Hey everybody, I am excited to be a new member, and meet other writers. Hopefully someone will help me learn the ropes; otherwise I might make a fool of myself, but hey if I do, then we will all have something to laugh about. Anyway, please refer to me as Dawn as laughing over my first name becomes rather tiring after 22 years, and I like to move on to the next joke. I am a not so single, single mom. I say this because it takes a village to raise a child, and yes, that is how our children have always been raised in this family, which means more love and support! And of course, I am a writer which is why I am here. I am unpublished right now, but that will eventually change. Right now I am focusing on writing for myself as I go through surgeries and such, and after I am well, I will consider writing as a professional. On this note, please feel free to critique my writing and grammar so that I may learn and grow, but do it with consideration, as some of my errors may actually be from my typing. Most of my surgeries and medical conditions are in my hands. But that will not stop me from expressing my creativity in written format!!! Enough of that! I look forward to interacting with all of you and sharing knowledge and tools. So, in the spirit of expression, let's write!
