I love writing. I love my characters. I love my plot. I love everything about this process - the world unfolding inside my head, the deep discussions with my imaginary friends, the healing power of creative expression.
I especially love the mystery of writing; for instance, when something I didn't know I was going to write, appears on the page and links perfectly to the last thing I didn't know I was going to write. Magic!!!
I am at one with the entire universe when I'm writing. But I don't write enough. I struggle to juggle my creative life with the demands and realities of the mundane world. Nothing new, I know. But frustrating as hell. All I wanna do is write!!!

I don't know why it would not allow you to join the group. Have you had any problems trying to join another group? You may want to get with Diane. I went into the Admin Options but could not find anything to correct the problem. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes you as I would be greatly honored to have you as part of the group. Please keep me updated.
