Hi all, Please excuse this blank stare, I'm a bit overwhelmed here. You see I didn't really intend to come down this road. Of course I didn't intend to become a Computer Nerd either, all I wanted was a word processor because my fingers kept getting tangled up as they tried to navigate the treacherous keys on the typewriter. That was back in my first life when I was learn'n how to be a Sunday Speaker. Yet somehow I morphed into a Computer Nerd and started a whole new life.

Now, or rather for the last few years, I've had this SF novel that keeps crawling around inside my head. I tried to ignore it at first, thinking it would just go away, but it keeps growing (and possibly breeding). I'm fairly certain It's (they're?) planning some sort of dramatic escape (hope it doesn't hurt too much), or worse, complete assimilation . I can already feel myself morphing again.

Is there anyone here who can help me???

Welcome! I can give you advice based on my own experience. Yes, it hurts when they break free, but it's better to let them out before they damage your insides. Good luck!

Welcome aboard. Grab something out of the magic fridge and come join us on the back deck. It's quite a view.

This place is cool, I found a tunnel leading to some writing lessons which were awesome. I found so many great tips I'm fairly buzzing with excitement. Had to get past a few obnoxious monsters, but they're nothing to worry about, all bite and no growl.

Just watch out for the spiders. They're telepathic.

Welcome!

So you think "go away, please" thoughts at the telepathic spiders, and off they go.

Whoa, did you say spiders? Monsters, okay, dragons, okay, but spiders? If they leave you think "go away please" then they should be is a galaxy far... far..., far far away by now.

The fridge is great though, and the bowling alley, except for the wormhole.
