    Haha, quality.

    I don't really care about the thread direction, I just seen an opportunity to use the image, and pounced on it.

    Shame on me.

    We normally use pics like this.

    Hey, I'm back after, like, months! Almost a year even!

    If there are horrible typos, see the following.

    I'm conflicted. On the one hand, all this time could be used writing. On the other hand, I feel visiting AW has really helped me with my craft.
    "A work of art is useless as a flower is useless. A flower blossoms for its own joy. We gain a moment of joy by looking at it. That is all that is to be said about our relations to flowers. Of course man may sell the flower, and so make it useful to him, but this has nothing to do with the flower. It is not part of its essence. It is accidental. It is a misuse."

    Quality over quantity. AW helps to improve quality of the craft.

    I don't see any problem, as long as you write a little...

    I have to check every 15 minutes or less. Otherwise, I won't know what scarletpeaches thinks of me. If at all.
    I still poop rainbows.

    Exactly. People IRL are supportive, but hanging out here is kind of like ... well, hanging out at the office water cooler. Only it's more like "The Office" than the office.

    I find that this place reaffirms my interest in the craft day after day, reminding me that I really do want to do this. Associating with others who unabashedly call themselves writers makes me more confident in doing so myself. And hopefully, when I get the balls, I'll get some valuable feedback on my work.

    But yeah, just like at work, you also spend some time playing Tetris or gossiping with the person in the office next to you or trying to find an excuse for a two hour lunch.

    If I don't check in every ten minutes or so, I totally lose the people I'm stalking.

    Practically, yes.

    AW has helped my writing a hell of a lot. Possibly more so than the books on writing I have. It rocks.

    She radiates her animosity in the ultraviolet. Lie with your eyes closed in a darkened room and you'll see obscenities on the inside of your eyelids.

    Oh all right, all right. If I promise to think of you for at least thirty seconds a day, will you stop crying?

    I have to check AW constantly, even when I'm writing. Sadly, when I'm in Japan, AW is the majority of my social life (besides those I speak to on MSN).

    That, and I have to check to see if Scarletpeaches has said anything I need to agree with because if I don't, she'll hurt me.
