Hi. I am a 37yr old lady frm South Africa. I'v always been drawn 2 writing short stories but neva took it seriously, especially since my peers thought I was just strange. Of late I'v been writing a lot of poetry also, altho they tend 2 end up as prayers mor than anything. I'v always found writing 2 b a release mechanism 4 me; a way 2 express emotions that I don't even fully understand or know how 2 deal with. Anyway, I'm looking 4ward 2 meeting loads of ppl & drawing stax of knowledge frm the mor experienced writers!
