View Full Version : Newbie!

Hi everyone, I'm Kate. I used to write when I was younger, got started on my first novel, and then started the upper level courses in college and suddenly I didn't have time to write anymore. Now that I have graduated I would like to get back to writing but I seem to be suffering from writer's block, so I figured it was time to find myself a writer's community and work through this writer's block.

Also feel free to check out my book review blog!

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. After you post 50 posts you can use the SYW areas to get help there. The password for some of the areas is…..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.

Writers block? Help from here? Wrong place for that. ;) I kid, I kid. Welcome to the forums, this place is perfect and you probably won't find too many other places better to help and assist you.

Welcome to the forum. I suspect a quick search of 'writer's block' will pull up quite a few posts with suggestions on taming the wretched beast.
