What to Do

I've been writing since I was in elementary school. I started writing some of my own fiction when I was in junior high at about 14. I have not written any original fiction in quite a few years, only some poetry here and there, as I seem to be stuck for ideas. I've also over thought about getting the novel I wrote seven or eight years ago published, and am scared to even try. Maybe I have too much life experience now to write what I used to write. Things have calmed down for me a lot, and I'm not sure where to start anymore. Of course, I did withdraw from my college program and am not sure what career path I'll be following next. Hmm...

Amazingly, it was within days of 9/11 happening that I first got online &amp; felt called to 'Net discussion forums<br />
<br />
My older cousins were a Colonel, a Wing Commander &amp; a Navy Commander<br />
<br />
They'd have all retired before 9/11<br />
<br />
But, having that family background, being ex-security &amp; a Bible College graduate, I knew many folk were in deep shock &amp; needed to talk<br />
<br />
In each forum I've been on, I've always recommended folk to google, free online creative writing courses &amp; competitions<br />
<br />
I'd already done a Correspondence Course with The Writers Bureau<br />
<br />
But as we move back into cold, wet, windy days, I'll sure do online refreshers<br />
