Hi!
« on: January 06, 2014, 04:00:57 PM »
Another newbie checking in!  I have been a writer and aspiring author for a long time, but I suffer from the curse of a lack of confidence and so have lots of half-finished ideas hanging around.  I am finally close to actually completing a short book-length work and am hoping interacting with other writers and getting advice will help!  I write YA and fantasy.

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 etiquette, and limits.  Reading this page first will help. None of us wants to cause a meltdown to the servers or distress the 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.

Hello and welcome to MWC, Dachelle.

Look around, read and comment on some of the work of others and I'm sure they will be happy to do the same for you.

Smiles,

Welcome Dachelle. Glad you found us, great place to improve you skills and your confidence.

Lots of us have that pile of half finished works, so you are not alone there.  ;)
