  1. This was my first meeting. I enjoyed it a lot. The guest speaker was great and had a real good story. I knew people where asking what you write. I dabble in all kinds of writings. I love expressing myself. I start writing song lyrics around seven. I start writing poetry in high school and taking Creative Writing elective and other like art. While attending high school I was working on my novel with a friend that never was completed. I continue to write off and on. In my thirties I had a dream about screenplay. So I started trying the screen. I write romance novels that paranormal and erotic. I also write children books. I have a few rough scripts. I have song lyrics I am putting to a demo. I have a few poetry stuff on poetry.com. I am a full time writer right now.
