It might look intimidating at first glance, but I assure you we are all friendly.

Why not have a look at the FAQ; it got some useful information to help you get used to the site.

Welcome to Writer's Beat, swissroll. *waves*

Why not tell us a little about yourself, for instance what you enjoy writing, have you been writing long, that sort of thing.

Meanwhile, if you are intimidated by the size of the forum - don't be! You'll soon see the forums are sorted into groups. The first (Writer's Beat) is all the business stuff, announcements, contests, feedback and that sort of thing. The second section (Writer's Beat Quarterly) is for the e-zine. You can download the current issue there, or even some of the previous ones. The Write Here section is where we post our work for others to read and comment on. Writing Craft is for tips, advice, questions, and such, and even has a Reference Room where the staff post useful articles on grammar, style and so on. General Discussion is where we go to chat about anything and everything, or just place games. And the Billboard is for advertisements.

So have an explore and join in. You'll find that people here are pretty friendly and seldom devour newbies.

Glad to help. Besides, I know what it's like when you join a new forum. Sometimes the number of sub-forums can truly be daunting.

Heya swissroll.

Don't be alarmed that this site looks big. It's divided into a lot of categories, so you can easily find what you are looking for. What I did when I joined was look at each category and stick to those that interest me. Suddenly the forum was a lot smaller.

And don't be afraid to ask if there are anything you wonder about. The people here might be a bit insane, but they all mean it well.

So just sit down, have a and enjoy.

I don’t know about milk, but will a hot chocolate do?

The Nordic Chicken being a prime example

*sternly shakes finger* That is not what we meant when we said "Introduce yourself; we're all writers here, nothing to hide!" in the description there!

If you have any questions that are too embarrassing to be posted in public, message a member of staff! We'll get back to you when we're finished giggling over it. Also message us with complaints, because that'll give us time to surreptitiously off you before you can make any trouble.

Welcome!

We could check? Here's a few simple questions for you.

1. Do you have a sense of humor?
2. That other people understand?
3. You enjoy making fun of people in a non-insulting way?
4. You are a writer?

If yes to at least one, you fit in.

Um... you can't make up your own rules to go with your personality, and then use that to decide you fit in. But no worries, have a and enjoy the ride.
