Christine, Welcome to the novelist group. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.
We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.
Christine, welcome to Screenwriters and Story Editors. Glad you've come along for the fun. Do drop in to our Introductions thread and share a bit about yourself and your work. We're writers at all levels in our work so feel free to ask questions, seek resources, and share your own expertise and experiences. Here's to getting to know each other. Welcome! /djw
