Hey Myxtress

Thanks for saying g'day and for giving a little insight into your life and writing (Life writing? Write living?). Seems like you've got some good material to draw from for your work :)

From what you described, writing is not your hobby, but rather "what you do'. Writers write - you do it every day, so consider yourself a true working writer and not a hobbyist. And the fact that you have a clear goal is further evidence of your title. You'd be amazed at the number of would-be's you put yourself ahead of just by finishing!

My Vancouver story? Ah, it's a long one; too long for this forum and my guy typing. I will say this, though: if you read the blurbs on my website for the novels 'MVP', 'The Umbilical Word' and 'Kindling', it will give you some idea :)

Cheers and talk again soon!

Thanks for the kind words, and it seems you have a lot to draw on from your own experiences as well. I sense your journey to Vancouver was complicated, both at its best and worst.

BTW, loved your reference to guy typing. Although, I admit I have a hard time picturing an author approaching the keyboard with the two-fingered hunt and stab technique that the guys in my house use...so I don't believe your typing is all that bad.
