    hellloo there

    Hello there
    As I'm posting in the newbie section, its pretty obvious I'm new
    I hope my stay here will be continuous and rewarding and that I'll also be of some help to someone out there.
    A bit about me, I'm 25, have two beautiful daughters, 20 months and 7 months old, they help my writing as I'm awake most of the night because they don't allow sleep much ha ha.
    I teach pre school. I have a poem published here in the great sunny South Africa, and hope to oneday have a book published to show my kids dreams can come true, but I write mostly because my imagination over works and the ideas has to go somewhere, so why not on paper?

    Not going to lie: people who have kids and STILL make time to write are just astonishing to me. My admiration for your drive and discipline cannot be contained. (Here's me cussing at the cat because some reason she wants fed even though she just ate *yesterday* - I can't imagine how you do this with a job and two tots and a cherry on top!)

    So I don't know how you do it, but I'm glad you are feeling bold enough to add AW on to your agenda - we are certainly glad you're here!
