I took the plunge in the new year and joined the 500.
I'm not much of an online community joiner even though I've been using the Internet since Gopher and Usenet ruled (something to tell my grandkids many, many years from now).
However, I've enjoyed my time among you all and am having fun. Plus the writing challenges and feedback and all your support is pushing me to be a better writer and to achieve a lifelong dream.
When I sold my first article a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'm joining!
So thanks y'all from my little corner of Florida.
