Hi. I've been a member of Writing.com for a number of years but never participated (like this post, or replying to a topic on a forum) until today. I'm ashamed to admit that I found site navigation to be intimidating, but I actually spent some this evening on the Writing.com101 sections and proceeded in an orderly manner and now I'm getting the hang of it. It's quite nice, actually; I hope to become more active.
My writing for the most part has been blogging on alcoholism and addiction recovery; my fiction is, I suppose, some kind of spiritual/light fantasy/speculative fiction thing. I bought Scrivener a year ago and that has helped me tremendously.
Anyway, dunno what else to say here, so with that, later!

For me, writing is therapy. Getting stuff out there and on the page helps me to learn about myself and also to cope with things.
