Joining HubPages sure has changed the way I look at things in my daily life, especially TV. This is turning out to be quite an adventure. I look at and listen to things as potential fodder for a new hub, and indeed, I got one. I hope to join you all in sharing personal stories of my military experiences, poems, the English language and insights into life's lessons as well as a few hubs to forums. I've composed poetry since I was a young girl but never started writing it down until about 10 years ago. Of course, you know what that means--I've lost most of it. While serving in the US Army, I was often tasked to write documents and letters that related to the work I did. I even won a first place for my piece on Women in the Army in 1976. When I finally started capturing it on paper, I was able to share it with friends and family and actually write pieces for others. I took a job with a local newspaper that began a new section about local people and events. That's when I got my first by-line. What a glorious day that was. Next I took a job at a local college in order to defry tuition and wrote volumes of papers for my classes and poetry and articles for the college paper. A year or so after I got my AS in Business Management I started a new career which put me in another spot to write for my colleagues as well as training documents. Presently I'm involved with a writing group. Our work is to keep us active and advance our writing abilities. Unable to find a part-time job at this time, I'm hoping to make a dollar or two hubbing. Wish me luck.
