I've been lurking around the forum for a day or so now, and thought it time to introduce myself. In a nutshell, I'm a forum addict. I know that doesn't say much, but I'm avoiding the waffle in a first post. Yep, I write. Novel length stories -- or as long as it takes. *grins* But, that isn't what drew me here. The community did. The advice I've seen from some members is great, and there is a very encouraging vibe here. Hopefully, I can add to that. And, if you would like a brutal/honest critique of your work (preferably novel excerpts), then I'm your man. I'm a bit of a grumpy old git, especially before the first coffee of the day!
