AdeaNeedsCoffee is on a distinguished road
Howdy from the US South

While at first I would not stigmatize myself as a 'Southern Writer" I would have to admit that the title would be factually correct.
I have been a writer all my life. I have only published articles (newspapers, magazines, and blogs) and had a stint as a comic strip writer once. I have been a QA editor (freelance) for years. I love to edit, that is my not-so-secret secret.
I am here, at AW, to find a community of like minded people and make some friends. I have had a lot of change recently in my life (who hasn't?) and it is time to branch out!
So, HOWDY Y'ALL!!!!

Howdy, Adea! Southern writers are some of the best there are, I believe. The names start to float through my mind but I'm sure you know the same list.

Just saying, you're in excellent company.

Welcome.
