    Smile Hello from Nevada

    Wow! I am already overwhelmed by the amount of activity on this forum... I was up till all hours last night looking around.

    After hearing many people tell me I should write a book, I finally decided to give it a whirl. Although it isn't the story most people who say that will expect, (usually it is said in response to some humorous anecdote I've shared about my heathen children) I'm having fun with it.

    Maybe by the time I have the requisite 50 posts I will have enough written to submit for critique.

    Looking forward to learning all I can and getting to know everyone!

    Welcome, welcome!

    There is indeed a lot to read and learn here. You can go to SYW (password - vista) before you have 50 posts to get a feel for what to expect and throw in your own two cents. (In fact, it is considered polite to have dipped your toes in before you submit something of your own)

    Keep having fun - and don't worry - most of us don't bite!

    I look forward to seeing you around the threads!
    I have a horror story on SYW Come put red lines through it!

    You can't... start to delete a word so you can change it to a different word but then keep the first letter of the old word...
    it will eventually eat the new word's soul and turn it into an evil, undead word-zombie...

    Your children are heathens, too? Well, welcome from one heathen-raiser to another. I vow to use AW to screen out the unnatural sounds emanating from around the XBox. I hope you can do the same.

    Welcome. It's more fun to write stories people wouldn't expect. In fact, most people probably wouldn't even expect me to be a writer.
