Ready to take a chance

Hi. My name is Evelyn. I am 52 and I live in Canada. I wonder if I am the oldest person here. Because of the second Craig Clevenger Intensive I finally got a Premium Membership and signed up for his 6 week course.

I'm a part-time University student trying to finish an English Lit degree. One course at a time. Two years ago The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron help to unblock my creativity. Every morning my Morning Pages are a sacred ritual. They help me stay unblocked and come up with a lot of crazy ideas.

This led me to write a 50K novel last November for Nanowrimo. It is one of the worst novels ever written but it proves to me I can produce something. I loved the structure and the pressure of the Nano deadline. Writing can feel so lonely and the Internet makes it a bit easier.

I read just about anything. I got rid of my T.V about six years ago so I have more time for the important things in life, like reading, writing and people. I have read and enjoyed Fight Club, Invisible Monsters, Haunted and Rant. Choke was my favorite.

Thanks to the members on this site I have read The Raw Sharks Text and Clown Girl.

Cujo is the purrfect name for a cat.

I am ready to write.
