    Hello

    Hi

    I've been lurking for a while and finally decided to join.

    I have a couple of short stories that I've been writing on and off for about a year now. They're finished but still need polishing. The more I read about writing, the more I realise there are improvements I can make. I have a lot to learn and I hope being here will help.

    Anyway, I guess I'll see you around the boards.

    "The heights of great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night" -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

    Welcome to AW!
    Before going into battle, Vikings would ingest Amanita muscaria. In addition to being moderately poisonous, Amanita muscaria eliminated fear causing them to be feared warriors earning Vikings the nick name berserkers.
