My name is Tina and I live in Northwestern Wisconsin. I am an unpublished writer with a passion for writing. It is all I think about and all I want to do. After all these years of dreaming and thinking, it's time to do. I have joined online writing groups, subscribed to magazines, dusted off my writing books, and plan to enter some contests. I have no idea how to get started so I have a lot to learn and plan to put all I have into learning it. I have many writing interests: short stories, articles, poetry, children, GLBT, really anything but novels or books unless it is a short children's book or a collection of poems and/or short stories.
I work as a Certified Nursing Assistant in a nursing home, mostly in the activities department and then I come home to people at the other end of the age spectrum. I have 5 sons who range in age from 6 to almost 18. My oldest is attending military school on Fort McCoy and still plans to enlist in the military after he graduates. Upon graduation (he will receive an HSED), he plans to take the couple of other courses required for a diploma and with any luck he will go on to college while being a weekend warrior. I also have a wonderful girlfriend who, unfortunately, lives near Green Bay. We have a great time during our all too infrequent visits. I have not seen her since September but have plans to make the trip toward the end of March. It's been a long 6 months. We also have 2 dogs and 4 cats.
I look forward to learning all I can about perfecting my writing, finding the right publishers, query letters, and anything else I need to know and also getting to know many friends here.
