Perhaps an introduction is in order. I have been doing creative writing as small hobby since the 80s, but it wasn't until I had an awesome Creative Writing professor in college before I had the motivation to really take it more seriously. My favorite genre is fantasy, although I am sort of a history buff as well. So I found this site, and thought that the folks here are a great resource to help me become a better writer as well as helping me become part of a community that I want to take a larger part in. So I look forward to becoming a contributing member of the site. Thanks all!
