After a lengthy hiatus from fiction writing, I decided to return to the craft. Guess I chose WritingForums to do it. I tried to quit creative writing for various reasons, but I can't seem to escape it. Maybe some of you can relate. I find its one of the best ways to deal with the monotony of daily life for a hopeless escapist like myself Anyway, I'm mostly a sci-fi & fantasy reader/writer, with some thriller and horror thrown in when I need something different. I'm looking to get into either fanfiction (for when I don't have an original idea powerful enough to act on, but still want to write) or something unique, depending on how inspired I am. I'll probably concentrate on short stories, as I don't feel quite ready for a full length novel yet. I look forward to joining a like minded community again and seeing what I can learn from it. If anyone needs their work critiqued, I may be available, time permitting.
