Just joined after being introduced to Litopia by a very good friend who was active here a few years ago and is convinced it was an important step in developing his writing skills and, recently, becoming a published author. I retired a few years ago and after a career writing as a researcher and academic I'm keen to take on creative writing as a new challenge. The freedom of not having to check facts and having to document and reference everything is very appealing! But I'm sure there will be plenty of new challenges to deal with. I think I'm going to start by having a go with Flash Club.
