Sticking a Toe in the Water…

This was SUPPOSED to be post­ed to LJ Com­mu­ni­ty write_away!

Name I’m Cyn. I’ve been known as Tech­noMom for near­ly a decade, though, so I answer just as read­i­ly to that moniker.
Age: 37
Writ­ing Expe­ri­ence: Oh my! Let’s see—I’ve worked as a tech writer in the past. It was my favorite of the many jobs I’ve had in the last 25 years, so I decid­ed to choose a major that would help me return to the field. I wrote a lot of poet­ry as a teenag­er, but have only had occa­sion­al bursts of that as an adult. I tend to write non-fic­tion essays intend­ed for my web­site or one of the oth­er sites I man­age, many of which get post­ed to my LJ for feed­back (and which I’m like­ly to inflict on you now).
Pre­ferred Gen­res: Non-fic­tion most of the time now, though my life part­ner and I have a fan­ta­sy nov­el going (very slowly).
Edu­ca­tion: I’m study­ing “Tech­ni­cal & Pro­fes­sion­al Com­mu­ni­ca­tion” (tech writ­ing) at South­ern Poly.
Coun­try: US
What do you hope to get from this com­mu­ni­ty? Feed­back and encour­age­ment to write some­thing oth­er than LJ posts more regularly.
Where did you hear of us? I fol­lowed a link from some­one’s per­son­al jour­nal, I think? Maybe? My daugh­ter shad­owkatt is also a member.

I’m find­ing myself hit by snatch­es of dia­logue or very detailed descrip­tions of characters—and no plot. Noth­ing. No rea­son to use either, because noth­ing is actu­al­ly HAPPENING. I feel a need to work that out.

You already know that I’m a stu­dent. I’m also a home­mak­er and a home­school­ing par­ent. I do vol­un­teer work with an orga­ni­za­tion that helps peo­ple who are being harassed online, and wrote much of the mate­r­i­al on their site ( ). I’m dis­abled, though I don’t like that label.

Cur­rent Mood: 🙂cheer­ful
