Hiya!
« on: January 21, 2012, 11:05:06 PM »
Hi everyone!

I'm an aspiring author who is writing (or more accurately, trying to write) a short story to enter into a competition.  And eventually I'd like to finish that novel I started which currently is comprised of 2 sentences.

I came here looking to learn how to critique, and if I ever finish either of my endeavors to get feedback on those.

So this is me saying hi (lol)

Hello Nicole,

Nice to have you here at MWC.  Before too long one of the moderators will stop in at this thread to welcome you and give you some more info, in the meantime, welcome from another newbie...I've been around about a month and I've really found this to be one of the best forums I've seen.  I think you'll feel at home here before too long.

Welcome to My Writers Circle Nicole. We all had to start with baby steps and if you stick to it, you'll soon find you're doing better than a sentence or two - it will be pages at a time, then chapters.  :)

To make the time you spend here a good experience for you and others, plus, to learn your way around MWC, start by clicking and reading the link below.
