I am thrilled that so many of you are willing to post your writing on the WIP thread. Every time I read something someone has posted, it makes me even more excited about the whole writing process.

There's a creative energy in the air. Can you feel it? I sure can.

The Chatterbox is fun, and an important way for us to learn to accept and trust each other, and that helps us feel safe enough to post our WIP's, which is a big part of the business of this forum.

For example: "That stinks!" "Boy, you've really got a sick mind." "I know a good psychiatrist who might help you." "Why don't you take up finger painting instead of writing?"

Wait, those are things I sometimes say to myself after reading over a story I've just finished. What looks fine today can smell bad tomorrow, then look decent the day after that. This seems to be a common affliction among writers.

There is excitement here!!

This is a good place.

Dick, I've said those words to myself as well.

Finger painting, Dick? I hadn't thought about that one. A recipe book, perhaps? Smile

I have been too busy lately to do much writing, but the support of this forum keeps me yearning to get back into it!!

I know many here value the input from other writers. It is not always an entire blurb, but a word or sentence that can trigger ideas.
Also of importance, is asking help with a problem. The response is great.

So many here are willing to help! I've learned more about dangling participles in the last couple of days than I probably ever learned in school. And I think it's starting to finally sink in.

Dangling participles. Every time I hear that I think of icicles, and I freeze.
