I have been quite a few years out of the writing game, but my wife, Bekanator, has convinced me that this is the place to reinvigorate my love of writing fiction. I read voraciously and NEED to write something of my own again. I'm excited to join this community, since Bekanator reccomends it so highly. Also, she seems to think that the people here are pretty awesome, so at least I might make some friends. Hello!

Now Utah's gonna have to instate a new War rule: No fraternizing with the opponents. 

Welcome HowewoH. Read, write, workshop and enjoy.

Thank you for the welcome, R.Moon.

 

But don`t worry! We already had this discussion and Bekanator expects me to vote against her if I think the other story is better. Also, she never lets me read any of her stuff, so it`s unlikely that I`ll even know which story is hers anyway.

Hello and welcome!

I'm confused, I thought fraternizing was welcomed?

Fraternizing is encouraged, but not when it comes to WAR.

Welcome.  We hear great things about you and expect you to live up to the hype.

Welcome, Mr. Howe! Great to have you on board (I'm surprised Mrs. Jones-Howe never lets you read her work; she is very talented.)

Maybe that's why I don't share. The other couple is Jessica + Sean. I'm right, right?

Welcome Howie. Beck, Id love it of my husband was a writer too. I have to beg  him to reAd my stuff. he's a news photog though, so a bit of an artist with the camera, that same finicky sensibility. . And,really, Avery and Sean?Is that true?

Welcome! Don't worry, I don't let my boyfriend read my writing, either. We just don't want you to know how goddamn amazing we are, it tends to intimidate men.

Kidding.

Also, there was already a lit-couple? Fuck. That's confusing. Since I don't have any social media other than Twitter, I always get so confused when couples use the same website. It feels incestous to me... which probably isn't that much of a change for LR, so it probably won't be a problem.

@Cove My boyfriend is a photog, too. Sometimes I think it may be more difficult than writing, since you have to deal with actual, you know, things. Not strictly imagination.

Welcome!  I hope you like it here, new best friend. 

Also, no matter how often you mention it, or how obvious it seems to you, basically no one will know you and Beka are married.  So don't worry about any awkward moments!  :)
