Hello from Finland
« on: October 12, 2008, 09:40:52 AM »
Hello all,

I'm 34 years old and I've been writing short stories for five years as a hobby. Maybe someday I'll be a professional writer, but for the time being I work in the telecom industry. Although I write in Finnish, I think the general discussions on this forum about writing are very interesting. There are things in writing that are independent of the language used (characters, plot...).

Welcome aboard Juniperus

I've been to Finland, loved it!  Spent a week in Helsinki, working.  Found the Finnish people very welcoming indeed.

Anyway, back to the formal bit!  We don't have many rules on MWC, but would appreciate it if you took a few moments to check out our etiquette guidelines by clicking on the link below:

So dive in, have fun, and enjoy.  You'll find stimulating discussion, opportunities to learn and share, and - of course - plenty of fun too. 

Check out the stickies on each section, and if you need help, just yell.

Welcome Juniperus. We have a very diverse group of people here and I might add, very helpful also.

Happy to have you with us.
