Hello all. This is not only my first foray into a writing forum, but pretty much any forum. I have been writing on and off since High School but put it aside as I "got a real job." Now I am nearing my fiftieth revolution (as my brother-in-law would say) and, with my career fairly well set, my two children in college, I have been bitten once again by the writing bug. Only this time I want to get serious about it. I am looking for some guidance from those who have been doing this longer, (from a volume of writing standpoint, that is nearly everyone) or has studied the subject more. I look forward to many heathy debates and conversations.
