Hello to all. As must be quite plain, I am new here, and in fact new to joining any forum ever, and with very minimal experience of sharing anything I have written in a public place. So for me, it feels a bit like showing up naked at a job interview. I have only written for myself and one other person on and off throughout my life, when my confidence and self-belief has allowed, but I chanced upon this site, and decided to leap before I looked so that the self-doubt demons didn't get a chance to rig up the safety nets and stop me. Most of my writing has been poetry, songs and what I would call a 'psuedo-diary'. My reason for being here? Just to see what happens if I am. I'm not giving myself any harsh standards to live up to, just hoping to dare to show something I write to someone else and take it from there.
