More than anything, I find my own reaction to the discovery of this forum, intriguing. Now approching middle age (ha!) I haven't more than dabbled in writing, though I've always loved it and dreamt I could. My issue is always inspiration, as well as follow through. I'm one of those with the actions of, but without the excuse of Attention Deficit Disorder. My interests run the gamut from dogs, to politics to fitness and food. My own ugly truth to tell a writers forum is that I have trouble reading fiction because I often lose interest and want to move on to other things. My arrival here was spurred on by my new intention of starting a fiction blog for other food fans. Whether I write these stories myself (which scares the crap out of me) or find others to help, this forum has brought a new level of excitement for writing to me. So, thanks!
