-productive-do-it-for-fun writer who likes to dabble in fiction, nonfiction, and occasionally poetry (if I feel like living dangerously). I participated in an online writing community similar to this a few years back and really enjoyed giving and receiving feedback. This seems like a good bunch of people, and I look forward to getting to know you all.

    Hi Old Fashioned Girl

    I’m one of the forum moderators and I want to welcome you to the forum.

 I'm Old Fashioned too. Well, no, that's not exactly true. I am actually OLD...unfashionably so....

    Unfortunately, it’s that ‘time of the year’ and I’m falling badly behind on my forum duties, including writing personal welcomes to all the new members, which is what I normally like to do. So please forgive me if this ‘welcome’ is general, not personal. Consider it a Christmas form letter from a Forum mod!

    Just to keep you on track or get you on track if you’re just starting out here …please take the time to read these two links. They help to get you oriented, and also give you a notion of how we operate here.

New Member Quick Start


Forum Rules


If you want a quick way to explore the forum offerings, here is a great link below, and I use it often myself. It’s not a series of Frequently Asked Questions, but is, rather, a site map with links.


    If you have any problems getting settled, don’t hesitate to ‘start a conversation’ with me, and I’ll do my best to help. (Just click on my owl avatar and follow the signs.)


Anyway, take your time, settle in, participate in any threads that draw your interest. Giving critiques in the Workshop section is much appreciated by our members, and is also a requirement if you want to post your own work for feedback. So might as well get a head start there.

    Our contests are also open to new members, both for entry and for voting. So you might want to check these out as well.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy yourself, and I’ll see you around the threads. Probably AFTER the holidays are over!

    Cheers, Jan

    Hi old fashioned girl!
    I never knew how to phrase my writing style perfectly, until I read this:
    And still, what I am writing is a huge epic fantasy:superlaugh:...
    Psyched to read your stuff!

    Hey, Girl! Hope it doesn't take long for you to feel just as at home as your previous writing group.

    Hey, I’m also new and I write mostly for fun, too. So there are two things we have in common :D

    Let’s have fun together.
