    Aussie writer looking for a new community

    I've been on my fair share of Internet communities—most bad. I'm looking for a good bunch of fellow writers/readers, and this seems like a great place.

    I'm a writer with too much choice, and am half way through a novel, with a million short stories and others ideas itching to take its place.

    I'm looking forward to reading a lot of stories and giving them critiques.

    Cheers!

    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.
