    New here. :)

    My wife, PattyCat, invited me to join this forum. We're both writers so I help we can provide and receive whatever possible. Happy to be here.

    Welcome. It must be nice to have a writer as a wife. You probably get so much more support that way.

    She's a pretty harsh critic. Fabulously supportive yes but also knows what I'm capable of --- which is the problem, lol.

    Welcome to the Cooler! That's really quite fantastic that you've found a partner who shares a love for writing. I can't say I'm so lucky, but at least he's supportive. I hope you have a wonderful stay here!
