Come introduce yourself so we members can be writing pals forever.
Nice to meet you, Tina!
I just found you today through one entry in an interactive about One Direction; was surprised since you are close to my age, but intrigued at same time. I read your guestbook here to know more. I see many things in your descriptions about who you are that connect us. I hope you and I can find many poetry and reading opportunities to make a friendship.
You mentioned disability (both your daughter's and your own hearing loss), and I, too, was born premature, but now in my mid-forties, I have never let it stop me. I'm a bit clumsy and inexperienced with IM use, but maybe you can be patient with me? I have been on WDC 10+ years, but rarely used IM.
Well, I hope you will come see my portfolio. I would love your opinion on a character I have created, one I will make central to my first completed novel. He is a poet and a kind of special agent, who also happens to be deaf from a life-long progressive loss of hearing. Interested?
The best introduction to that character/novel happens to be the first listing in my portfolio:
Best line from Tin Man (2007)
"You know you really should do something about that BITTER cynicism of yours Cain."
"Why? Someones gotta keep your wide eyed optimism in check."
