Hello, everyone! My name is James, and I've impulsively joined this site out of a mixture of wanting to improve my craft and a nostalgia for bulletin boards (before Facebook provided us with ubiquitous communication). I'm a programmer by trade, and illustrator by passion and an amature writer by necessity. When I say amature, I mean in it's truest sense, for the love of it. I've written games, animations and comics in the past, and now I want to expand my range to writing something a little substantial. I tend to write melodramas set in our own little world as apposed to big fantasy action adventures, or global conspiracies. I prefer characters to concepts. I can't wait to hear everyone's ideas, thoughts and opinions! Thanks!
