I'm a few weeks new and thought I'd formally introduce myself instead of just lurking in the chat room. I'm Val Dante. The people in the chat have already just started to call me Dante...I write paranormal, romance, adventure, and dabble a little in fantasy.
21, Welcome!

Hi Val! :wave: Welcome to FM!

What a fun combination of genres! (Though I'll admit fantasy is my favorite. :wink: )

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
22, Welcome to the Forums

Chat is great; the interaction with writers is mvitvating, encoraging, helpful as well as being immediate; but you can also gain a lot from the forums too.

Wander around and see what takes your fancy, or ask a questions and get us to point you ro a forum or two.

23, Hello Dante

Welcome to Forward Motion! I'm glad you came out of lurking. The boards are another great place to find valuable information. Take your time navigating the site because it can be confusing when you first start out. And...we're also updating. So if you can't find something, please ask.

Welcome, again.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate it! Going to the chat actually pulled me out of writers block. It was wonderful, really. I more than doubled how much I had written on a new story after a single trip to the forums. I need to make it to one of the Think Tanks though. I never seem to be able to get on in time for it. Thanks again for the awesome welcome!

Hi there! Nice to see you posting in the forums. Take a look around, ignore the dust and moving of forums. It should be a much easier place to use once all the changes are made. If you have any questions, just ask!

Hey, Dreamer. So...I'm curious...what sort of changes are being made, exactly? I'm just curious.

Mostly reorganizing to make the site easier to use. Deleting old threads, moving boards together to make it easier to find topics; that sort of thing. :smiley:
