    I always used to reference this site when looking up new agents. It was only a matter of time before I got an account.

    Writers digest mag mentioned this site in its 101 websites for writers edition.. This was one of the first forums i looked at and i have not looked at any others since! There's way too much info and friendly writers here to bother going elsewhere

    I saw this on the Writer's Digest website as well and noticed that romance author Meredith Duran mentioned it on her website. I've seen it referenced on the NaNoWriMo forums as well.

    I used to be a member on AuthorAdvance, but forgot my password. They said they'd sent it, but it never came through. So I looked elsewhere. Still finding my way around.

    Newbie

    I found the site when I googled a question.
    I'm a new short story writer. I plan to publish my book of stories early September. knowing it takes 3 months it should be ready in the stores before Christmas.

    My question was . . how many short stories should go in a collection?
    I'll probably do more than one book. I'll have enough stories to start a new book just uncertain how many to use per book.

    Any ideas? Thanks

    How are you going to get it in stores? It's actually rare for self-published or vanity published books, say from iUniverse or PublishAmerica, to be available in stores.

    Think not so much about the number of stories as about the number of pages /words.

    I saw it recommended on several blogs, but the one that convinced me to join was Jennifer Laughran's.

    I was searching for writing related feeds on Pulse. After reading a few of the posts I decided to check out the forum.

    Wink How did I find this site.

    Google found it for me. I was searching for a site for a friend who wanted to join a live writer's group and I'd offered to assist. Since I couldn't find one I suggested going this route. Decided to try it myself.

    I was recommended to this site by Gini Koch. She really helped me out at the Phoenix Comic Con with all sorts of good advice. I consider her a friend now. I can't wait to figure out how to use this site because I think it's going to be great for me. Thanks again Gini.

    Gini is one of our favorites.

    Best way to start here is to read the Newbie's Guide and write an intro post so our members can give you a proper welcome

    Hmm... I think when I first heard of AW it was recommended as a good forum if you wanted to improve your writing and meet fellow writers on Let the Words Flow, a writing blog.

    The only person who knows I write is on this site and she recommended it to me. Still a newb but I can say I'm glad she did.

    Doesn't everyone know about Absolute Write? I've been lurking on and off for years and years--and I don't even remember how I stumbled on it in the first place. But I read a blog post recently about how important it is to have community when you're a writer, and I realized I was very much missing that in my life. This was one of the places recommended in the comments to search out smart and good-looking writers to bond with, and so I shyly emerge from the shadows and try not to look like a weirdo.
