Just a thought, but, After reading several thoughts and messages I find it difficult to ascertain the age levels of the writers. I'm 46, I saw a 44, but there are a few that look like they are still in school. No problem with it but are there any oldersters out there chasing their dreams of writting?

Yep, that's me, an oldster. I am a 44 year old who dreams of writing fantastic Science Fiction. My biggest problem if juggling my day jobs, teaching first grade full time and computers to teachers part time. I really want to get to know others who may be in this situation.

Teresa,
I opened a store in April (arts and crafts)as well as work Hospital Police at night so I know how it feels.
Still When business is slow I think about what I have written and added or subtracted what was needed. I also found that when I get home late at night and the family is asleep. I cup of tea (red Zinger with honey)my pipe and my work helps me unwind and also gives me the time to "see" what I have written. (somehow I find myself becoming the charactors more easily during this time). Try it, who knows...

I just turned (gasp!) 28. I am really feeling 30 creeping up on me, mostly because I still haven't finished college. It's okay, though, because I am doing other things that make me happy.

You turned 28 this month? Or are you saying that you just happen to be 28? That's very interesting, either way.

UML is 19, so I understand.

My age has never exceeded my waistline, so I guess I'm still young at 42.

OK, I'm new to this (most of my talks with others are in chat rooms...or am I missing something Here...{as I look around the room to see if I did...}...
How long has everyone been in this mad society of writers? Or at least at Hatrack?

I think I'm 36... but years tend to fly by so I forget. I also forget my phone number; but then I usually don't call myself, so there ya go.

As for Hatrack, I've actually just joined up last month but felt the urge to stop lurking and comment occasionally....

Like now.

<grin>
