    A hoy hoy, fellow wordsmiths!

    My name is mat. I just showed up and I wanted to say 'hello.'
    I've been writing comedy for a few years and decided to try my hand at writing a novel. Somewhere along that spiral I ended up here with you scallywags.
    I have yet to figure out how to navigate this labyrinth, so, if you have any advice for a noob, I'll gladly devour it.
    May the wind be always at your back, friends.

    It's a simple fact of life that not everyone will be your target audience.

    Welcome to AW, Matt. My wife gave me some good advice years ago. She told me not to write romance or comedy. I think she was trying to tell me something (LOL). So I'm glad someone here can write comedy. Good for you.

    Lil is just full of of sweetness and love, with a side of raunchy innuendo. That never hurt anyone! - Jaymz
