Like a shiny new penny

Postby Scott Henderson » Sun Feb 26, 2006 7:40 pm

Hello to all... I am new to writting,but am having the time of my life these past four months. I have a first draft of a Novel done with a lot of research to do to polish it up. I enjoy writting poetry and have noticed that you have something for me here in that regard. Looks like a great site! Can't wait to poke around,so....I'm off.

Welcome aboard my dear...

What stage are you in? Letting the novel cool before editing? Ready to dive in and work on polishing it? Just need some down time as you have completed one huge step as it is?

No matter the stage, we can help. There are some lovely diversions here. Play some of the challenges, vent about your writing experience in a writing blog, discuss entering the publising came in our writing threads, or if you want edits, there's the large writing group that can help provide you feedback on your novel.

Of course if you just need down time, join us in the coffee shop, that's fun too.

Oh, what kind of story is it?

Hiss

Thanks for the welcome everyone!
Hiss, My novel/story is a murder mystery. I have a lot of work to do yet on it. I have been plotting out a major change for the first few chapters, so it is on my mind, but on the shelf. I plan on posting more here as time goes on,so don't give up on me!
