    Hello

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Todd Carnes, May 26, 2015.

    Hello,

    My name is Todd.

    I'm 48, married & have four kids. Many moons ago (mostly when I was in school back in the dinosaur days) I used to write poetry (all sorts) and short fiction (mostly fantasy and/or science fiction), but then I joined the Navy. I spent twenty years traveling the world then retired in 2005. During that time I pretty much stopped writing. Since then I've held a variety of jobs and lived in several states, still without writing.

    Now, I want to change that. I think I'm going to try to start back up and "see if I still got it". :)

    Hey Todd! Glad to hear you want to try it again. I've taken a break myself for years too til recently. We need more poets on site. It's not my focus, but I'd like to see more discussions about it.

    Bram Stoker didn't write 'Dracula' until he was 50.

    I'm sure you have lots of creativity and imagination to share with us.

    Welcome aboard!

    I didn't know that about Bram Stoker. Thanks for the vote of confidence. :)
