Lovely planet you have here. My name is Mary and I'm a writer. If that sounds like the beginning of an AA speech, well it could be. Maybe AAA, Aspiring Authors Anonymous (if anyone needs a support group, it's us). I don't have any writing creds except for one finished and then immediately shelved YA novel, a couple of writing conferences under my belt, and one current in progress YA novel. I also am blogging my writing journey at http://marewolf.blogspot.com Stop by, there's free cheetos. P.S. Cogito, I've seen the intro shpeel so you can save yourself some time and skip it. I look forward to avoiding my WiP by hovering around these boards for an unforseen amount of time.
