Hi, I found this site by googling "Writing Forums," and it seems like exactly what I've been looking for. Had to drop out of school where I was studying creative writing, and between my wife who isn't artistic in this way and my newborn daughter, I don't have many writer friends to talk to. I'm hoping this forum can fill the void. I'm from Chicago and working on my 6th novel. Nothing published yet, but I have agents reading a couple things, so fingers are always crossed.
