    Hi

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by LK306, Apr 4, 2008.

    My name is Lynn and I like to write, like everyone else here (I assume). I found this site yesterday and jumped right in. Already I have posted a couple of reviews and one short story, but I think I'm off to a shaky start. I admit I'm too sensitive (I am working on that). But, I suppose I can only learn from this experience. What does everyone else think? Have a good day and see you around the boards.

    The best way to learn is to try. :) Failure is a success. Etcetera, Etcetera. lol

    Sorry if I came off as fastidious when I reviewed your story. I can really sound that way sometimes, unintentionally..

    Hello Lynn, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    I saw your work shortly after you posted it, and although I didn't have time to look at it in depth, what I saw looked promising.

    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!

    Thanks for the nice welcome. I'll keep at it and I'm sure I'll get the hang of it.

    hello and welcome to the forum
    I hope that you have a most wonderful time here with all of us and don't worry, you will at some point come face to face with the forum crazies, but they don't bite at all, so you are pretty safe I guess. If they do bite....hmmm....
    have fun and see you around the boards anyways....
