    Here I am!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by LadyJustin, Feb 28, 2008.

    Hello everyone!
    I love writing, and finally decided to get serious about it. I am comfortable with short stories which I often run in various club newsletters ... but I finally decided to tackle a BIG one ... a novel! I hope to make many new friends here. I browsed through the forums a bit, and you people seem great!

    Hello Chris, 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!

    Welcome to the forums! I see that Cogito has already explained the basics, but if you have any questions give us a shout. I look forward to seeing more of you about the forums soon :)
