    Greetings From the US Via Philippines

    Hello Everyone - I'm an author from the US, currently living in Philippines, trying to finish up my first commercial fiction novel. Looking for community, ideas, inspiration, and hoping to share the same. Take care and see you around the forums!

    Just like writing in the US, only Hotter!

    *Kidding* No, it's fine as long as I have an internet connection. I actually came here a year ago (and met my wife for the first time), and that's when I finished the rough draft of my novel. Travel inspires me to write, plus I was living alone on a small island at the time with no distractions - a big plus for productivity.

    Thanks again to all for your warm welcomes - I think I will enjoy this community very much!
