Hello, all.

I'm new & introducing.

I'm working on a fantasy novel, which is a new thing in my life. I'm comfortable with other kinds of writing (scholarly, technical-ish, poetic, etc.), but this is the first fiction I've written since high school. A group of characters came to me a while back and started interacting, and seemed to want to be written. I hadn't had this kind of experience before, and had never thought, in my adult life, that I had a novel in me. I'm putting feelers into community both because I'm so green at this and because -- although I work well alone, in many respects -- I find groups of people help keep my batteries charged and creativity flowing.

Current distractions include Lyme disease, which I've had for going on a year (a draining and time-consuming thing, this)and children who should be my grandchildren (ages 10 and going 8.)

I live in Glenwood, Maryland (the proverbial good place to raise kids), with my spouse, two daughters, and three cats (two indoors, one outside).

Cheers and blessings,

Ostara Hollyoak

I'd like to add my own greetings to the others.

You've come to the right place to learn about writing and maybe even a little bit about publishing here and there. Some friendly people hereabouts too.

However as you do explore the treehouse watch out for that unicorn she can be mean at times.
