Hi Kate, Greetings from Canada! I appreciate your e-mail and am greatly looking forward to getting involved with She Writes. One can often feel lonely as a writer and It's encouraging to know there is such a huge group of others out there supporting one another in their avid interest. I look forward to hearing from you and other members again. Elizabeth. P.S. I confess that I absolutely love huge English words like 'obstreperous.' 'Termagant' is another one I just learned this week. Antique books, which are a passion of mine, are a great way to learn new words!
