Job leads, News, and Conversations with Those Who Write and Edit

So, I'm really happy to read some of the threads on some of the forums here, and see that I am not the only writer here who is just now trying to find my way into the community. The shadowed voice in my brain was assuring me that I would be the only one here who was new. That real writers have been writing for a long time and they will all be able to spot my obvious incongruity with the rest of the members. Even though I am much better able to dismiss that voice than I ever have been, it's nice to immediately have that dismissal validated.

I'm looking forward to exploring what this site has to offer, and I'm grateful to all of the members that have presented such a friendly and welcoming forum in the first place.

Thanks for this expression Amy! Think of this community as an intelligent city where people of all types move around. It only takes a few experiences to get used to the city. After awhile you laugh at what intimidated you only a moment ago. "Ah, it was nothing," you say and move now with more confidence because every voice, every kind and type is welcome. Fear and exclusion are the bane of good communities and this one was conceived like an old utopian community without the severe morality. Come and go. Bring resource, take resource. Be bold. Bring your best self and let it run out free in the wilds for awhile.

It doesn't take very long for you to roll this place around on your tongue a bit and get the flavor.

Welcome to the eclectic gang. Mighty pleased to make your acquaintance!
