PostSubject: Hullo Folks   September 4th 2008, 12:20 pm

Keegan R. Gilmore here,
Started rummaging through the archives of forummotion.com, and ran across this little corner of the planet. I figured I'd sign up, check it out, so on and so forth. I'm actually working on building a writing community of my own, starting with the forums and working my way up to websites, publications, and headaches. The forums have only been alive for a month thus far, but we'll see how well they weather.

Anyhow, enough on that, I'll give you a quick rundown.

I'm 21 (today)
I am, or attempt to be, a poet. Mostly because I can't concentrate on anything more lengthy.
I write at eliteskills.com, but mostly now, I'm turning my attention to my website (thehabitation.tk).
Aside from that, I'm happily married with three wonderful kittens, and stuck in Jacksonville, Florida. The sweaty sub-groin region of the united states.
I'm in the Navy, and do practically nothing worth note, though if you really must know, I'm certain I could manage to spew a bit about it.

Hmmm..

That seems to be about it, if I missed anything I'll remember promptly after hitting the "post" button.

I hope so, although, admittedly, I'm also here to get an idea about how another writing forum is run, so I can fine tune my own.

Oh well, double dipping is not a crime.

Hey hey hey! Another Floridian! I used to live down in Gainesville, but I moved to Mississippi two years ago. My cousins live in Jacksonville, though.
Glad you decided to join us! See you on the boards and in the chatbox!

Definately not a floridian. I actually hail from Washington State.

Just stuck here for a time. Very Happy

Washington, huh? Cool! Guess that means I'm still the only Floridian around here. Well, Florippian. But whatever.
Jacksonville isn't my favorite place in the state, but parts of it are nice.

Oh, and I forgot to mention this before:

Hi, I'm Novel-Goddess, but everybody around here knows me as Novel. I'm on all the time and check my email every three seconds, so you can always reach me if you want to run stories or poems or whatnot by me or just chat.
My characters (especially the infamous Ray) love to pop in and out of the threads and chatbox, so expect to see them around. Don't worry though, they won't bite. Well...Okay, sometimes they do. But just ignore them.

Once again, glad you decided to join us here at the Crazy Writer's Asylum! Oh...I mean the Writer's Draft!

Washington is TOTALLY better than Florida. Not as much of that icky sun...:p

And welcome to the boards Keegan. 21 and married...god, that scares me. I'll be 21 in 4 months. Ek!

The fact that you have cats makes you rock. Im sure JB will agree.

Pfft. The sun rocks. Although for outsiders it can be a bit daunting. Razz Lol

I've never been to Washington State, though. The only things I know about WA are what I got from Twilight. What's it like up there?

Classy.

Full of culture.

It smells wonderful (except Tacoma) and it's never too hot.

It rains often, though not as hard as Florida.

Very liberal state.

Lots and lots and lots of trees and mountains and rivers and nature.

People are (or at least seem) a lot more motivated in Washington then they are here. I think it's the weather in Florida, it's stifling at best and makes even going to the post office seem a daunting task.

Oh well.

Don't judge Florida just by Jacksonville. Jacksonville sucks. It's dirty and gross.
Gainesville, however, is quite nice.
*shrug*
Maybe it's just because I'm a native Floridian, but heat doesn't bother me. And I really love those afternoon storms. Hurricane season is a bit....eck. But you get used to that.
Tip: Don't tape your windows. It's a surefire way to get laughed at. There's a running joke that you can always tell who's new to the state when you look at windows during hurricane season. Razz

Oh, and contrary to popular belief...
Florida is NOT the South. Maybe direction-wise, but culture wise....ha. The panhandle is, but that's the only part. It's affectionately named "Flora-Bama."
Central Florida, where I hail from, is like the North. It's full of Yanks.
South Florida....that's all Northern Cuba.

We they DO have grits, though! Whoo! (gotta stop saying "we!" I live in MS now! Ah!)

Hahaha, yeah...sometimes I get territorial and defensive of my home state. Very Happy

Welcome! My dad was in the navy, too- we had to bear the heat when he was transferred to Florida. Not a pretty thing.

Anyway, hope you like it here and get some inspiration for your own site!

Welcome! And happy belated birthday! Sorry I wasn't around to welcome you the day you joined... Usually I would be. But with school and swimming, I just don't have time.

ANYway, I hope you enjoy it here!
