I written much in online forums, I’ve blogged, and I have written for an Onion-like satire magazine called The Manatee in my Canadian province of New Brunswick. I have completed NaNoWriMo six years in a row, have won second place in a local writing contest, and am a board member of Fog Lit Festival. Writing has opened some doors for me. Intrinsic ones: new friends, improved self management of my disease and a better understanding of general health issues, and a release of built of energy that his accumulated in my head over my 55 years. I've done a fair amount of business report writing in the past.
