As a writer, I'll never stop writing. It is the most natural occupation of my time; I write stories, papers, journal, and novels. On a rare occasion, a poem bubbles out as well. I've done this my whole life, with a hiatus or two. So finding this community was a kind of kismet, and rejuvenating. True to form, I've bitten off more than I can chew and am co-writing one or two separate projects, as well as working on two different novels of my own. For "exercise" I also persist in my short stories and writing prompts to keep the ideas churning. Enjoy, critique and comment - all input, thoughts and reactions are appreciated!
