Hi, I live in London am in my fifties and have finally found time to do what I enjoy most - write! I'm currently writing my first novel and trying to turn out 8,000 - 10,000 words per week. I've had some poetry published in the past and have a background in further education. Have recently lost my editor as she is busy reading for a Masters at the moment so am currently looking for someone to edit my work, in exchange for editing their work may be? Find the hardest thing about writing is the self discipline needed and wonder if sites like this are more of a distraction than a help, but decided to give it a try! Would be nice to hear back from anyone in similar position.
