So I've been thinking about all the forums I'm addicted to, and I have to say this is the most grown up and widely plucked. You're a nice mix of folks.

There's not loads of 'cliques', and not huge amounts of sickly 'Oh you're the soooo right :kiss:huggle111!!!111 ' stuff.
And people don't seem to get all suicidal at stern replies, can take jokes etc.

Plus, just like my Volvo maintenance site, full of useful info you can actually use!

If I had any money I'd contribute, but I don't so I'll just say nice things instead.

I like it here too. I used to be on another writer's board, but this one is much better, and with so much more to offer. I also like how it's moderated. A public board needs moderators who are on the stick. That's something that makes AW work.

And there are a lot of well-published professionals here, who are more than willing to share knowledge and advice. With so many interesting threads going on at a time, it can be hard to keep up with them all. Who has time fore writing? :)

It's a great community, and I'm glad to be a part of it. More fiction than non-fiction writers, though. Although most of the helpful information is crossover material.

I noticed that there was hugging and kissing going on in here, so I just stopped in to stand in line and wait for my turn.

Joe, I hope you didn't get your coffee at that book signing. Someone may have gotten the halls confused.....ew ew ew

I'm trying not to get addicted. I find the more time I spend writing, the more I need to break up my isolation by visiting a message board. I also spend time at Writers Row.

I find the people here to be very helpful and encouraging though. That makes it easy to return.

OK, so I just poked my head in there and it gave me the same feeling I get when I chew on a towel. Squeaky, nasty blackboard scraping arrgghh!!

There's something about men's underwear, something about defineable 'lumps' that give me the creeps. I much prefer a nice, vague, 'bump'.

Now, if you click on the sign, you'll see why it's easy to mistake one hall for the other. ;)

The bumps thing is okay...better than the loose hangy thing that sometimes goes on. I prefer those new boxer-brief jobs....I'll pop into Brady's thread and see if we can get him to cough up what's going on there with him today....

I really like this place.

I like the excellent, user-friendly design.

I like the wide variety of forums.

I like how the board attracts writers who haven't a single clip and writers who've sold thousands of books.

Most of all I like the fact that this board is welcoming to new writers, but in a you-must-write-decently-to-get-published-sense rather than the more typical yes-I-know-I-can-barely-write-but-how-dare-you-kill-my-dreams sense that often haunts many writing message boards.

This is one cool cyberplace. :)

Nivvi get your shoe and booty-kick zeee lovey-doveys from your thread! Oh I am glad I'm not that stupid to fll in love in threads ... ok I like women but that's not the point, is it? Mmmm mature solid honest married women ... good women you know. Sexy young old ones and so on et al see? But yes I oh no agree with you on this love in bare threads. Who goes for love anyway.

Anyway where was I? Oh yes here I am!
