I am 29 years old and have 9 year old twin boys and a 4 year old daughter. I have been writing for a long time. Even at primary school I would write stories although mine have a much more adult theme to them now. I also re-write songs, generally for special friends special birthdays and such but they always go down well. I have been working on a few short stories, my main problem with "short" stories is that they end up too long. I was working on something much longer but with one thing or another have left it alone for ages. I recently wrote a poem for my little sister who is away at University and she had it published somewhere. I'm still waiting for the details of where though. I work long hours so rarely get the time for working on things but I am hoping to get some motivation by being here.
