Welcome to the Team: Jean Oram

It's hard to believe it's been almost a year since we started From the Write Angle. Back when we first started brainstorming, there was one person we all knew we'd love to have on the team, but time constraints wouldn't allow her to participate.

Times change, and we're thrilled to welcome Jean Oram to the FTWA team!

Jean is the Super Moderator over at AgentQuery Connect (seriously, her title is Super Mod). She's the only green person in the chatroom, but has been at AQ since 2007, making her the most experienced "greenie" ever. She'll never admit it, but she really is "super"—super-friendly, super-helpful, and super-skilled.

When it comes to writing, Jean believes it should be fun. If it isn't, stop doing it or find a way to make it fun. She loves writing because it's different every time you sit down and there are so many things to learn. There is always a way to improve your work.

We're all looking forward to Jean's first post a week from today, launching a monthly Five for Friday series.

Welcome to FTWA, Jean!

Thank you for allowing me to join you on From The Write Angle. I am "super" thrilled to be joining many of my favourite writer friends here as well as getting to know the wonderful FTWA readers.

Thank you for the very warm welcome as well. I can't wait until next Friday's post which will be five tips on creating memorable characters.

Thanks, Darke. Would those happen to be Oreos in the air? YUM! I can always use an Oreo!

"She'll never admit it, but she really is "super"—super-friendly, super-helpful, and super-skilled."

Thanks, Cali and RS. I was mighty disappointed when I couldn't swing joining back in 2011, but now I can! Yay! I hope I can add a little something to this great group and informative blog.
