Any suggestions. Is there a thread for being stuck?

Thanks,

Welcome Sharon! There is a thread for posting about writing, where you can post that you are stuck. Or, if you prefer being stuck, there are a variety of threads to choose from, including the procrastination thread :D

Hi all,

My name is Graeme. I have dabbled with prose for most of my life, but only recently have gotten into the online community. It was Craig (first post on this thread) who introduced me here. You can read more about what I do on my website (signature below). I am looking forward to reading your comments and posts and getting to know you all.
Cheers!

Graeme

Hey all,

I'm a bit of a lurker and thought it was time I officially joined.

My first love is writing science-fiction, but I've taken a bit of a detour lately. I sort of stumbled into the M/M erotic romance sub-genre and am giving it a solid try. I don't know if there are any other writers of this genre here, but that doesn't matter so much -- writing questions and discussions are often genre-less (unless it delves into the specifics of a genre).

I'm approaching writing this genre a bit differently, too, in that I'm attempting to create a platform on tumblr and twitter (and might set up facebook soon) -- so I have at least some sort of web presence. I figure this new genre is primarily based on ebook sales and word of mouth, so being present on the internet is probably a good thing (and so I look forward to exploring the social media board on this site).

Anyway, I'll pop in now and then and maybe we'll get to know each other!

Hi, Everyone!

I've been a lurker on Nathan's blog for years - and now I've finally decided to come out of the shadows and say hey! I can't wait to interact with and maybe even work with you guys on some of your projects! Take care!

Hi, folks. I just signed up today, after lurking intermittently for quite a while.

I've been a science fiction fan since I was a kid... so I've gone and written an espionage novel. And another one is in the works. I'm currently mired in the misery that is querying, with a few last revisions on the first novel for bonus hell. I'm looking forward to getting back to actual writing!

Hello!

Oooooh, this is always nerve wracking, like wandering into a part where you don't know anybody and having to shout "Listen to me while I talk about myself!"
(Clears throat)
hello! I'm Tony Schumacher, I stumbled across this site after seeing it mentioned on the Kindle Boards forum so I thought I'd join up and join in! I'm a writer, stand up comedian based in Liverpool England, and when I'm not writing or comeding (is that a word?) I can normally be found wandering the lanes where I live with a confused dog and a smile on my face.
If you see me, say "Hello" or at the very least beep your horn to tell me to get out if the way.

Hi Liz, welcome. You mean a sci-fi espionage novel?

Thanks, Matt. No, I mean a straight-up current-day espionage novel, no SF in sight. (I'm as surprised as anyone.) I do have some SF-espionage in mind for down the road, though.

'Allo.

As the 'nym suggests, I'm in the process of making a rather significant leap from one type of writing to another. Don't worry, I haven't quit my day job. In any case, I've been noodling around Nathan's website for awhile, and figured now's as good a time as any to jump in and start building up feedback karma before finally pulling the trigger on some of my own work.

On that note...In the off chance that any of you have questions about bugs or general bio, I'd be happy to take a shot at answering them, or at least point you in the direction of a reliable website.

Cheers.

Hey, welcome! Also, YAY, a fellow scientist! I'm fresh (well, one year fresh) out of a Biochemistry program and I loved Virology. The rest of microbio was okay, but viruses are like my best friends. ;) I hope you enjoy the forums.

Hello everyone

I've been working on self-publishing my own book, and have a lot of questions, so I'm glad I found this board.

Looking forward to everyone's insights.

Thanks!

Hello, All! I'm Sarah.

I've always loved and used and referred to Nathan's blog, but I never really visited the forums.

Then in one of his last posts he was like, "And if you want to join the Forums, click here", and I had to ask myself, "Why haven't I ever done that?" And so I did.

I write MG and YA. I've been writing some fantasy and science fiction, although it's not hard core fantasy or science fiction because I like my reader to be able to relate my books to what they see in the real world (although I do love some very out of this world fantasy and science fiction myself).

I've been busy on the Queries forum since I joined, and, again, I wondered why I'd never done this before.
