    Super Fresh Writer here...

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Daniel Lynn, Apr 8, 2009.

    Hello there,

    I am Daniel Tomlinson, but I prefer spelling my surname 'Tomlynnson'.

    I have Aspergers Syndrome, and am aged 14, but been wanting to write for quite some time.

    I like to write, I used to write short stories in my primary school years.

    I'm very talkative and can have a laugh, but yes I can be touchy now and again, but I become worried over something stupid.

    I think alot, my imagination is deep and I believe the government are hiding alot from us and are very biased towards particular people, but that's just how opinionated I am.

    I start my GCSEs next year, so hopefully you guys could help me out some along the way when I try to create a story here.

    Looking forward to my stay.

    Hello Daniel, 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!

    Hi and welcome! :)
    My father had Aspergers which was undiagnosed while I was growing up, so I understand it a little. Look forward to seeing your work.
