Hello! My name's Mike and I thought I'd join this community in hopes of rekindling my writing spark. I haven't done a lot of writing as far as novel material goes, but I do enjoy story telling and narrative creativity. I work as a visual effects artist on feature film but would really love to have a completed novel one day. My reading habits are a little narrow at the moment so I'm certainly open to broadening suggestions. Left to my own devices I read mostly fantasy and a little science fiction now and then. I'm currently finishing off the Gentlemen Bastards series by Scott Lynch and I've got Jim Butcher's Codex Alera waiting in the wings on recommendation from my brother. Other activities I occupy myself with include mobile game design and development, gaming and furniture building! I'm also a keen animator; improving my writing skills go hand in hand with my desire to tell stories through the medium of animation. I hope to get to know some of you here, Cheers!
