    Welcome to the site, Kabby. I'm glad you liked Remains of the Day. If you get a chance, feel free to leave your comments in the Review a Book forum. I'd love to hear your ideas. By a strange coincidence, I have taken some hard knocks to the head in my time, too. Who knows, maybe concussion is causally related to an interest in literature.

    Hi, I'm James. I tried this once, but I guess my post got lost.

    I decided to get serious about my writing career last year. I published my first novel last May, and it got a glowing, starred Kirkus review and was named to their Best of 2018 list. So I figured, "Hey, I guess I'm pretty good at this. I should keep going."

    I live a very blue-collar existence. I don't have many friends interested in writing - or reading, for that matter. Though they are really supportive, I tend to compartmentalize my life as a writer. I don't talk about it a lot, and I figure that probably hinders my progress to a degree.

    Anyway, hope I find my groove here. I've never posted to a message board before, so forgive me if I'm behind the curve.

    Hi, I'm really not that good at introductions if truth be known. The reason why I am on here, to be honest, is to get feedback on stories that I am writing. If you want to have blood shooting out of your eyes, I got great news for you. My writing and grammar is so bad, that I will have that need covered for you. So please feel free to say hello and ask any questions you feel like asking. (I'm much better of answering questions about myself than what I am about telling myself. I know a disaster in the making.)

    Welcome gray. If your grammar is bad, try writing in the voice of a character who has bad grammar. You could be the next Mark Twain. On the other hand, I'm not sure you're going to find many people interested in being your editor here. But post a story--who knows?

    Hopefully my grammar isn't that bad that I need an editor. I usually read it out loud several times before it gets published. I more looking for ideas and suggestions.
