Hello.

I think this is only my second-ever New-Guy-Introducing-Himself forum post ever. Never know what to say, I usually don't bother.

I used to write quite a bit up until middle school. For various (large) reasons, I put it all aside for years. Last year I tried NaNoWriMo and pulled a HUGE 530 words. I've since come up with far too many ideas for stories to ever write, and refined some ideas for said DOA story. I'm going through NaNo again, this time outlining and trying to stay realistic. I'm actually pretty excited as the story is finally coming together in my mind.

Anyhow, you're a varied and impressive group here, and I hope to both learn from you and maybe even pitch in something every now and again. Thanks for having me.

Aaaaand my spell-check seems to be broken in this browser for the time being, so please forgive if I missed something.

There. How was that?

I give it a 9.4 - good beat, and I can dance to it. Plus bonus points for the username - concise, descriptive, witty, original without seeming contrived. Nice twist to the user title as well!

Welcome aboard!

You know, if you had of added an 'er' to that username of yours it would have added an entire different meaning :D
Welcome :hi:

Greetings and welcome to the watercooler :welcome:

Take a wander around the various forums, there's lots to see and lots to learn, and even some fun threads too. Come along and pop on over to the Traditional Irish Pub (at the top of the Newbie forum) and say hi, there's plenty of friendly faces that you can chat with and lots of banter. There's also the Question of the Day threads at the top of the Newbie forum where you can answer random questions.

Don't forget to read the newbie guide (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66315), and if you want to know what all the buttons mean check out this thread. (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28185)

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. A word to the wise, it would be a good idea to participate first in helping others before you think about posting your own work. After you have been around here for awhile, then post something of your own for help. Good luck.

poetinahat: Thanks very much! I worked hard on it!

MichaelLetters: Indeed. I've actually slipped into the legions of the delusional, and I'm voting this year.

BRDurkin: Thanks! I shall have to return.

brainstorm77/Nickie/jvc/regdog/thehairymob: Thanks!

cooeedownunder: Only possibly with LOTS of Jager . . .

CACTUSWENDY: Lightly salted, lightly buttered. And thanks for the tip. I had assumed it was the opposite. I shall poke my nose in there.

The forum is more a food fight in a cafeteria. You'r not fodder, just another food flinger. :)
