I like the internet because I don't get quite so many of those 'Has anyone told you you're weird?' responses- you can be weird on the internet and no-one notices. Well I live in the fabulous Northland area of NZ with my two young girls and my husband. I am always far too busy because I am interested in a lot of stuff and my girls don't let me have much time to myself. I am always sleep deprived and I struggle with my dyslexia, slow typing and/or RSI. But I must write! I am compelled to. I get itchy fingers if I can't write for a while, once I was feeling anxious at this persons place and once I got some paper and a pen in my hands I felt so much better! It was before I'd even written anything, just the knowing I could helped. Also if I didn't write down some of the stories/characters/dialogue/scenes multiplying in my brain my head would explode in this big gory mess that would take weeks to clean up. I love the beauty of that sentence that feels right, you play with the words until they slide into that shape that feels and sounds right. I love stories, any stories that grab me and I love writing them even better than reading them, but I sure am still learning and this site is great!
