    J.M. Hi there Word Cloud members. I've just registered and wanted to introduce myself. Having accessed The Writers' Workshop for ideas and resources I thought it was time I found a good writers' forum. It looks like there's some great writing and supportive feedback happening here. I look forward to reading your posts and more. I am an unpublished (creative) writer (published in academic work) and have completed an 'autofiction' genre novel recently that I've been working on over the last 2 years or so. I used to write loads of short stories when I finished an English degree years ago and always wanted to get back into it with hopes of finishing and publishing a novel. So here I am. Looking forward to getting to know you!

      Monica Handle Welcome J.M. Like you, I joined recently, and I'm also published in academic circles but not in creative fiction (apart from one self-published bit of fun a while ago). This looks like the place to learn and get some support - hope you enjoy the various forums.
