Hello all! I've been out of a job for more than a few months, having recently graduated college and lost the college job shortly thereafter. With job hunting only taking a couple hours a day, I find myself with a lot of extra time on my hands. I really only have two hobbies I'd like to occupy myself, one of which is writing, but I have not written much in the last few years. My other hobby is what I went to college for; computer science- namely programming. Let’s just say right now, where I live, companies seem to want their computer programmers with 5 years or more of enterprise level programming, so I’m stuck in that lovely catch-22 I’m sure most college graduates get to face. I’d like to get my writing skills off the ground, and I recently found this board, which looks very promising. Anyway, as far back as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a writer. Fantasy/Science Fiction writing mostly, but I sold out when I hit college, and chose utility over my dreams. You can blame my age; I didn’t start college until I was much older and got tired of factories and warehouse work. Anyway, I’d still like to pursue that dream on top of my chosen career, and it can’t hurt to start now, with all of this extra time. Anyway, I hope to contribute some here, though perhaps at first I’ll be the student more than the teacher. See you all around!
