Hiya,
Great idea :)
I'm Mist (Mahsa) 20 years old studying English literature.
I also work as a part time teacher/editor/translator.
I run a student's magazine and am the head of the student's academic association of the English department at the university.
I've only been writing for about a year but take it very seriously.

Hi everyone - I'm Dee Martin. I am in my fifties, work as the campus technology contact at the local high school, I have a husband and two awesome kids (who are in college) and I've been writing for a few years. I write poetry and fiction (though mostly poetry for the last year) and when I am not writing or working I am probably reading.

Hello and Welcome everyone!  Like you I am a member of AP and SW and trying to expand my websites to promote my writing.  I have been writing since I was nine years old though I do not wish to reveal my age now.  Call it a favor for privacy.  ^^*  Still i prefer to compose tales of a fantasy/horror flavor although I do also like other genres such as romance and science fiction.  I write a little bit of everything I guess!

Hi, I am Ree *tmtate from AP.  I have a lifelong love of reading and writing. I am 41, divorced, no kids--just a cat; Wolfie. Born and raised in Ohio, moved to Tennessee at age 19. I have worked part time as an RCA (substitute rural mail carrier) since 1999; hoping to get full time someday. I am interested in pretty much everything, I love to learn!
Some things I cannot do without: Music, Laughter, Friends/Family, My cell phone, my car and a creative outlet!  I love to drive, travel, fish, camp, explore/experiment, cook/bake, read, write and people watch.  I used to love shopping, but the economy kind of nixed that! I am a survivor. I am a procrastinator, but once I get started-Watch Out! :D

Hello all, I'm M. Suzanne Wyatt, 56 I too am from AP, I followed Beth and a few other here from there when Kevin, appears to have become deaf and blind to the voices and postings of his members since this upgrade.  It almost feels deserted there now.  I've been writing poetry, since I was about 14, but it wasn't until 2009 that I really started to write again.  I had, had a stroke, and I've used my writing skills to help me gain back communication skills I had lost.  I think it's helped some, I don't struggle quite so often trying to find a word I want like I did a year ago, plus I'm suffering from RA, and seizures (a post-stroke problem) and the computer and my writing friends are my current connection to the outside world, I don't have friends or family come around too often these days, and since I can't drive anymore, I don't go shopping either.  My only company is a 30 minute visit once a month from my doctor, and a weekly 15 minute visit from my nurse.  Otherwise, I'm pretty much home with my 82 year old mother, and she spends most of her time in her room playing solitaire or watching Gunsmoke on TV.

Re: Getting to know each other

Hi Amigos --- I snuck over from SW when things started looking stupid over there. I’m a seventy-three year old Canadian male and my preferred genre is the western or outdoor adventure. I spent some time in the far north of Ontario, walking the walk of a fur trapper. I didn’t learn much about writing, but story telling that’s whole nother story.   The stories were told and retold over and over each rendition slightly different than the original. The art form was oral narration, because there were very few who could read and those who could were for the most, traders and fur buyers. Anyway I do carry on when I’m on a topic I like.   I like to critique, I think I learn as much from the process if not more that those I critique.   I tend to be a little crust and my bed side manners, some say are wanting, but my comments are honest and intended to help.   Talk to you soon --- ablelaz.
