Welcome to AW. Hope you enjoy your stay with us.
How do you like your popcorn?

If you go to the bottom of the page to the ‘forum jump’ you can scroll down and find all the areas of this place. Most of the SYW areas require the password of ….vista. Good luck.

Welcome to AW! I mostly write fantasy and such, but I have written a sitcom or two as well, which is why I mostly join this site was to find out how to get it in the right hands! This site is great though and enjoying my stay. Hope you enjoy yours as well!

Hi and Welcome!!

You should take some time to read through the Newbie Forum stickies.

Also try this thread:

Uncle Jim talks about being disciplined about writing; setting aside time whether you feel like it or not. I am struggling with that myself, but working on making it a part of my routine.

After awhile you will find all the helpful threads if you just click around. There's info on format, genres, queries, and there are also social group for writers with similar ages and lifestyles. Here are some good links:
