Hello. I'm sending greetings from Germany on a rainy day. I wanted to join this site in order to focus more on the technical side of my writing and maybe get more of my odd little stories onto paper. I think you can't choose the stories that are in you, but you can learn how to write them well. Here's hoping, at least. I studied Asian literature at school, and I like a little sci-fi and/or fantasy mixed in with my literary fiction. Some favorite books include Lolita, Budapest, Slapstick, A Confederacy of Dunces, and The Sparrow. Looking forward to all the conversations and feedback.
