Hello out there! I'm not just a newbie to this forum, I'm a newbie to ANY forum. So after I slowly bumble through all the rules, I'll be ready for writing action! I've been a "casual" writer my whole life...I've got boxes and boxes of silly stories and poems that I've written since childhood, but these are the things I cherish the most. Ahh, the days when I wasn't so critical of my writing. These days I find that I critique myself before I even write one word down. So that's what has brought me here...a little support, a little constructive criticism, and a whole lotta growin'! So let the good times roll!
