    I'm new, too!

    As we say down South, Hey y'all.

    I have been lurking for a few days and have finally decided to join the site and join the conversation.

    I have three supernatural romance WIP that I work at on any given day, depending on what strikes my mood at that moment.

    I enjoy reading all of the helpful advice and the success stories, and I hope to make worthy contributions in the near future.

    Tracie,

    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.

    Thanks for the welcome

    Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. I have been perusing the newbie guide and checking out some boards. I am interested in critiquing for some fellow writers and hope to be getting to that in the next few days. I'd really like to be an active member on the site.

    Happy writing in the new year!

    Sorry, Lavern. I don't do cheese grits. Regular grits with butter at a fish fry with hush puppies and I'm there!
