I decided that I want to learn to write. I loved the creative writing classes I took in grade school and high school. I never thought that my writing was good enough. So I never thought to try to make a profession of it. After all, the big money was in computers and the sciences. I settled for heading out into the workforce doing customer service.
I have been learning to come to terms with an ailment that leaves me limited physically. I am no longer able to work the job that I had come to enjoy. While bed-ridden I found my escape in books. One day, I decided to re-read 50 shades. Then, out of curiosity, I went searching for similar writings. I found a huge selection from many authors in many different genres. Most can be hard to find because they bury them, most likely to keep young eyes from discovering them. In this group I have found, some were well written, while others were, well, not so much.
That is when I came up with the idea of this website. A place for authors of all calibers to socialize, as well as mentor others, or to hone their craft. I am looking forward to someday seeing all the empty spaces on this site filled. I will be featuring writings, thoughts and conversations by our membership. I will add resources and advice as well from the most experienced authors. Yup, I have big dreams for this site. Until then, I am going to do my best to write a bit about my journey. I am hoping my experiences might inspire others not only to write but to share their experiences as well.
In the meantime, I look forward to other authors joining this site and to hearing about your journeys. I also welcome any helping hands offered to help make this site a success. If you have any problems signing up you can use the contact form, or the message boards and I will be happy to help.
Till next time, happy writing everyone!
