Hi. Technically this is my second post because I was a tad beside myself when searching for answers to a question when I found this forum that I posted in a different thread just to ease my tensions. I get that way sometimes. I'm the OmegaPhish, or as one friend lovingly puts it, "The Phish to End All Phishes." I've been writing as long as I can remember. (I recently sorted through the big box of stories I've had laying around and found some from first grade. o.o *shudder*) Recently I let relationships, family, and everything keep me from what I love to do, and so I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. I've been working on the same story for almost ten years, and am finally getting ready to sit down and write it. I'm 24. I'm a geek. Sci-fi, fantasy, dark fantasy (before twilight and all these sissy vampire novels seem to have ruined it...), and poetry are my main things. I don't know if one of them in particular is my forte. If I had to choose, I'd probably say fantasy. I don't really dream of getting published. I just dream of finally finishing the story, of seeing it completed. Then I'll go to kinkos or something and print it out, throw it in a binder, and hand it to my friends and say, "Check this out!" =) I'm insanely excited I have found these forums, and I can't wait to get the ball rolling, FINALLY.
