Writing is a re-discovered interest of mine. Having been a voracious reader and writer up through high school (many years ago), I somehow lost the urge as I became an ambitious working adult, mother and wife. I made a lot of changes in my life recently, from leaving a job I'd been at for 27 years, to leaving a town I'd lived in for 22 years, to leaving a husband I'd been with for 29 years. I feel like I'm a new person, and I am rediscovering my passion for many things. So now, as a newly re-married empty-nester, I am exploring my creative side. The writing class I just took validated that I can put sentences together and create a story, and and I've already learned a lot about improving my writing. I hope to continue that improvement here, get constructive criticism, and perhaps eventually publish some short stories. An added plus about this group is that I enjoy creative people, and I'm looking forward to having fun!
You can't shake the devil's hand and say you're only kidding.
Hi Becky! Glad to see you here. I think you and I have some similar experiences and those may have led us both to the path we're on now. I look forward to reading more of those sentences you string together! Have fun and Welcome!
Hi Becky! Sorry I missed this when you first posted it. WOW that really is a lot of changes at once. Good on you, being so optimistic about reinventing yourself and finding the life you want. And how fun that writing is a part of that. Nice to meet you!
