    New to Forums, Hooray!

    I have been lurking for months now, and finally registered.

    I have been in the writing game for a while now, mostly fantasy and horror short stories and consudting interviews with musicians and actors at a horror webzine.

    Rejections come more frequently than acceptances for me. I tend to lean towards the pulp stye of fiction writing, ala Robert E. Howard and Phillip Farmer. I just finished my first novel, and am tallying up an impressive rejection count (8 so far). I am still keeping my head up though.

    Hope everyone is well, and I am glad I finally registered!!

    Cool

    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. Most of the SYW areas require the password of ….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.

    Greetings and welcome to the watercooler

    Take a wander around the various forums, there's lots to see and lots to learn, and even some fun threads too. Come along and pop on over to the Traditional Irish Pub (at the top of the Newbie forum) and say hi, there's plenty of friendly faces that you can chat with and lots of banter. There's also the Question of the Day threads at the top of the Newbie forum where you can answer random questions.

    Don't forget to read the newbie guide, and if you want to know what all the buttons mean check out this thread.

    There comes a time in your life when you just have to run outside and shout 'banana' as loud as you can. Are you there yet?

    Hey Jeff; Look at it this way - your batting average will never improve if you don't go to bat regularly. And like all great hitters, find a good batting coach.
