Hello Water Cooler Community,

My name is Yvonne and I joined this community yesterday evening instead of ironing another basket of shirts. Good choice, huh?!

I have a day job, but am always on the look-out to discover the plan B in order to make writing a full-time occupation and not just an addiction that gets me into hot water with the family :Shrug:. Wait and see.

So far I have written a ton of stuff, but nothing published yet. The NaNoWriMo 2010 challenge provided me with the necessary strangle-hold to get my first novel written from beginning to end. Now, if I could just get it all polished up. Is anyone else an NaNoWriMo-ite?

My main interest is fiction writing. Though I do puzzle around with the memoire and diary genres.

My favorites author list comprises Margaret Atwood, Mikhail Bulgakov,Patricia Highsmith, Hans Fallada,L.Tolstoi, and many others.

Looking forward to future exchanges in this community.
That's about it for now.
Kind Regards,
Yvonne

NaNoWriMo was what really hooked me, waaaay back in 2001 (-:

The Master and Margarita is one of my favorite books.

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.
