    Red face Greetings and Salutations!

    Hullo folks. I'm a 30-something recreational writer, and I'd like to get into regular pursuit of the craft. Been hacking away at the fruits of this year's failed NaNoWriMo attempt, and I've realized that I could use all the help I can get.

    I like Fantasy, Sci-Fi and the like, though I think genres are there to be abused.

    Running out of things to say here. Uhm. I like bacon.

    Hope to have some useful give and take here!

    Bacon works
    The creative writing process is a lot like emotional binge and purge cycles.

    vitamink,

    Welcome to AW! I like bacon, too!
    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.

    I made chocolate-covered bacon on skewers recently. Some might say "ew" but they were good! All you tasted was salty chocolate. Honestly it was so much work, I'd rather just eat the bacon next time and be done with it.
