Hi, Liz. I'm relatively new here, as well. I'm currently in academia (loosely defined, given our tenuous job situations), so if you want to talk about trying to balance academic and creative writing endeavors, feel free to email me (off list most likely, so that we don't force anyone to read through the comments who isn't interested).
Hallo, I'm Liz. Joined the forums half on a whim, and half after realizing I'm in need of "writerly" talk. I'm a grad student, so I can get all the academic discussion I want, but I'm not in an MFA, so the creative writing moments are few and far between. In between the classes, conferences, and papers (and those little things called day jobs) I write. Poetry mainly , prose occasionally, and I love toying with those textnovel things! Say what you want about online life, they can be fun for a quick ego boost and forcing oneself to just get a draft done. Trying to publish here and there, but I find the reading fees prohibitive, as it's all shoestrings here, so it's a limited effort for now.
So, yes, I'll be playing around on a few boards here and there. Say hi sometime, and let's talk! :)
