Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm new! I'm so excited to connect with other writers. I use to be a prolific writer in my childhood and teen years but as an adult life has gotten in the way and I feel I've lost my touch a bit but not my passion and creativity. I hope to get back on track here (and just in time for NaNoWriMo hopefully) and help others in their writing goals who may be in a similar position. Peace and love to all and I hope the writing gods smile upon you!

Welcome, Sarah, to AW :) It's nice to meet you!

AW has everything you need, and more, to get you back on the writing train. From abundant information on all aspects of the craft and business of writing to a vibrant, global community, we've got you covered!

Please carefully read the Newbies Guide you were linked to when you registered, and peruse the stickied/pinned threads at the top of each forum page. Doing this will help you understand the rules of the forums, plus the etiquette and culture of the various spaces within, and will help you avoid potentially embarrassing newbie mistakes. AW is large and can be overwhelming/intimidating at first but if you take your time exploring you'll be acclimated and comfortable soon enough.

You might find the Goals and Accomplishments room a nice place to start exploring from. This month's Challenge - Build a Writing Habit thread might be just what you need to get you going again :D

Explore, lurk if you want, join in conversations you find fun or interesting if you want, make friends, enjoy yourself!

See you around the boards!
Izz
