Hello gtlovell, Welcome to the Writing Forums.
If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably dive in 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.
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 on this site, therefore, is a true workshop, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.
Enjoy your swim here, and have fun!
Welcome to our site! I hope you like it here, and care to share your talent with us.
A happy belated welcome and I hope that you're settling in alright.
