Hi. I'm new here. Not sure exactly what I plan to do, but thought joining this 'ere forum might be somewhere to start. I've spent a lot of time backpacking all over the world, and have built up a large collection of diaries. I'd like to 'do something' with them, but not sure what. I don't have dreams of writing them all into a book and becoming rich on it, but I do want to do something with them. I guess I'm hoping joining a forum like this will give me inspiration or ideas. [shrugs] I've started pulling out small anecdotes and writing them up as short stories. Dunno why! I'm actually finding that I enjoy it. I've not spent a lifetime as a frustrated writer, I'm new to it. When I feel brave enough, I'll p'raps put some of them up for review. Regards, biddy.
