You just couldn't resist, could you. The wonder of Google has led me here like many before me; I'm an unpublished, aspiring writer who spends more time doing research than actually writing. I blame the scourge that is writer's block and my lack of characterization ability. Instant Messenger and a few dedicated critics have helped me sharpen my talents in the past; now I'm hoping to find a few friends here that are also interested in realtime discussions over MSN. My experience in writing is best described as pages and pages of brainstorms and drafted ideas, but little progress in terms of getting something done. It sucks. I'm a sick bastard who writes for the sake of it, yet frustrated by it all the same. Dan.
