140, Hi there!
Posted by Amurit, Thu Mar-29-12 03:38 PM
So, today's my birthday, and I thought that I'd shake things up a bit and give up my loner ways. I've been writing on and off for years, but I've decided that this is the time for me to make a serious effort toward finishing my many WIP's with an eye for eventual publishing.

I'm hoping that a sense of community and the opportunity to give and receive constructive criticism will help me stay motivated. This community seems to be a wonderful place for that!

For my day job, I run a small chain bookstore in Georgia, and I often handle signings for the store. Just putting that out there, if anyone's interested. :)

Wandering off to explore the boards, now.
141, Happy birthday!

Hi Amurit! :wave: Welcome to FM, and Happy Birthday to you!

This is a wonderful community for motivation. You might want to look at the Challenges and the Goals boards. Plus have a look at Roving Crits. Critiques are both given and received with gratitude.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
