Wherver you go, there you are
I should have done this first, I know that now. My first post in the General Discussion got mixed reviews so to speak. I am a teacher; it’s the only thing I am really good at. So please excuse my tediousness and I can get preachy. I teach people not much older than many of you out there in cult land. So, that should be interesting. I am a recovering alcoholic, who was married for a long time to another drinker. When I could not take it anymore and I left I then became a drunk myself, and that worked for about 3 years. I lost most of my friends when I quit, and have trying rebuild my life ever since. I used to write all the time but when thing got too bad with drinking I lost the ability to finish a story, not that I ever had the stones to let anyone read much of my stuff. I have always been a fan of Chuck's work, and I looked at this site then decided to join up to see if I can get some fresh perspective and maybe finish a short story or two. A teacher once said writing is like giving birth. If that is the case I have a lot of miscarriages. Anyway that’s my deal and here I am.
Thanks for reading my rambling hello and respond if you feel so inclined, I really hope you do, by the way.
