Hi everyone, I thought i'd drop in here to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. I've joined several sites but this one seems the best and its good to see a fair few Brits here as well.... When I was at school I was quite a prolific writer in factual articles for local newspapers etc and short fiction stories. Lets just say that when I wrote them, technology was having an electric typewriter and carbonated paper was high-tech! Since then i've hardly written except for a few technical training manuals for past jobs, but all the time wishing I had the courage and time to start writing again. Over the past few years i've suffered with depression which tends to come and go (triggered by a bereavement), but i've found putting time into writing again is giving me something to enjoy and get motivated. I find my mind buzzing now again and keep making loads of notes as ideas come and go with projects to write about. Anyway, that's enough from me for now!
