I have been a member of an online writer's group for over a year now and really enjoy it. However, I am a people person and think it would be much more inspiring to be in an actual room among writer's, as opposed to a chat room online.
Probably what everyone is looking for. To grow creatively, learn new skills and tighten up on the skills I have in place and to write, write, write and write some more. I write short stories now, but would love to write a book and be published.
Working full time, being a wife and mother. Really, just finding time to write. I know I need to map out or block writing times for myself and get into a habit.
I write a little bit of everything. My first short story was based on a humorous, childhood memory. I like to write about Ghost/Supernatural and I am pretty big on Thriller/Suspense.
I have not been paid for my writing as of yet. I have stories posted online at www.writing.com and have won a couple of their contests. I would love to be published and if I had a finished book I would consider self publishing.
I love books! A few of my favorite authors are King, Koontz, Spindler, Cornwell, Rice & too many others to name. I discovered that I could write myself, in mid 2008, after joining an online writer's group. I have since won a few contests there.
There's always a wide range of talent and knowledge to learn from and grow with.
