    Hello

    Hi everyone, from a newbie to the forum but not to writing!

    I have been a freelance writer for over five years, and have been self-publishing erotica off and on for the past year. I'd like to learn more about regular fiction (read: more plot that isn't all about the adult themes) and try my hand at that as well.

    Hope to meet fellow writers here and connect on ideas, advice, etc.
