Hi, I am a new member who is closer to 40 than he would like to admit, and who hasn't written any substantial pieces since A level. A professional author on Google+ recently posted a story spark and I decided see what I could do. Regardless of the quality of the final piece, I reminded myself that I simply enjoy the process of writing. I researched writing forums and ended up and after a few days lurking I have just registered. Let the adventure begin.
