Well, hello there, errr
« on: February 01, 2012, 11:18:40 AM »
Good afternoon

Please excuse the formality, it seemed like a good idea at the time but lasted about as long as my other good ideas. I'm currently editing the biography of my childhood, shedding words because the rotten thing is about one hundred and thirty thousand words long.

The writing always flows well as long as i, gently but firmly, control my critical nature!  The editing is just one long, grindingly slow argument between the two of me.....

Welcome to My Writer’s Circle, tomrymer!  You’ve just become part of a wonderful community.  

First, please take a moment to read the guidelines for forum etiquette.  

http://www.mywriterscircle.com/index.php/topic,7415.0.html

You'll find Blue stickies  (with the push-pin icons) at the top of each board.  Read these.  They’ll help you find your way around and acquaint you with the local customs.

It’s considered good manners to critique a few pieces in Review My Work or Review My Poetry before asking for reviews yourself.  Give and take, you know?

Consider entering any open flash fiction or poetry contests.  They’re fun and anonymous.  
If you get stuck in one of the dark, winding tunnels or have a question, feel free to pm (personal message) a moderator – they’re the ones with blue stars below their usernames.

Most of all, enjoy hanging out with the writers on MWC   :D
