Hi everyone, I am finally brave enough to take the needed steps towards my lifelong dream of writing a novel. The only issue is that I have not produced any piece of creative writing in 20 years. Somehow I always felt that there would be time for writing 'later' but now I feel that later is now I am fearful that any talent I once had is gone, bastardized by years of legal and corporate writing.

I have a well developed idea for a novel but while producing an outline and attempting to draft some scenes, I realized that I would be doing myself a disservice to attempt to write this story in my current unpractised state. Hence, I enter the Writers Workshop seeking to hone my skills that are hopefully just in a deep sleep rather than dead.

I don't get to saying hello to new people very often anymore-my fault-but I have a some time now so

Howdy there.

Good to meet ya

And I waited way too long to start writing seriously but I sometimes wrote in my head and a couple of times on a piece of note paper.

Welcome Ciaran. I too wish I had written more in the past. But there's no benefit to looking back with regret. I'm sure in many ways you are wiser and more experienced than you ever were before. There's a lot more that goes into writing besides just the writing part and I bet you have a lot to bring to the (writing) table. No better time to start than now!
