View Full Version : Hello All!

Hi Everybody,
I've been a writer my whole life, but not very successfully. I've started many, many projects, but my internal editor always sabatoged me. This last year, I started to overcome that issue with the help of Nanowrimo and writing my blog (http://goalsethigh.blogspot.com). I also recently joined Constant Content and have started submitting articles. The articles have been accepted and that has given me a little more confidence in my grammar (don't laugh if I'm flubbing it up here, I rewrite like four times there).

I am a bartender by trade, but I'm home on disability because of a high-risk pregnancy. Bad for money, but great for writing.

So, I keep seeing AW pop up everywhere on blogs that I like to read. You don't have to hit me over the head with a brick. Apparently, this place rocks and I'm missing out. Anyway, I'm here to learn and hopefully make some new friends.

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.

Hi bclement412 - so your birthstone is the diamond, nice. I was born in Sept, so I get Sapphires. I used to wear the two stones together and thought I was being so clever, ha ha.

Cactuswendy - thanks for the info and welcome. Btw, I like my popcorn layered with butter. Mmmmmm, butter.

Hahah. Yeah it's a diamond. Sapphire is actually my favorite gem, but diamond is a close second :D

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. Today is the first day that I've woken up and not felt like I was going to puke...in about a month. That is a great start to the day.
