Here's my attempt to revive my writing spirit. My main interest is in novel-writing, though I frequently write short stories. I take writing very seriously, having worked with published authors and/or professors on a personal basis to improve my writing for several years. Although in recent months life complications have forced me to set it aside, I hope that I can change that. This is one of the main reasons I decided to join these forums, for both inspiration and support. I like providing support as well as getting honest, constructive feedback. I am also an experienced beta-reader, and if time permits me I am happy to oblige those who would like a fresh pair of eyes. I hope I can get along with all of you and work to improve our writing together.
