Just joined up and thought I would introduce myself and pick up some good advice along the way. I've never been interested in writing before but since the birth of my son two years ago, I've decided to get more creative in my storytelling. I have a couple of ideas in my head and I thought that I would try and put them down on paper and see what creative story sprung forth. My main interest in stories have always centered around the science fiction, space, fantasy element but lately I have been interested in reading bios. I have dabbled in storytelling as I still play MUDS (basically roleplaying groups) online and I am a moderator/wizard and in charge of storytelling for a particular group. Thus having to come up with plots/storylines for the players is a good exercise. The recent plot I did really fired up the players and they enjoyed the tension and the ride. Therefore, i know it can be achieved. I look forward to starting my story, and I hope that you will come along for the ride. Anyhow, I've rabbled on long enough. I'm actively working on my grammer as I have never worked on it before. I've also reading Stephen King's 'On Writing'. It is a very interesting read.
