    hello everybooody :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by medioxcore, Apr 13, 2009.

    my name is tyler.

    nice to meet you :)

    unless i am writing something formal, i don't capitalize anything. unless it's a reference to an uncommon something-or-other. then i will capitalize it, just so i don't lose the unfamiliar.

    i love music and listen to an ungodly amount of it.

    i also love to paint on things not typically seen as canvas- things i can get in trouble for painting on.

    i work for a company that provides aid to people living with developmental disabilities, and spend 130 hours a pay period (give or take a few) telling a 350 pound man with an eating disorder that six sandwiches for lunch is three too many.

    consequently, my job also involves a lot of time spent ducking TVs and other heavy objects.

    it's 4am and i have a meeting tomorrow morning.. er. in a few hours.



    it's 4am. i'm spent. if you've made it this far, thank you for indulging me :)

    guess i'll be seeing you around the forums.

    Hello Tyler, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Sounds like required equipment for your job include a crash helmet and track shoes.

    Posting your own work should not be among the very first things you do here. It is worth taking the time 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 constructive critique as a vital 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!

    Hi and welcome to the site. The lack of capitalization *could* get annoying, but I think it'll be fine. Hope to see you around!
