    Hiya fellas...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Manolius, Mar 27, 2009.

    happily salute everybody on this site. :)

    Well, what is there to know.
    I am, like many around here, just one of the many middle children in history, with no place or purpose (Not to offend anybody by the way).
    My real name is not Manolius, just my artistic name, I'm 20 Years old and currently I'm living in the US. I am by no means a respectable or published writer, but I've been writing for a couple of years, almost done with my first fiction novel (hoping that I can get It published sooner or later). Most of my writing has gone towards to my band; being the singer I do most of it, which i really love to; but mostly I've been reading and reading a lot.

    Favourite author is Chuck Palahniuk and favourite book is Choke.
    It's really kool to find a place just like the one I was looking for. It's really nice to have a board that feels like home, in a strange-rewarding kinda way.
    I am a really open person, feel free to talk to me, ask questions or whatever you feel like doing.
    All I can say it's really awesome to be here and I know I will meet some really nice, smart and interesting people. Looking forward to all that comes.
    See you around :)

    Hello Manolius, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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!
