Welcome to FW! I'm delighted that God sent you this way! My favorite genre is children's stories too (not only to write but to read) I tried to check out your book but couldn't get any sound. The illustrations are awesome though! I'm working on trying to self-publish my first kids book. I finally found an illustrator and am hoping it will be out by the end of the summer.
That's one cool thing about this site is that there is a diversity of genres. Something for everyone including kids', sci-fi, Biblical fiction, testimonials, devotions, poetry, romance and nonfiction.The members are quite diverse as well. We have member that are teens and others that are grandparents. Also some are just finding their niche in writing while others have published books.
This incredible site is filled with amazing people who genuinely want to help others be the best writer possible and all that, plus some wonderful Christian fellowship. This is like a family to me and has given me more than I could have dreamed of when I first joined three years ago.
I've made some dear, sweet friends from all over the States to Australia, Africa, England, Thailand and Latvia. These aren't just casual friendships but close friends, many of whom I talk or text each day.
The forums are a great place to get to know one another. The Water Cooler is a place to chill and talk about anything from the weather to just saying howdy. There are a couple of small groups who love and support each other. The Pacific Coast Rest Stop or the Southern Porch can be found in that section. (You don't need to be on the Pacific Coast or from The South to pop in) The prayer Forum offers an opportunity to pray with others or ask for your own prayer requests or share some joys. The Open Forum is the best place to find writing related threads.
The weekly challenge is probably the most popular place at FW. You do need to be a paying member to enter, though starting in January they began to offer Silver members (non-paying) four credits to enter the challenge which can be used in a row or spread out over the year. I have learned so much from feedback I've received here. We are on a a mini break right now, but will start back up July 11. There is some great reading material though that you might want to check out now.
Have fun exploring. Feel free to ask any questions or join the discussions. But most of all have fun!
