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.
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.
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&MDASH;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 (http://www.haltabuse.org/ ). I’m disabled, though I don’t like that label.
