    Hello all, It is twilight here in Seattle, and the clouds are pink and purple on the western horizon. I am MommaKat, and I've been writing in an amateurish fashion for years, but only recently started with more dedication in the last couple months. I am a healer (nurse), birder, hiker, photographer, mom, grandma and life partner.
    I love to write and am finding I want to go back to English classes I took more than thirty years ago to relearn the technical aspect, I've been out of that for so long, I couldn't tell you why a phrase of writing is wrong, only that it IS.
    I cut my sci-fi/fantasy teeth on Piers Anthony, Anne McCaffrey, and Mercedes Lackey among others. Currently writing about a nurse who is also a druidic healer.
    I hope to learn more about writing, and learn to write better.
    Blessed Be

    Hi MommaKat and welcome. Piers Anthony and Anne McCaffrey. Flashback to the eighties for me. I remember reading the Incarnations of Immortality series and thinking, "What is this guy about?" Also remember a couple of his more *ahem* interesting short stories and thinking the same, only more so.

    The Incarnations series still holds a special place in my reading. I still own the original copies, rather battered, I might say, and have them on Kindle as well. As a young adult, these books influenced my beliefs regarding spirituality and religion as a whole, things I explore to this day as I am past the mid-fifty mark in my life. Now the "ahem" is making me want to go dig the books out again, lol.

    The 'ahem' was a nod towards a couple of the short stories in "Anthonology", his collection from, I think, about mid-eighties. Deeply disturbing they were.

    So far it is. Now I start a new work week so will not be active for a bit. 12 hour nights tends to take it out of one's body
