Re: Hello out there!
I tend to be Science Fiction almost exclusively. It used to be exclusively, but this place has corrupted me a bit in that regard.
I'm rather surprised that no one else has been around to welcome you. This group is usually very good about that. You will find mostly intelligent and always congenial discussion here. The Mods won't allow anything else. Have you checked out the 75 and 300 word challenges? They are both found under the Aspiring Writer's tabs, under challenges. The 75 word challenge often has 50 entries or more and is held monthly. the 300 word challenge is held quarterly, and it has a tangible prize.
