    Welcome to the madhouse! :D
    That's an interesting list of jobs and hobbies there. I feel like you have been around a while, am I correct? It'd be nice so I can diagnose get to know you.
    How recently did you start writing? Have you ever been published? What sort of stuff do you write or would like to write?
    Since you've already got our tour guide I'll just give you this lovely free uniform:

    A while yes. I am working on a novel just now it is a sequel to my first one. They are sort of detective stories really. I have written a couple of short stories and quite a few poems, a lot of which have been published in an online magazine called I.T http://internationaltimes.it/.

    My first novel has been submitted to a publisher, waiting to hear back, breath not held.

    Thanks for the welcome. I am a little unsure where to begin to offer some 'constructive criticism' I have commented on a few poems so far.
