Hi, newbie oldie wannabe neverbe here. I write because I have things to say, yet...nobody reads me...literally. So this place offers a chance to get out of my bedroom and into the light you might shine on my work. I didn't know I was a writer for almost fifty years...now? Well, perhaps you should be the judge because it seems we are either our greatest fan or our worst critic...depending on the level of self-confidence on any given day. I have only been writing for six years, but when I finally discovered this art, it poured out like a shaken soda bottle...poetry, essays, observations, comedy is my fav...dry, analytical and self-deprecating.
