Hello, everyone!

I'm a 36-year-old mother and wife. I am just starting to write again. I wrote all the time when I was younger, but distractions and depression got between me and my words. Something snapped in me when I turned 36, and now I'm chasing down all the things I lost in the fog.

I haven't written fiction in a very long time, but I want to try my hand at it. At this stage, I don't even care if I write the worst story of all time. I just want to get to the end of a story. After that, I'll worry about writing something that doesn't reek.

My other hobbies include reading about linguistics, studying foreign languages, tinkering with constructed languages, and playing games. I like to draw and paint also, but I do both very badly.

What else can I say about myself?

I am goofy. I can't help it. Everything is funny to me. I've just been through too much to take life too seriously. Sometimes when really horrible things happen, there's nothing to do but sit down and cry. And then laugh. :joker:

Hello to you, Iannis, and welocme to the forum. Writng can sure be a good therapy - I've often felt that too.



Hi Iannis!
I'm familiar with what you're going through, I'm a year older than you w/a previous career instead of kids (just got the husband this summer) and had a lot of experiences that hurt. But somehow we'll get into this!

Well done, Iannis! Well done, lass!
You've taken the first and most difficult step to writing: doing it!
For that is what you have just done, brought the thoughts of a writer to page.
Well done, lass!
