*taps on screen* how does this work?... Hello?
« on: January 31, 2017, 09:42:33 PM »
OK, so I'm not a forum user. The closest I've come is a discussion board on Goodreads. I hope you can forgive me if I do this wrong.

Hi. I'm Ann. I'm a mom, a wife and new to the writing thing. I've been at it for a little over a year and I love it so far. Even the "crappy" work, like revising. :) It's been a pretty good year. I've written a couple rough drafts and started a couple more. The big news and the reason I'm here is, I have a finished manuscript! Tons of drafts and two beta rounds and now I feel like I'm ready for the next step.

I can't wait to dive into the community and I hope I can be a helpful noob.

Thanks for letting me join!

Yeah :)  I'm currently writing a YA, SCI-FI. My word count is around 60k right now and the end is in sight. I hope to finish within the next month or so.

My first MS, also a YA, SCI-FI, is waiting to be repaired and finished, so I've never reached the point you have. That is something to be proud of.
