    Oh good you followed, I started to worry,
    I cant stay for long, so I'll try and be brief.

    My name is Sean, and I live in on my own,
    My place is in Malvern, and on me its grown!
    I'm just twenty two and working full time,
    A plumber by trade - I love the sun shine!

    Times up for now, I'm afraid I must go,
    It would be great, for you to say hello

    Welcome, Sean plumber
    to this writing place
    wake poems from slumbers
    pull stories from space.

    The people you'll meet here
    are crazy, but kind
    after all, sane writers
    are quite a rare find.

    This place is a treasure,
    so enjoy your stay
    and hopefully my welcome
    won't scare you away! :p

    Hello Sean, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    Greetings, good sir, I hope you enjoy
    our writing community which you will employ
    to better your writing and find those of like mind
    we always attempt to be honest yet kind

    we'll rip into your writing with surgical steel
    but the writer we'll spare; no insult shall he feel.

    Please read How to Use the Review Room before you post there. Posting your own writing for people to comment on 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.

    Also, be aware that posting a piece of writing on any public site, including this one, will greatly diminish your chances of selling it for publication. Removing the writing later does not alter that fact - once posted, it is irreversibly considered published. So do not post anything more than a small excerpt of any piece you are planning to submit for publication.

    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 constructive critique as a vital 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). Also, please use the same thread for all revisions and additional excerpts from the same piece of writing. 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!

    Thumbs up! A good rhyme. :)

    I'm not very good at making rhyme
    And right now I don't have the time,
    Indeed, my rhyme is a skill obsolete
    So I shall keep this welcome sweet:

    (N.B. Well, as you can see, my rhyme obviously isn't obsolete but it's a new word for me and it rhymed with sweet so yeah...)
