Hello all, I always wanted to write. Seriously write. When I was younger I had other things on my mind, and needed to pay the bills - like most young people. Consequently writing took a back seat. Then I got married and had kids, and everything (including my own sanity) went in the back. I'm not willing to wait any longer. 37 aint old, but old enough. The bills, ever larger, still need paying but I can start writing in my spare time. I've decided that writing is something I really want to do, and do properly, and I want to get started now. I have no shortage of ideas - in fact one problem I know I will have is deciding which ones to work on! My interest - in terms of writing - is almost exclusively in fiction novels. No interest in poetry (though I have dabbled in song lyrics, which I consider similar). Fantasy fiction, science fiction, suspense, horror. That's my brief intro. I'll put more in my bio later Looking forward to participating in these forums. It looks like a very active community.
