A minor factoid: I am now a Writer. My first story sale will appear in the winter edition of Rosebud Magazine, available at Borders and Barnes & Noble at the end of this year.
The thoughts and advice you share in this forum--and the opportunity to see my words somewhere other than in my head here--played a substantial role in this small victory, and I thank you for that.
