    Hello all

    Hello all-

    New to the forum and just decided to take the plunge.
    I’m working on a lot of different stuff, been rejected, ignored and mostly neglected-(and not just by my significant other—just kidding honey); and I think this forum may provide some ways to help me improve.
    Looking forward-

    Welcome to AW!

    There are a lot of very knowledgeable people here! I've had a few help me so I know.
    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.
