    Hello! :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Evita, Feb 21, 2011.

    Ask me to describe myself orally
    I'll say I'm mean and weard and shy
    On paper, wondering, “Who am I?”
    All will come out so honestly

    Everything that's kept in my memory
    Every single bit of my History
    Now be ready, relax yourself
    You will find out about myself

    I might think nothing's ever gonna be right
    That there'll never be a single light
    I could say I've been through hard times
    Everybody would have the same thoughts than mines

    I love to live, I hate to sleep
    There are some dreams I'll have to sweep
    I can never stay still too long
    But so still is often my tongue

    What could I say, what can I add?
    The thought of me would make you mad
    I'm just a girl, lost in this world

    Questioning, like everybody else, who the hell I am

    My name is Ève and I live in Canada. I'm a regular student and I study languages: French, English, Spanish and German. My English isn't even perfect, but I love to practice it! I've been writing my whole life, which in fact isn't that much :D
    I write just for fun, and I hope to have fun here :)

    Hello Ève, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Please read How to Use the Writing Workshop before you post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on 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.

    Also, be aware that posting a piece of writing on any public site, including this one, will greatly diminish your chances of selling it for publication. Removing the writing later does not alter that fact - once posted, it is irreversibly considered published. So do not post anything more than a small excerpt of any piece you are planning to submit for publication.

    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 Writing Workshop, 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 Writing Workshop, 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 Writing Workshop 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 Writing Workshop forum). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. 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 the RPG forum for improvisational fiction. Also try 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!
