Hello from North Carolina! Excited to be here and meet others that share the same interest in writing that I do. I am a 28yo transplant to NC from Wisconsin, working in Tech Support right now. I guess I'm lucky in that way since I get to work from home in my PJs taking phone calls all day. Anyways, I used to write a lot when I was younger, and I do still journal (hand written and everything!). When I was in Middle School I even had a couple of poems I wrote published, but didn't progress beyond that. I grew up, and wrote less and less as life happened as it does to us all. Now that I'm somewhat settled in, I have a boyfriend of two years now, and I've found myself more and more as of late wanting to reconnect with some of those old hobbies that I used to enjoy so much. I used to love playing instruments, reading, writing, and drawing. I've started picking up a book more lately, and now I want to try and get back into the habit of writing. It would be amazing if I was able to one day make a living off of writing, but I'm not shooting for that per say right now. My immediate goal is just to get back into the habit of writing. That's why I've endeavored to journal more lately. I may not know what I want to write about, but I figure if I just put pen to paper and spew my thoughts out onto it, that it will become easier over time. Writing is like anything in that if you want to be good at it, then you need to make it a habit and practice make perfect. In either case, I look forward to getting to know some of you just a little better as I participate in these forums. I also hope that I'm able to grow myself as a writer and learn from y'all too. Take care!
