    hi

    I've been looking through some of the beware threads, so I thought I'd take the time to introduce myself. I'm Vanessa, 40. I teach English comp. I'm the founder and editor of a literary poetry magazine. Right now I'm sending my fantasy novel out. I guess I feel like I've wasted a lot of time, but I hope to waste less in the future!

    It would be good to browse around the forums. Each forum (and sub-forum) provides a place where your question might garner more answers.

    KellyAssauer provided a good place to begin:

    But you can also check out forums like the FAQs, General Writing Interests, or Discussion to start.

    Good luck!
