    Good morning all!

    Hi there! I'm Johny, and I hail from the remarkable single weather season of Scotland.

    I loved writing when I was younger and seemed to have my imagination pouring out of my ears. I hit my twenties and my brain got a bit defraggled on late night parties and an unhealthy work-life balance, causing my imagination to take a long vacation.

    Now I'm in my thirties, my imagination has returned and man has it came back grumpy! If I don't write something I think I might explode!

    I hope to have a happy time here getting lots of criticism of my work when its in a fit state to post, and meeting some fellow writing enthusiasts!

    Cool *Wave*

    It seems we are in similar situations and opposite climates!

    You have one season and we have all of them in five minute increments!

    Cheers!

    Hi Johny! Welcome to AW!

    My current WIP is set in Scotland. Beautiful place! I've never been, though, XD. So sadly it's all through pictures I've seen online.

    Hope to see you around! And be thankful of your one season, at least you know what to expect most of the time! Florida, where I'm from, is so bipolar!
