Welcome J. Doe!
« on: July 02, 2012, 03:06:12 PM »

Welcome to MWF, J. Doe! Take a moment and introduce yourself. What do you write? Are you published? Who is your favorite author?

Enjoy your stay!

Thank you! Glad to have found MWF.

Gosh. Well, I write for the mystery/thriller genres. I'm a younger writer, not even out of school yet, so advice and ConCrit on anything I may post is much needed and always taken into consideration.
 I wish I were published. My favorite author changes with the seasons, really, but right now I'd have to say Vince Flynn.

J. Doe?  Do you know how many warrants we have for Jane Doe?   ;D

Welcome to the site, J. Doe.  You're going to find that there are a lot of really helpful and experienced people on this site.

And you're getting a good start on your writing if you're not even out of school yet; I wish I had joined the site when I was that age.

Of course there wasn't an internet around back then.  And computers took up whole rooms instead of something you could stick in your backpack.

Dang, I'm even making myself feel older than the hills.  LOL

Welcome,

Linda

Welcome, J. Doe.

Don't feel bad, Linda.

When I was his age, there was no such thing as a computer--except ENIAC.

What I find interesting is that Linda has J. Doe as a girl and Dave as a boy.  Many of the blogs that I visit seem to assume the same with woman bloggers addressing their readers as wimmin' and guys as guys.  Will the real J. Doe please stand up.......No, you don't have to tell us J. Doe...we're just glad that you are taking your writing seriously and know that you are always welcome here.

I hated to read in school and didn't start writing until my 40s many, many years ago...did I say many years?

Old Bill

Happy 4th everyone!!!!  Be careful playing with fireworks.

You know, Old Bill, I didn't even think about it.  Well, except for a second when I thought about how we had even more warrants for John Doe.   ::)

Interesting point.  Now you have me wondering if it's a Jane or a John.  Not that it makes a difference, but I'm nosy.  That's a requirement for cops, as you would know Old Bill.
