    Hey Hey Hey :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by alyssemarie, Jun 1, 2008.

    Hello everyone :)

    My name is Alysse I'm here because I HATE writing. Haha :p
    Nah, I love to write and I've been doing so for as long as I can remember. However, I haven't written in so long, simply for lack of time. But, I joined this forum hoping to rekindle my passion for writing!

    Just figured I would drop in and introduce myself.. so a big HELLO to everyone! :)

    Hello Alysse, 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, 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 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!
