My name is John and I missed this forum at first. I posted in the general writing forum before... Oops! As I said in the general writing forum, I'm not a writer by profession. I have a normal job and I'm a normal guy. I've just had an idea for a novel (maybe even a series of books) that has been percolating in my head since high school. I'm now a graduate from college and starting to work on a career. I would like to write this novel on the side! I'm looking to write about a futuristic sci fi book set several thousands of years in the future. The human race will still exist with an extensive history at that point. They will discover other lifeforms through out the universe. They will find that the ruling structure for the universe varies by a lot more than they realized. I don't want to give away too much, but I'm looking forward to writing it! It's nice to meet you all!
