Like most people here I am an aspiring writer. I have been writing sporadically for many years, but nothing cohesive. As I am sailing into my mid 40s I think it's about time I tried to see if I have what it takes. To that end, I will try and post a variety of material, and will welcome constructive criticism. I am difficult to offend, so please do be honest. I'm looking forward to working with you all. Claymore.
