New here

Postby Monicajoye » Thu Jan 05, 2006 3:43 pm

Well, obviously I'm new here. I've never joined a site like this, so this should be very interesting. I grew up in Mississippi (where all the great writers are from :wink: ), and now I live in Tennessee. I'll be having a baby in May, and my husband is encouraging me to use my off-time until then to write. Ha! He doesn't know what he's in for!

Welcome to Wordtrip! Congrats on the baby! I've got 3 kids myself, 8 year-old boy, 2 year-old boy, 3 month old Girl. If you poke around the forums (click on "All Forums" in that top navigation area) you're sure to find something fun and inspiring. Happy Wordtripping!

Hi, Monicajoye...I'm always pushing the challenges...a different one every day, poetry, short stories, etc. Bet you'll find something you like. Happy wordtripping!

Congrats on the Baby, as the post before said, is it a Boy or Girl? I think you'll like it here, lots going on.

It's a boy. His name is Cade, short for McCaden Christian.

I don't really know what I write right now. Just about anything that comes to mind.
