How did an ex-bureaucrat like me become a writer. By becoming bored, and having a too active imagination. I am just starting to write, one novel and another half way done. I am trying some shorter stories for articles so I can get something published...if I deserve it that is. I am a very active person, running, soccer, Mt. Biking Skiing as well as my more academic pursuits such as reading, music and now writing. I hope to become a very active member of this website. Write on!
