Hello All!
Here is a little bit about me. I'm completely new to writing. I have had stories bouncing around in my head for years and I have finally decided to put some of them down on paper. I am doing this for the first time here at age 32, so be easy on the old man. For fun I suffer from "too many hobbies" syndrome, including martial arts, kayaking, strategy games, (and countless others) and am also youth leader at my church and a father of 2. I pay the bills as a Information Security Analyst so if anyone needs details of computer security really works (or doesn't) let me know.

Hi,

I am 41 and only started writing a year ago, so I know how you feel.

Welcome.

We're all old farts here...37 years young and feeling every long foot aching minute of it.

Well, I've always thought it had more to do with the mileage than the model year. :-) At 38 I think I've still got some tread left, but sometimes it feels like I'm on my 3rd set of tires...

Welcome. I just joined recently, and have found that no matter whether you're an old fart or wet behind the ears, everybody is willing to take the time to look at honest effort and give their honest advice. About all you can ask for...

Good luck.

Hi undocked1,

I didn't write a lick of fiction until November 1, 2006 at age 43. Somehow managed to get into OSC BootCamp this past year, and life is looking good.

So, you're never too old nor too young to become a writer (I'm older, and heavens knows there are gazillions of younger folks out there being complete successes).
