I found this forum using a google search looking for Literary Agents. I 'm a Police Officer in the midst of writing my memoirs. I'll be checking in often doing research. This board is a wealth of knowledge.

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.

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 Mack! I bet you have some pretty interesting stories to tell. Looking forward to seeing you around the cooler! :)

Hiya, Mack. You're far from our only cop, although I don't think the others (that I know of) are writing memoirs, so it's brother officers rather than competitors. It's our pleasure to have you join us.

Since your career is one of interest to many writers, I hope you will consider becoming one of the people who list their specialties or expertise and offers to answer writing questions as they arise. No pressure, just something to consider.

Maryn, shaking your hand and offering muffins

Also, you can go to this thread (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10463) and post what your expertise is. Then if people are in need of such an expert, they can get in touch with you :)

11-30-2010, 02:52 PM
I made the post. Thanks for the link.

11-30-2010, 08:59 PM
And thank you for being generous with your time and knowledge. Damn, maybe I should take up that thriller again...

Maryn, who abandoned one which could have used your advice (and a whole lot more help)

Hiya, Mack. I'm a fellow noob to these forums as well. Once upon a time I worked for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police way up north.
