Hello, I'm Miss C Earnshaw for the purposes of this forum (that not being my real name or my marital status) and it is less than 6 hours since I last wrote. After years working in an industry where I came to realise that the men I worked for were morally bankrupt and consequently in a job I no longer enjoyed, I've turned more and more to the writing that has always been a part of my life. I have tried to give it up many times and concentrate on my career but something drives me to keep on doing it. After a difficult time in life I've decided to take my writing seriously, see if I have what it takes to become published and even better find an audience who will like my work enough to allow me to keep my soul from the devil (or quit my current profession). Right now I'm not sure if I'm deluded, brave, insane or all three - probably all three. I thought I'd find some fellow writers out there on the internet for support, encouragement and advice for when the going gets tough, so here I am.
