And yes I decided to make an account and now that I am here I want to say that I hope to make a lot of good friends on AW and hopefully get some beta readers as well. I write magical realism, fantasy and literary fiction, also poetry on the side. I like writing poetry more than fiction anyways so I think when I have enough posts I'd be able to post here.

Welcome! I love lit fic and I'm undone by good poetry (or really bad poetry, sometimes. Who am I to judge?)

I also love Italy - one of my fave places in the whole world! Whereabouts are you? (If you say Camaoire, we're already friends ;) )

Oh but Siena is gorgeous! You are so lucky! I've been to Siena a few times - it really is lovely. What are you doing there?

My uncle works in a hotel and so I work with him there.
What is the museum there that I loved so much - hang on, I'll go back and check my Italy blog. I remember writing about the children like sparrows there - I loved Siena!

Canada is also lovely. Have you been to Australia?

No I haven't. It's funny you say Canada is lovely because how can anyone like that country, quite cold and boring.

Boring is actually not the worst thing in the whole world just at the moment. And Australia is just coming into Spring and already we have bushfire notifications, so yanno... cold is good. And all the Canadians I've met have been lovely (priviliged white person perspective.)

Wait, I like Canada quite a bit. Early childhood across the Detroit River from Windsor, and I remember on a clear day you could see people in another country waving at you. Later I lived across Lake Ontario and visited Toronto fairly often. Of course, after my formative years in desert heat, I strongly prefer cold.

Although we disagree on Canada, I'm still happy to meet you. Welcome!

Maryn, who doesn't even mind shoveling snow

Hello, DarkWriter223! I've seen you around the boards already but here is an official welcome: Welcome to AW! :D

The place is awesome, right? More information about writing and publishing than you can shake a really big stick at, and a fun, global community of like-minded peeps to hang out with.

If you haven't already, please carefully read the Newbies Guide you were linked to when you registered, as well as the stickied threads at the top of each forum page. This will help you understand AW's overall rules of engagement, plus the culture and etiquette of each space within the forums.

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

Also, put me in the Canada Is Awesome camp. It's like New Zealand on steroids. I'd live there in a heartbeat if I could. Though I'd also love to visit and explore Italy, too, so really I'm in the Whole World Is Awesome camp (even Australia :p).

See you around the boards!
Izz
