Hi everyone. My name is Dennis. Introductions are always awkward, but it doesn't look like too many people read them anyway. That helps. I wrote a lot about 10 years ago, but once college got harder than I thought it would and I broke into the real world, I didn't have much time for it. Recently a friend recommended Stephen King's On Writing to me, and I really felt the itch again. The muse started banging around inside my head urging me to get some stuff down on paper (or screen... whatever). Before I do that, however, I thought it might be a good idea to mingle around other like-minded people. So here I am. The "review other stuff before posting your own stuff" policy is an interesting one. I like that it virtually guarantees that you'll get some kind of feedback when posting, but on the other hand I wonder if it seems pretentious for this new guy to just come in and start critiquing writing when no one has seen his writing ability or knows if he has any idea what he's talking about. I like reading amateur writing, though, and usually critique in my head. This won't be much of a jump. Anyway, I'm looking forward to this!
