Come on in....

Postby Weenokee » Thu Jan 05, 2006 2:49 pm

Hello All!!
Glad to be here. I have been searching for a site for a while, had found
many for writers, but not exactly what I was looking for. I like it that
this forum is family friendly, I will feel right at home here!
A little about myself, I write thriller/ horor, would like to write more
mystery. Still learning though. I'm married with 3 wonderful
kids, one which made me a GRANNY back in July, an Oh, did I mention
that I love to write? Go figure?

Hey, Weenokee--welcome aboard.

We're just now ramping back up after the holidays, so feel free to poke around, join in any of the threads, or start your own. Tell us a little more about yourself--your writing experience, who you like to read, where you're writing from, and the like. Above all, have fun.

Happy wordtripping.

A hale and hearty welcome to Wordtrip!

I recommend that you try a challenge ASAP. So far the one I joined is a great motivator.

Welcome to Wordtrip Weenokee! My standard advice on Wordtrip is to click on "All Forums" near the top of the page and look through some of the MANY areas of discussion (not everything is active every day so you'll find things from a month or two ago that might peak your interest that you wouldn't find otherwise). Have fun and Happy Wordtripping!

Hi, Weenokee. Might be a little confusing at first...an embarrassment of riches...but once you get navigating, you're bound to find subjects up your alley. Write any poetry, perchance?

Hi Weenokee. Welcome. I'm sure you'll love it here-I agree that the challenges are great motivators- but also, the Wordcount is a really great motivator, too. YOu almost feel like writing because you just HAVE to put something down in that box ;)

I'm working on writing a mystery novel too, first time I've tried to write fiction for adults. It's great fun to learn something new.

See ya around the boards....

Wow, thanks again for the welcomes...
In response to your question, I use to write poetry, I wrote my first poem
when I was ten. By the time I was 16 I had boxes of spiral notebooks full
of my poems. I quit writing though after my fisrt baby was born. I didn't really
start writing again until just a few years ago other than a few short stories for
my children. Here is the first poem I wrote:

A thousand and one angels dancing around the moon,
protecting us from hatred sin and gloom
their praising our Lord, their praising his name,
He gave us Jesus so we could be saved

A thousand and one angels dancing around the moon,
Oh how beautiful it is just to see the night bloom :oops:


that was the first one I wrote back in 1978. I had forgotten how much
I enjoy writing poetry. Well, nothing to do but pick up the pen again!
Thanks for asking Mlou! hope to chat again soon. :D
