I've been trying to make contact since 4 pm. My Skype was screwed up. I have no idea how to get in touch with thisSunday meeting on skype.

Hi Bieke,

Thanks for your emails, introduction and welcome. I appreciate the time you've given.

Thank you for that insight.  We can't lose site of the joy of creating.  I love the last part - the notification on your tracker and your reaction.

Thank you Bieke for your response to my bio! I wrote this then felt sily about it so that was good to hear your feedback.  I was feeling decidedly rebellious about writing another bio, nothing to do with the privilage of posting one on WA but because I'm, as usual, feeling like I've failed somehow with my most recent output as a writer.  I need to look squarly at this defect of mine that tells me I'm never enough in this arena.  Perhaps one of us will blog on this, I'd be curious to see how others might have overcome this ridiculousness or are still fighting the battle!  Anyway, you cheered me up for sure, and that's what I love about this site, the support.

Hi Bieke

Thanks for the welcome, I think I am the latest new kid on the block. I am enjoying the experience of finding my way around the site.

Welcome, Bieke, I've found the group friendly and most helpful. I know you will as well.

Oops ...that should be Chris Hadfield!

Not quite last ...the dreaded time difference again!

A big welcome to Writers Abroad, Bieke. I look forward to reading your work and getting to know you.

(As for Ontario - my son-in-law hails from Kitchener and Chris Bradfield ( The Canadian Astronaut ) from Ontario too I believe - must be a good place!)
