View Full Version : Hi there

01-21-2011, 03:55 PM
This is my first ever post on a forum/message board. And my first ever intro into a community of writers....scary stuff for me. So, just wanted to say hi, this forum looks great, and I hope that I can learn lots and help along with the rest of you.
Oh, a bit about me. Well, I've drafted two novels and now need to type, edit and do all the really hard stuff. Need to know more about the process and people I should and shouldn't be contacting. And, of course, getting critiques from people who aren't related to me:)
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello to you, and welcome to the forums.

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, (50 posts), 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.

Welcome. Good luck polishing those novels.

Welcome from another newbie! There is so much good advice floating around these boards; I just started looking around this week, and so far my favorite thing is reading forums for genres I don't even write. It's fascinating to see what problems/issues/questions are prompted.

good luck in your writings

The size of this forum can be a little intimidating I must admit, and I have been to other forums (not of the writing kind however). It may take a bit or two to get acquainted with everything here.

Oh yes, welcome! :D
