    Call me Evelyn (..."Ishmael" was taken :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Evelyn, Apr 1, 2007.

    Hi, I'm Evelyn, another refugee from WritingForums.com who is very glad to find on-line writerly goings-on here.

    I'm 44, live in Seattle, and was an Metallurgical/Mechanical engineer until health problems forced me into early retirement. I've always dabbled around with writing, and people (even people other than my mother :) have told me I was good at it. So I've decided to make a silk purse out of the sow's ear of my health woes by exploring what I can do as a writer.

    I'm here on-line primarily to hone my craft (starting with finding a less pretentious way to put that :), and for companionship and banter with other writers. I try to be friendly and give good critique, and hope to receive the same.

    It's very nice to be here,

    - Evelyn

    Hi there.
    If you want banter we can supply it, even if its sometimes nonsensical banter. Critiques are also available if your willing to be a little patient.
    Cheers

    Thanks, all :)

    The other forum's back up, but I think I'll be splitting my time between both writingforums.(whatever) :)

    Am (hoping to) get a a short story revised today before posting it here - but then, I should probably get in some critiques of other people's work here first.
