I've never been good at these things so I'll make it quick:
Welcome to the forum Mr Sci Fi.
Hello all. I'm Ender (well, that's the alias I'm choosing to use at any rate).
Hello Mr Sci Fi, 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!
Thank you for the warm reception.
Its always good to see fresh faces.
Thank you, I'm glad to be here.
Welcome to the forums. I hope you find what you're looking for here If you have any questions then give us a shout.
Welcome to the site! I take it you write sci-fi?
Nice avatar, by the way.
I try to, but not very well. ;-)
Thanks. "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?" is one of my favorite books.
Thank you! I'm sure I will.
Hi there Mr. Sci Fi from a WF.com member
Hello, Shinn. Good to see a familiar face.
Welcome. I've been meaning to read some Philip K Dick. My room mate constantly sings his praises, and I've heard that he's quite good from many other people too. One of these days I'll have to sit down and read that book.
Well he's definitely not for everybody. But I will recommend his short story collection, "The Philip K. Dick Reader." There are a lot of familiar stories in that one, "The Minority Report, "Scanners," etc."
