    Good morning, fellow writers

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by LadyErica, Nov 30, 2018.

    I remember sitting in school twenty years ago, and having the dreadful yearbook passed on to me. I've written all my life. Love to write. I was in a hospital once, borrowed a laptop, and wrote for nearly five hours straight. Hospitals are boring. :) But there I was, sitting with a yearbook in front of me, and all I had to do was write a little greeting. That's it. A couple of lines. How hard can it be?

    It's terrible. That's why I don't do the whole Christmas card thing. I can't do it. Stories, that I can do. Books? No problem! A few lines of greetings? No. Just... no. It either comes off as a stupid, generic cliché, or I ramble on and on. So yeah, hi. I'm Erica. Pleased to meet you.

    (Phew, done!) :oops:

    Thanks. :) Inspiration is easy enough, but I lack other writers to talk to. I hope to find that here. :)

    Hi @LadyErica, and welcome from me.

    I am exactly the same - two novels finished and three half finished, can't write a ******* birthday card to save my life.
