You know, I always hate to comment on covers, because like any artwork, the opinion is in the eye of the beholder. 

However, in this case, I do tend to agree with those who have commented on the title font. I would also mention to take notice of the covers posted by those who expressed opinions. :o

Good Morning!

I love the idea of a Newbie Support Thread, or a Class of 2015 thread. I'm so new, I'm still trying to navigate this forum! Is there a tutorial on formatting a post, inserting a signature, etc?

I haven't pubbed yet, and have three WIPs at the moment. I work a full-time job in a mental health agency, a part-time job as a private practitioner, and run two small businesses from home. Fitting in writing time is really a struggle! My dream is to dump the full time agency work, as it's horribly stressful.

One of my businesses is publishing a local, educational magazine for women. The other is a health and fitness coach. I love both of those things, and the private practice work. Writing is my long-term plan to carry me through retirement.

Someone asked earlier if you would rather work for a windfall of money or win the lottery. Personally, I'd rather win the lottery! I have finally learned about myself that I HATE the hustle of sales, deadlines, someone looking over your shoulder, and working outside the home. I'm an artist and would rather draw and paint, work in my garden, knit, crochet, arrange flowers, do needlework, sew, and create cool things, and do geneology research, and go antiquing from time to time. It just seems I always have a do-list a mile long related to my jobs or businesses. Deadlines cause panic attacks, and worrying about paying bills paralyzes me.

I've always had stories and characters in my head. I'm learning how to release them and let them tell their stories. I love it! Hopefully, there will still be time in my dream life to pursue all my other creative hobbies.
