Hey Komal,

Thanks for the friend invite.  What do you write?  I write fiction, usually short stories.  I do  have a couple of novels in progress.  My goal this year is to be more organized in my writing, complete more pieces and get into a regular submission routine.  And you?

Komal, Welcome to the novelist group! 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!
