Welcome txtightline, I hope you enjoy the site.

The shallow end is right down the bottom - called the coffee shop - not that the inhabitants of the coffee shop are shallow, you understand; it's just the easiest place to climb in.

Of course, if you are really brave, you could just jump into one of the review sections - Work, script or poetry.  You won't find too many lions in there, just a bunch of helpful encouraging people.

On the other hand, you could  just wander around for the next few weeks until you meet some people you think you would like to get to know - hopefully, that's most of us  ;D
If I always do what I always did, I'll always get what I always got.

Hello Txtightline.  As to how this site works, roam around a bit, click here and click there, you'll soon get the hang of it I believe.  It's well laid out and you'll soon see the logic behind it. 

I look forward to seeing you and your work around the boards.

Good writing,
Alice

Hi txlightline

Welcome.

THis site is really easy to navigate.  I once joined a forum that was so confusing that I didn't even make a posting before I quit the site - life's too short.

This site is a breeze to navigate, and like the advice already given, just click around on the different topics and you'll soon find it easy.  There's lots of word games going on too if you like quick posts.

Enjoy
