    I have been involved with writing all my life and throughout my career (a technical writer). I love to read and have to exercise massive control to write instead of read. My passion for swimming came late in life, at 50, when I joined a Master's swim group and got competitive. Out of this grew another life-changing relationship...the SwimKnits. I'm very lucky at this stage in my life to have so many friends and activities. Now, if they'll just let me write!

      Good luck!! Bit of advise. I always read judges comments 3 times. I let myself be hurt or angry or ecstatic but then I really read the comments and apply to my work. Hope you do great!

      Appreciate the comments and advice. Just the process of polishing my Meet scene and working with the score sheet has been worth it.
