Here is the text of the greeting:
Hello, [[troper]]. Welcome to Writer's Block.As you might guess from the name, Writer's Block is TV Trope's hangout for fiction writers. This sub-forum can be used to ask questions, discuss writing craft, request or do critiques, post parts of your story, or it can used as a procrastination tool. Your choice. If you haven't already, introduce yourself in Writer's Block Daily. This thread is the sub-forum's main hub, where you can post updates concerning your writing, talk about writing, or go off on minor derails.Ask short questions at Random Questions or the General Writer's Block thread.Want a critique? Post part (or all) of your story in the Troper Critique Club. Want a beta reader? Enlist in Uncle Drunkie's Writer/Critic Dating Service.If you want to take your character on a test drive, join the latest Character Development Thread. Just drop in, and state your intention to join in the discussion thread.Contests are held every few months. You write a short story centered around a theme, and a group of volunteer judges score the entries. Prize? Bragging rights.Any questions? Don't be afraid to ask. Again, welcome to Writer's Block. Keep on writing!
