    Newbie here. My names Lizzy

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Lizzy, Mar 29, 2007.

    Hello everyone. My name is Elizabeth, Lizzy to my friends. I'm a former ballet dancer, forever an artist, future novelist and presently a happy wife and mother of three with, I'm told, a wicked imagination and a need to share.

    Recently, my youngest started school. Being someone who needs an outlet, I decided to put the stories and characters that have taken up residence in my brain down on paper or computer screen.

    I came here looking for a place to share, learn and thrive in all things that will help me reach my goal, mainly finishing a full length book.

    So where do I start?

    Lizzy

    Oh and I didn't think you'd mind.

    I'm self-promoting, meaning, I NEED CRITIQUES! I am so totally new at this and would immensely appreciate it.

    Here's an excerpt to my story:

    I'm a fast learner. ;) And can you believe that the name Lizzy is still available? WOW!!! LOL!

    Cheers.

    Well, that is good to know. Although, as a friend once told me, when God handed out patience, I was in the restroom but I'll try. :D

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Thank you so much for the welcome. I understand the inability to spend too much time on the forum. I myself will probably check in once or twice daily but I am really trying to force myself to spend a set amount of time writing and less time trolling the internet. I feel like I spent far too much time at one site writing fan fic, my first venture into sharing my writing since school. I figure why do that, hone my craft and try to make something of it. I sought this site out amongst others to see if I had what it takes and to get advice that I can truly use so thank you everyone for welcoming me and making that possible. I hope to share some of my ideas and see what you all have for me as well.

    Thanks,

    Lizzy:)
