    My name is RosyBug and I like to write and read ;]
    I am at present trying to write a novel, not going very consistently, but I'm getting there! I joined about two weeks ago, but instantaneously forgot. I don't know anyone here, but I do enjoy making friends.
    I have three favourite authors: Robin Hobb, Anne MCcAffrey and Stephenie Meyer. My favourite book at the moment - it's sure to change within a week - is The Host, by Stephenie Meyer.
    I love music. Actually love, and not just one type.

    Hopes and Dreams,

    Hey RosyBug! Welcome to the WF!

    Its kind of hard to see what you've written. (Perhaps increase the font a bit)
    If you are ever stuck, please feel free to post 'some' of your novel and perhaps myself or other members wll review/critique. Other than that, I am looking forward to see your work.

    Nice to meet you!
    - Jack

    Hello RosyBug, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    You might want to stick with the default font, unless you WANT to induce eyestrain. :)

    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 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.

    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!
