View Full Version : I've been lurking for a while...

...and have finally "stepped up to the plate."

This is my first post here, and I just wanted to say a quick "hello." I'm an editor (mostly academic stuff and potential fiction) and a writer (art historical--but I haven't written in a while, but I'm planning to change that). I'm a wahm with a 7-month old (our first child) so time is at a premium (hence my previous status as a lurker). Now that our DC is more self-entertainable and takes longer naps, I'm starting to dust the cobwebs off of the writing instruments and laptop, especially as my brain needs to do something other than worry about parenting styles and poopy diapers. LOL

Good afternoon, Wordsmith! It's good to meet you. I hope you like the forums.

If you're an editor, you might find some good stuff in the 'Ask The Editor' forum near the bottom of the main board list.

Also, might I suggest to you the 'Learn Writing With Uncle Jim' thread? Whether you're a newbie writer or an experienced writer, I am sure you will find some good information within the thread, as well as others within the 'Writing Novels' forum.

In any case, it is good to have you here, and welcome to the Water Cooler.

Hi, wordsmith! You can safely relax here-- this is a poopy-diaper-free zone. Glad to meet you.

Hi Wordsmith. Welcome to AW. You get to talk to grownups here, too. Well, mostly. Sometimes we don't behave as though we're mature, but we are. We really are :)
