    Glad to be here

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by aberdeen, Mar 30, 2014.

    I joined a few days ago and have already read a lot of the messages. I was never interested in writing when I was younger and had no idea I was any good at it. I am in my fifties now (better late than never) and want to see if I can make a decent living by writing essays on a variety of topics. I have written over a hundred so far, and my goal is to publish a collection of them. I look forward to sharing ideas and experiences with people from all over the world. I live in Connecticut, a hundred plus miles from New York City.

    Hi, aberdeen, and welcome to the forum! Please read the rules, participate, and have fun!

    It's good to see a new nonfiction writer here. We get lots of novelists and short story writers, but not very many essayists (though you will find a few). Having a variety of different kinds of writers around here helps! :)

    i'm sure i replied to you already, aberdeen [unless i was having a senior moment hallucination! o_O]...

    did you post this same message in another section, or on another writing site?... i mentioned that i lived in westport and have self-published a series of books containing my own essays, and offered to help you in any way i can...

    does that sound at all familiar?

    anyway, welcome aboard!

    love and hugs, maia

    [mystery solved!... just checked your other postings and found my reply/offer is in your 'anyone here write essays?' thread]
