    I have been a buyer in construction (with a short foray into fish buying for a year) and after a bit of a career crash I am now a project coordinator for a windows manufacturer. I am waiting to see what post lockdown brings.

    During the huge depression I was in during my two years of not finding work/finding work and having the offer withdrawn/finding work and talking job with a stupid long commute and only lasting a month I was at the roller disco with my daughter and I had the epiphany: Get back to writing. I had always loved it, it always worked. So on August 1st 2019 I launched Nicely Put, on online blog for politics, music, movies, life, and anything. I have now 63 articles and a small membership. I have written for listverse but found the user base very specific and unwelcoming to my genre, as they were very horror/mystery based and that is not my bag and while the editor liked my stuff, it was not their demographic.
    I have now started my first novel. It is a first person fictional piece about a young man in trouble and dealing with the loss of God, dormant and unaddressed loss of faith common to many young people raised in a strict C of E setting. I am not religious but I was sent to a very strictly dogmatic primary school (I once heard the headmaster talk about "the two brown boys in class 3") so it is a phenomenon I am into.

    So since that day I have refound the catharsis writing brings and it has really worked for me. I want to get more done so I am joining you with a view to learning from people and one day helping others do the same. So far this site has been amazing to be a part of and I look forward to future dealings
