    Hello!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Writay, Nov 9, 2013.

    Hi there! Just signed up, and want to say hi to all :)

    I'm old but I don't feel it. I wish I had started 20 years ago being serious about writing but I never was - there would always be time later. Something happened (nothing very serious :p ) a few years ago to inspire me to go forth and be committed to writing and here I am, attempting to hold words close to my brain and my keyboard.

    I love language, love finding the right way to describe something, and I love the fact that stories exist and mean so much to people - it's really quite fantastic the whole thing, isn't it?

    I am currently working on the first draft of a mystery, hoping to some day be published but on my hopeful journey there, I am learning so much every time I sit down to type. Being in a community of writing people is always inspiring and I am looking forward to interesting threads and discussions here, and to making friends :)

    I think this describes many of us. Life and the need to put food on the table tends to happen. ;)

    We shall get along famously! I am of like mind.

    Welcome to the forum, Writay. :)

    I hope you find knowledge and inscription herein. I hope even more that you grow to be a source if it.

    Please have a look through the Forum Rules, and the FAQ as a start.

    Have fun! :D

    Welcome to the forum. There are a few of us who started writing later in life. :)

    welcome aboard!

    i doubt you're old at all, compared to me [unless you're over 75;)], and i'm not even the oldest member here:rolleyes:... i didn't become a serious writer till my early 40's, so know from experience that it doesn't matter when you start, only that you do...

    love and hugs, maia
