I couldn't come up with a name so I picked the first thing that came to my attention. I use to write a lot. I was an avid reader. I was working on fiction and nonfiction, I was writing for a woman's advice column and really climbing but about 3yrs ago I had a bad reaction to a muscle relaxer, it appearently relaxed my heart a bit more than it was suppose to which lead to oxygen deprivation... bla bla bla and my writing career came to a screeching halt and I couldn't get through a paragraph without rereading it 5 times so my office of books became a ghost of dusty gray souls, trapped. Anyways, the dr suggested I had a learning disability and I refused to let that be the case so I went back to college, started from the bottom and worked my way back up the know-how ladder. I still struggle with reading and writing but after 2 years of writing essays and scraping knowledge out of text books I'm no longer in the brain fog that I was once in. Now I'm reaching out trying to find a little support in the things that once made me happy and desire to make me happy again. And looking forward to NaNoWriMo for the time in over 3yrs. I know it's not till November but I'm finally looking forward to it and that's something I've been really missing. Oh and I'm Kay, not quite 40yo single mom of a teen and tween living in the Pacific NW (Oregon), outdoor adventurer, Netflix surfer, working towards a MAT and foodie on a hobby farm.
