Hello!
First of all, I turned 50 last July, and I am happy to be alive! The year I turned 40 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, so it changes your perspective about aging!

I have enjoyed writing poetry for a long time, and have also written a few children's stories for my own kids, who are now all adults. All of my writing however, has been almost entirely for my own enjoyment. I have written a few things that have been in newsletters and that sort of thing, but I have never have tried to publish anything. I am hoping I can learn some awesome skills to improve my writing from the members on this site, so I hope there are some that will be willing to put up with a real live green horn!

I love the Lord! Not perfectly, but truly. He is my savior and my friend, and the one I write most about.

I'm excited about getting started, and a little nervous too! It's sort of scary making yourself vulnerable, but here goes!

Hey Lori!

Welcome!

Lora is so right... there are a lot of wonderfully kind and amazing people here. Lora herself is VERY good at helping to find the things in your writing that might need a little tweaking.. I value her input immensely!

I look forward to reading what you have to contribute!

Hi LoriV! We love new friends. This is a wonderful group.

I hope you don't mind a bit of silliness from time to time. Late at night some of us get a bit giddy. lol

Feel free to friend me on FB if you want a silly 66 year old friend.

Hugs
Thena Cullen Smith

I live pretty close to L.A. I'm in Costa Mesa, CA. It's hard to be away from our kids and let them be grown up.
