I've been writing since I was eleven, and have always dreamed of being a writer. My biggest hangup has always been the notion that I couldn't possibly make it happen. I've been surrounded by people in my life who've always told me that it's not safe; not economically feasible. Now that I'm approaching forty I figure I'd better get started or all my dream will be is a regret. As part of that plan, I have decided to surround myself with positive people in a support group format. Glad to be here; looking forward to going for the gusto!
