Hi everyone. I'm new - obviously - to this forum, and to the internet in general. I have wanted to be a writer since I was very young (now 32). These days though it's been mostly relegated to the 'hobby' category! I generally write short stories of the fantasy genre, with a few exceptions... I have had some poetry published (years ago now), but I have not actively sought to publish anything for a while. I look forward to being a part of this community.

Welcome Code Red

Welcome to the forum Code Red. Don't feel too down on yourself. I'm in the same boat as you, but I'm now 43! I do ok but my dream is to take my writing from a hobby to something where I can say "I'm an Author" even if I don't make a living at it. Hey, how many of us can say we make our full-time living as an author anyway? Best of luck to you. Post often as there seems to be some quality, caring folks here.
