hi!
« on: January 21, 2012, 03:01:41 PM »
i have been writing for a very long time - have done a few manuscripts (all rejected) and many, many, *many* letters to various publications (all but 3 printed).

i have bits and bobs and excerpts and scraps all over my computer, which i would be happy to put up for review.  (asking family to review is a bit pointless:  they either love love love everything or else i find myself handing them a pen and saying "here you are, go nuts" because they cannot resist rewriting it all).

i live in ontario just south of Algonquin Park; i'm 45; have ADHD/Asperger's; have three girls (25 - asperger's, 22 - central auditory processing disorder, and nearly-5 - ADHD/Impulse disorder); and an ADHD dog, who will hopefully receive his Novice Trick Dog certification soon.

Welcome to the Circle, we have much to offer. We’ve divided the subjects of interest into categories. (There are subheadings under each one.) However, before you go any further, please drop by this link below and give it a read.

http://www.mywriterscircle.com/index.php?topic=7415.0

It will familiarize you with how we do things; our forum-educate, and limits.  Reading this page first will help. None of us wants to meltdown the servers or any of our other members.   

Visit our Coffee Shop. Make some friends in the, ‘MWC Bar’ for instance. Ask some questions and jump right in. We do however ask that you help a few others before you post any of your own work. Look for a blue pushpin at the top of each page-list you open. Read that post.

Whether you are a reader, writer, or a poet, we have it all.  As implied in the name, ‘My Writer’s Circle’, we all learn from, and teach one another. Again, welcome aboard.

Welcome to MWC!

I know all about writing scraps, but most of mine are on the back of receipts and envelopes. 
Hope you enjoy your time on MWC  ;D

Hello and welcome threenorms. It sounds like you have an interesting household, and yet you find time to write.  Good for you.

lol - my two older girls are grown and gone and in no hurry to present me with grandchildren so you know how it goes: "if you want something done, you gotta do it yourself".

hence my youngest daughter, saari.

i have to write - if i don't get it out onto paper (even virtual paper) then it sticks in my head and messes me up.
