Just an introduction

Aloha everyone,

I'm new to this forum. My name is Eleni, and I live in Hawaii. I started out as a screenwriter, but after finishing a first draft of my first novel last month, I found my true calling.

I've already started reading through this forum and have found some great advice.

Nice meeting all of you

Eleni

Welcome to AW. Hope you enjoy your stay with us.
How do you like your popcorn?

If you go to the bottom of the page to the ‘forum jump’ you can scroll down and find all the areas of this place. Most of the SYW areas require the password of ….vista. A word to the wise, (50 posts), it would be a good idea to participate first in helping others before you think about posting your own work. After you have been around here for awhile, then post something of your own for help. Good luck.

Talking I'm turning green!

How's the weather over there? Well, where I'm sittin it's cloudy, windy, and the temp is starting to drop quick. Also, I have always wanted to write a screenplay (my novel would make a killer flick!) Alas, I don't have the first clue how to start...wait! This is a writer's forum! Gotta go, oh, nice to meet you!

Welcome, Eleni!

Very interesting. 'Eleni' is one of the most common names in Greek, and it's the Greek equivalent for Helen.

Victoria, Looks like we're working in a different direction, LOL. Anytime you need advice about SPs, drop me a message. Tweather here is lovely. Quite a contrast from my birth state of N.J.
