    A Kiwi girl here.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Girl with a pencil, Mar 29, 2015.

    Hello everyone, I'm a retired social worker and I live in a small rural town in dairy farming country in New Zealand. I suppose I've been writing ever since I was in school and even though some of the stuff I wrote back then was fairly awful I seem to have stayed with enjoying the process of painting pictures with words.
    And of course I like to see how others paint pictures with words too.

    A fellow Kiwi. Actually I'm British but moved to Auckland a couple of months ago. Welcome. And shouldn't you be watching the cricket?

    I don't have television. Once I got rid of the thing I found I suddenly had so much time to do other things I want to do.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Take a moment to check out our New Member Guide, it will take you through the forum's rules and layout.

    I'm pretty sure you'll find all kinds of word painting around here, in all possible flavours! So take a dive among the threads and see what you can find. ;)

    Have fun!

    I love the New Zealand area, I met a woman who lived in Vanauatu but also lived in New Zealand.

    Welcome!

    Always nice to see international representation, and find out where people come from (Chainspinner I had no idea you were down there) ... on a self interested note, I'm writing a character who's a Catholic priest from New Zealand, so if you're interested in being pinged for research let me know :p
