Okay, I'll admit it! I'm a NEWBIE. I registered a long time ago but got lost in the Maw. Recently rescued by an intriguing man in a battered old freighter, I've found my way back to the Boards and I'm just starting to post ... after lurking for quite a while. Name: Mari Interests: Mainly EU and Saga, but a good story is a good story! Why am I here? I've been a fan since, oh, long before you were born... (most of you) and I love the huge library of diverse fiction that has grown from George's original work. There are so many talented writers out there with wonderful ideas! I have writing aspirations as well, but nothing on my C:drive is ready for posting just yet. Thanks for giving Newbies a place to meet some of you and collect sage advice!
