Sorry to read of your illness and difficulty in writing. Hope you feel better. Although new to this site, I am an old hand at networked communities. I noted on your profile that you have been on Compuserve for 20 years. I too started there and thoroughly enjoyed it. Gave it up a few years ago when the cost got ridiculous compared to the benefits. Have met up with all my old forum friends on Facebook. Thought I would give SheWrites a try. Best wishes on your fight for good health.

Glad to meet you JoAnn! I'm also a member of SWA, and was just thinking about submitting an article to the Purple Prose. 

I hope to meet up one day.

 

Hugs!!

JoAnn, I just opened the door to the novelist group for you - welcome! 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 if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. And we do a live chat every Wednesday; hope you can join us for that!
