Ditto, new here too. Although I drop in and read as guest frequently, this is the first time to post.

Mendicant writer currently in Singapore, onto my second novel, in the querying stage. Had a couple of partial requests, but I'm not happy with the query yet.

Like to look at other's work and help if I can.

Look forward to chatting.

Hello All - new guy on the block. I try to write fantasy and thriller - and am told I'm not too bad.

Hope to get to know everyone in due time and look forward to getting involved asap!

Cheers

Hi everyone! New here. I've been a freelance writer (ghostwriting first and then publishing my own non fiction books via minisites) for 12 years but I just recently began my fiction journey, which is why I want to learn from people who have more knowledge than me in that arena.

I self published my first short story on Amazon recently - scared to death - but did it afraid (courage will come later). I am looking forward to learning more about writing fiction and the promotional aspect of it all. I do well in the non fiction arena for myself, but it's like fiction is this whole other world to me where I'm a lost little girl. :lol:

Anyway, nice to meet you :) I'm sitting here in Texas enjoying our cold front with lower 90 degree temps!
Tiff ;)

Hi Everyone, I'm new here. I followed Tiffany Dow who posted a favorable comment about this forum on her blog! I write blog posts, reports and ebooks and also do some freelancing. I'm planning to do some publishing on Kindle and I need all the input I can get.

I'm looking forward to contributing wherever I can on this forum.

Hi everyone! I am resurrecting the introduction thread to announce my arrival :) I am a short story writer as well as an ebook ghostwriter. My latest project is an accounting of conspiracy theories as a ghostwriter...it is pretty interesting to say the least.

You hope to find some useless information? I guess you could try to the "All Things Procrastination" forum.

Well, I'm not new here by a long shot but had to change my user name due to vitriolic personal attacks by a poster on another discussion forum - to include attacks against my wife.

You all know me as lvcabbie. I hope you will also know me as Dale Day, author of the Father Serra's Legacy series. I'm going to post the url to my publisher's website and hope you will drop in and visit.

Thanks. 8-)
Drop by Father Serra's Legacy http://msgdaleday.blogspot.com. Comments always eagerly awaited - but only if you find the item interesting enough to respond to.

Last time,

Post by JustSarah » September 25th, 2012, 9:08 am

I registered I did not properly introduce myself. I'm sort of a naturally shy person. Anyway I'm sort of an experimental writer. You could say I write post dystopian, though that term seems to have a lot of baggage these days.D: I'm sort of an odd one, as i sometimes prefer to write a synopsis than rush into writing a novel. although this is the reverse of how I use to be.

Hello, I'm Lauren, a chronic lurker. I think I'm registered on half the writer forums on the internet, and have yet to really find my notch. I write contemporary YA, although I'm known to stick my toes in the middle grade pool. I'd also like to break out of the contempt box, but I'm really bad with change.

Looking forward to lurking - i mean getting to know! you all.

Hey, my name is Chris and I've been an on and off lurker here for the past couple years. Looking forward to some good discussion on this mad subject of writing. Working on a novel, short stories and poetry. Hope to meet some good friends here. Super times!
