It is. Really. I wouldn't lie about that.

I'm not so good about reading books all that much lately, but I'm trying. I'm in the middle of two at the moment. I read a lot of different things online, but have gotten out of the blog reading habit lately. I'll make an effort to pick that one back up since AW is full of some very impressive bloggers.

I live in a tourist destination in a very touristy locale and am fond of wandering my neighborhood and talking to strangers. And taking notes on them for use later in my writing. Granted, they don't know that bit or I daresay they wouldn't be so friendly to me. Heh.

I'm glad to be here. I look forward to making new acquaintances and some new friends.

:welcome: to you.

Glad you joined AW. But beware...IT'S ADDICTIVE!!!

I to am in the middle of two books, Spellbound by Margit Sandemo, and Human Traces by Sebastian Faulkes. Both very different, but brilliant.

I wish you luck with your writing.

Thanks, alleycat and JenUK24! It's always a bit skeery dipping a toe in a new pond. You're never quite sure if something will give you a nip. :eek:

Only joking, AW is great and everyone is real nice and always so willing to help.

Don't worry, we don't eat newbies. Well, unless they're barbecued . . . you know us Tennesseans will eat anything barbecued. ;-)

Writing is a drug of choice for all of us, and this will be your new addiction.

But it's a good one, and you'll find lots of great resources and a supportive community of like-minded people.

Enjoy!

I'm in the middle of two books also, funnily enough. Ivan's War and Sleeping with the Devil: How Washington Sold Our Soul for Saudi Crude: Robert Baer.

I'm one book at a time, myself, probably because I'd get them intermingled in my aging brain. But I read most of them in a few days. Welcome to AW!

My drug of choice also, much less side-effects than those of clandestine quality.
Welcome aboard! ~

Enjoy the site! Reading many of the helpful threads is like reading a book. But, well worth the time.

:roll:RJV, I can't decide if I prefer ascend on diamonds or no sandman discoed. Considering my current financial state, I think I'll have to go with diamonds over disco. Makes me think I need to take up poker . . .

Anyhoo, thanks EVERYONE for the kind welcome. I think I'm gonna like it here. :Sun:

Oh boy, do I know what you mean about writing... I am entirely addicted. I hadn't really done any writing in at least five years (at least non-academic writing, damn those college papers!), but recently the internet has kicked me off the writing and I'm back with my past addiction of the written word...
