    Welcome.

    We have lots of folks from the UK. You'll meet them in time.

    My only suggestion is to take your time and get to know the forums and how things are done here. It's big place for an Internet forum, but newbies are just as welcome here as anyone else. We're a little nutty, but friendly for the most part.

    Merry Christmas! You might start in the area of writing you are interested in, like novels or freelance. Don't forget about Office Party when you want a break and some fun.

    It is 2: 14 a.m. Christmas morning in western Kansas. The sky is foggy. The night is 19* with enough breeze to send the tumble weeds ambling; no snow as yet but there is still hope for the sled that is under the tree. The ponies in the corral down the road are speaking horse again. The owl is owling. The neighbors are home from midnight mass--pulling out all the stops--Los Tigres del Norte and cerveza. The tias are inside around the tree; the tios are outside making barbacoa and telling stories in Spanish. I think that is what woke me. No sweat--nice to see people having a good time together. I imagine that when our celebration starts at eleven all the neighbors will be asleep. Anyway, I'm going to have a glass of wine and try to write a little--a second Merry Christmas to all !--s6

    The most I'll probably do is post a query one day, the guys in there seem really helpful and honest, I like that. I don't feel I have the ability or knowledge to critique just yet but I do in private as the sticky suggested.

    Hi there Fallen! :p
