Well, Here I am trying to carve out an amazing future as a word-smith. With determination, creativity, your help and some spare time I am SURE I will get there.   
My name is Ian, I'm from the beautiful New Zealand.  I only have six adorable kids - is that enough?  I am also a Christian.
I love to read and support others with the same vein as I.  Life is NOT a box of chocolates.  It's true that you never know what you're goin'a get; but you can certainly work towards something that truly inspires you.  Something you want to become.

My key secret is that you need to edit, and re-edit.  It might take 100 times, but keep working it.  A diamond was once just a drab rock, until a master jeweler saw its potential and worked it.
I have already written a childrens' story that you can sample here at . This version is in the first person, however I am working through - re-editing and uploading the original version to wattpads.  The original version was always in the third person.  I'd love to have your votes and advice.

One day Brown bear went down the path, past the white picket fence where he should never have gone. Just to see what he could see. Oh what a naughty brown bear he was. Lets hope he learns his lesson.
