Hello to all! I've been writing casually and for myself since I was about twelve. I've been a big reader all my life and it influenced me to attempt to express my own ideas and adventures. I used to write a lot of short stories and D&D adventures which kept me busy and my writing sharp. However, I've taken some years off and lately I've been trying to get back into the swing of writing. Reading through some of the short story entries on this site I've realized that my writing needs some serious tuning and reshaping. I'm hoping to share some material and learn from those on the site.
