Hey, raydar--welcome to the boards.

You might not have picked the best time to come on board--we're usually a little dead around the holidays. Things will pick up in January.

Feel free to tell us a little about yourself--where you're writing from, what you've written, what you hope to write in the future. Above all, have fun.

Happy wordtripping.

The challenges are an excellent place to start. There's a different one for every day of the week. And if currents ones don't strike your fancy go back through the older challenges and I'm sure something will.

Oh and Welcome to Wordtrip!!!!!

Welcome to wordtrip, raydar. pengween's right, the best place to start are the challenges. I've had a few decent works come from those. Hope you have fun here!
