Hello from Canada!

Hello. My name is Mike and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Looks like a nice website to meet people.

I'm trying to get my girlfriend to join as well but she's hesitant, so I thought I would try it out and then tell her more about it. I understand the majority of members are in the UK? How many Canadians are there? I like meeting people internationally. This is the second forum I've ever joined, the first was cancelled.

I look forward to making new friends and participating in interesting conversations.

Hi Mike, I am not a writer but love the written word. I've thought about it before but it is a big investment in time. I just noticed you said 5 books and short stories but had not found a publisher. Are there not on-line publishers now? Maybe even an amazon book? It seems a shame that you have written so much and it is not out there yet. Do you prefer writing fiction to non-fiction? Did you take up any courses first?

I'd also settle for making one acquaintance and having a not too boring chat. Anyone?

Hi Gini, Nice to meet you. I was beginning to think everyone was in the UK. Chat buddies sounds good. My job is boring and thanks to covid so are my weekends now. How are you coping with the pandemic? This is the 2nd website I've joined, as the first one is now defunct, but I enjoyed corresponding with the people there. It was a site for aspiring writers, so we all had something in common. That was then. I don't aspire so much any more, except for a comfortable retirement (aka 649) and maybe a little something to restore, to at least a small degree, a little youthful wonder. What are you looking for or have you already found something?

Okay, maybe more about me then. I'm 58, I work as a security guard in a small college in Toronto. I used to aspire to being a writer but after five books and a bunch of short stories not being published, I gave up. maybe I will resume trying when I retire, if I can afford to retire. Any writers out there?
