Introductions suck

Ladies and Gentlemen,

My name's unimportant but you're allowed to call me anything you wish as long as it's honourable of a man. Booker will do. Boo too.



There's nothing much to say about meself except that I cry in sad pictures and walk hand in hand with my love.



Most of the time I'm lonely (except when I'm not) and lose my mind looking for redemption in unsuccessful writing. I love writing.


Being a nave and gullible bloke I've come in hope to learn from those who know. I am aware I can't take more than I can give.


I'm looking forward to making friends.

Take some time and read the Newbie Guide and the Stickies found
at the top of Forum pages. They are your best guide to learning about
Absolute Write.

Don’t forget to read the FAQ regarding posting pictures at AW.


In fact, we have lots of brilliant FAQs check them out.


Members who want to start a thread in Share Your Work to have work critiqued need
50 posts. Don’t make a mad dash to reach your 50 posts. Take some time to greet fellow newbies,
critique other members’ works, or join a discussion.

Such an unexpected collective response to my poor introduction makes me think that the writers can change this wicked world for better.
