Good morning and greetings

Post by Macs » 12 Mar 2017, 07:20

What is it about introductions that make me temporarily tongue-tied? :roll:

Hi! I'm Macs, a story lover, former teenage poet, and unfortunately recovered bookworm yearning for re-addiction to page upon page of words. What do I mean? During the final year of my BA in English, I became terribly unwell and could no longer read and write as I used to - going through a 2 page article in less than 3 hours was suddenly a Herculean labour, when previously my reading speed was 1000 pages in 8 hours.

It has taken over 5 years, but here I am able to read a book every 2 weeks (1 for reading, 1 for processing) like a normal person, and itching for more stories. :techie-studyingbrown:

Well... that's about it for now. I'm sure I'll think of something to add later!

Welcome and enjoy!
