View Full Version : Hello All!

I'm new here, but not really. I used to belong along time ago under a different name, then I kind of fell off the edge of the Earth for a spell while I got my novel published, then re-written and re-published as Part I of a trilogy.
I missed the fine chats and great information I used to get here, so now I'm back, with self-imposed time limits in place, so I don't spend to much time yacking and not enough time clacking (the keyboard).
I'm an author/freelance writer from South Jersey. I know some of youse guys are from my neck of the woods!

Welcome to AW!
Please read about AW basics here in the Newbie Guide (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66315)! Many questions about using this software can be found in the FAQ's menu in the handy blue bar at the 'top' of this page. Also handy for first-time users is the common acronym list (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21648). This helps you identify those mystifying abbreviations.
*Critiques* So many new members ask about having work critiqued! They should first read the 50 Post rule (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=199915). But when it comes to actually posting writing in the Share Your Work (SYW) area, this thread (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66193) addresses many first time questions, while this one covers
most common problems (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1239766&postcount=193). found in SYW posts. *Worth reading no matter how long you have been here!*
AW is a community built on the foundations of respecting your fellow writer and helping each other, it's the basic building blocks of how AW works.
Welcome to our community!
