Hey! Who knew that a simple google of 'Writing forums' would bring up such a lively community! I believe it goes without being said, but I'll say it anyway: I hope to become a good asset to this community. Cognito, already read the post you write to every newcomer. One question: Is there anyway to hide a work that's already been posted on a public website in order to augment the chances of getting published? You say merely deleting it afterward does no good... you sure there's no way around that?
