I’m new, and I’m looking for penpals outside the UK, I work for NHS and when I’m not working or studying, I’m a voracious reader usually snuggled up with one of my dogs.
I enjoy politics, current affairs and plan to retire to a Scottish island soon; to pursue my other love -all things archaeological.
I have adult children and no grandchildren sadly. I’m interested in music, from Glyndebourne to Download festival I enjoy it all. I have been working very hard this year with some working weeks of 52 hours - so I am promising myself I will take more time for hobbies and less working next year.
Anyway please contact me if you’re brave enough, Kitty
Just going to throw it out there....is anyone on here a reader/dabbler/novice with tarot or oracle cards? I'm probably best described as a keen dabbler. It would be lovely to chat to those who are like-minded or interested.

Have you ever written a poem and shared it with others?
66-year-old male into hiking. Several groups I belong to are younger people 40-50.
Looking for hiking partners in Wi-i’ll. I will be straight and state I am married.. Prefer females as I enjoy their company.
I have written, in some form, all my life...travel articles (not very well paid), poems (unsold), a long saga novel (refused by many publishers), academic essays, (completely unpaid) translations from Italian and French (paid in kind by hotels and restaurants) and FINALLY I retired and returned to live in England and began to write books that actually sell. I now give creative writing courses in Cambridge and Norwich (almost unpaid) and recently online only.
I have two bylines often attached to my pen name Kate Fitzroy
1 'escape with a book'
2 Everyone has a book to write.
I shall end with a quote from P.G. Wodehouse "I know I was writing stories when I was five. I don't know what I did before that. Just loafed, I suppose."
I'm new to silversurfers. I was looking at the games tab and clicked on the chess tab but I only seem to get a blank screen. Is it something I'm doing wrong? I'm not particularly good, I just enjoy playing and having a chat.
I'm a failed aspiring writer. My opening sentence was an intentional contradiction. Despite failure, meaning never been published, I still have hope.
True it's similar to the hope I have of winning the lottery, but a little hope is better than none at all. Anyone else out there tried or trying writing?
I'd like to hear your stories, both the ones you wrote and the ones you've lived. Your efforts at getting published, dealing with rejection letters/emails, and also the success stories. Maybe we can give each other advice, critique each others' work and support each other when writer's block or rejections happen.
If ever there was a good time to write it's during a lockdown. I've been trying to get back into it, though it's not easy because I still work full time, and I have a disproportionate ratio between imagination and perseverance, but it's something I enjoy so I keep at it.
My writing is fiction, I dabble in sci-fi, romance, erotica and adventure stories. I have done short stories in creative fantasy and philosophical quests. So...any writers out there?
