Hello I am 39 and have always had a passion for writing. Until recently I was stifling the urge and not really doing anything about it. I was self conscious and didn't want to allow anyone a glimpse of what I thought may be potentially embarrassing. Today I really don't care what anyone thinks. I am who I am, a work in progress. I guess I consider myself a rough draft! I write for myself as a release and as a form of expression. I am working on a story that may develop into a novel at some point in my life. I really enjoy just getting on my laptop and creating a work from a blank page. It doesn't matter if it is a short story about an event, something I am feeling or a how to piece. I starting writing for an article service and when they were accepted it was satisfying. I have a blog and it is really just a depository for my ramblings. I created it as a way to post my work and see what people think.I hope to someday look back and see progress. In the future once I learn a little about proper forum usage I may post a link and hopefully get some feedback. I want to work on the craft and hope I can get some help here as well as be of help to others. Oh ya GO STEELERS!
