Hello there I'm new here; a young woman from the Netherlands who's now finally sitting down for what she's loved doing most since she was 10 years old: writing. I've been putting down a lot of scribbles, scrawls, notes and the likes, and recently I have started on something I hope to work out as my first real book - if I get to finish it, that is I hope to find inspiration a plenty here, ways to improve my writing and of course kindred spirits As for my daily life: I live with my girlfriend in a small and quiet town. We have fourteen children - well, children too us: they're a lovely bunch of bunnies (2), rats (2), hamsters (6) and goldfish (4) - oh, and a bunch of shrimp and small fish ^^ During the day I work at a Costumer Service Desk, which gives me plenty of time to write when no one's calling in, and in the evening and weekend I usually just stay at home with my partner while cleaning the house, playing with the animals, writing, drawing, watching movies, making clothes and enjoy life in general. My life may be a simple one, but I love it nonetheless I write fiction, mostly fantasy though my latest scribbling has a good deal of reality in it - I'm enjoying it much more than I thought I would Anything else you wish to know? Just ask ^^ Oh, and before I forget - English is not my native tongue, so improvements are most definitely welcome.
