Make of the title what you will.

So I've been looking for some kind of writers community for a while and somehow it's been very difficult (so many inactive web pages). Google brought me here and I hope something will also keep me here. :)

I'm Milomex, call me anything (I do mean anything). For those who find gender important, I'm female. I'm also not a serial killer, so that's a good thing, right? I have a talent for doing nothing at all and pride myself with the amount of writer's blocks I've overcome (many, many, many).
Introducing myself isn't my strongest point, apparently.

So, hi!

Can't have a fruit salad without any apples.

Hello Milomex,

Welcome to YWS! Good to know you're not a serial killer ;) So what kind of writing do you like to do? :)

Also, If you have any questions about the site feel free to ask me, or anyone really. If you're looking for a long-term writers community, then you've come to the right place. Ask a lot of us, you'll find there was something here that kept us too. Me for example, I've been here for 5 years already.

~ As always, Audy

I do lots of different kinds of writing I guess. :) I mostly lean towards fantasy though, but I have my exceptions. Other than that it's mostly short stories (in between working on a larger story) and poetry now and then when inspired.

5 years is a long time! That's a good sign then ;)

Hola! I saw you were looking for some apples. While yu're hunting for 'em, here's some walnuts for a lovely Waldorf!

Walnuts are always welcome! :)

I see there are enough volunteers if I ever get lost here. :wink:

Thanks for all the welcomes!

It's not about the weight of what's spoken.
It's about being heard.
