    Take me to your leader!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Chudz, Jul 20, 2008.

    An amorphous mass of electrons shambles toward the virtual podium. Once there, it reorganizes itself into a vaguely humanoid shape, and taps three times on the live microphone. Tap . . . tap . . . tap.

    "Testing . . . testing . . . testing,” it says in a deliberate, electronically-tinged manner. Then it waits for the empty room to quiet—as if empty rooms actually needed to quiet.

    “Greetings, I am Chudz. And I have arrived here after many twists and turns through the infrastructure that makes up the Interwebz. I am in search of a place that will help me improve my writing and offer some semblance of community. For no Chudz is an island!” Once it is done speaking, the form dissipates, leaving a trace of ozone in the air.



    Chudz.

    Hello Chudz, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Beware of stray magnetic fields--they raise hob with electrical energy.

    Posting your own work should not be the very first thing you do here. It is really worthwhile 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.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    I'm trying to get my head around this whole review thing, by reading the ones in the short story section. (I've only given feedback a handful of times, at present.) Once I feel more comfortable, I'll jump on in.
