Greetings from a Site Newbie! Can't Post

Hi Everyone!

Iím Barbara and a longtime subscriber to P&W, yet just found my way here after finishing the Nov/Dec edition and seeing the great last page write-up. Oye, not sure what rock Iíve been hiding under. Now that Iím here, I love it. Did a bit of surfing about and reading some archived material yesterday Ė what a fantastic wealth of knowledge and group of writers!

Iím a writer in Ohio and have been blessed over this year to reconnect with my writing craft and get my ďmojoĒ back. I started writing poetry as a kid (Iíll always think of it as my first love) and moved on to short fiction once I hit college. Iíve dabbled in essay, but find that short story is where my main focus is now.

One of my goals for 2011 is to get myself into a more organized gear and submit more for publication (and the collection of rejection slips that will follow). Iíve already read some great tips here on the tracking and steady volume people circulate. Iím also looking for new summer writing conf options. Iíve attended the Antioch Writersí Workshop for the past two years and am looking to branch out a bit. So far, Iím checking out Kenyon, Chautauqua (think it is a long weekend) and Gettysburg from word of mouth recommendations.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Welcome to the forum! I'm in the same boat in terms of my writing goals for 2011. I want to solidify a fair amount of writing credits by the end of the year. Even if I end up with only a few new credentials, that's a few more than I would have had before. The great thing about being so passionate about writing is that it doesn't matter how long it takes you to reach your goal, since the journey itself, regardless of the amount of rejection slips it takes to get there, is a really satisfying one.

Be sure to keep us posted on your progress!
