Hi everyone, I'm stuck in my cell...er...office and have always dreamed of being a writer. I'd love to sit on a balcony with my laptop, overseeing the serenity of green fields littered with flowers and ponds. The scene would inspire me and calm my thoughts.... Okay this is getting a bit.... you know... but it's a great dream! Given the rise of ebooks through the 'iappstore', Kindle and the like, my only objective at present is to self-publish. That way I'm motivated knowing that something can be done with the end product. Time is so short that I couldn't imagine putting a tremendous effort into something that will end up in the rubbish. I've already got buds of stories on my blog and self-programmed ebook - 'anti-reality' on the app store (again, short stories that I haven't refined at all). I'm not here to advertise them so I will only provide links on request. Anyway, I'm happy to be here.
