    Hello from Boston

    I have been a member for a while, but mostly a silent one. I just realized I've never properly introduced myself.

    I have been writing on and off my whole life. I did fantasy novels and poetry when I was in high school, got out of creative writing during college and grad school when my inner critic got too loud, and am now working my way back into it. Lately I've been working on writing picture books for toddlers, although I still dabble in poetry and fantasy as well.

    Great to be here!

    Welcome? I guess...

    Nice to get to know you.
    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.

    Nice to see you in the daylight, Celeste. Do you attend Boston College? I used to live near there, on Orkney Rd., and have a fondness for BC students still.

    Maryn, glad to officially meet you
    Kindness. It doesn't cost a damned thing. If you're smart, you'll spread that stuff all over the place.

    Hi Maryn! Good to see you. No, I am passed the college phase of life, although I think about going back to grad school every couple of months. Are you still in the Boston area?
