Hello all. I was looking for a place to actually receive feedback on the (primarily) short stories that I've been writing and posting at a Warhammer 40K forums- where I moderate- down the web a bit and to the left. Alas, they don't get quite enough action in their "Stories" section, so I don't get very much criticism. So I used my Google-fu, and found this place. You guys seem to run quite a nice, friendly show around here. I write mostly fantasy stories of my own devising (ie: not associated with any existing setting) and the occasional Sci-fi story. I am currently a cook (Food Service Specialist) in the United States Coast Guard. Besides writing I also enjoy reading, digital photography, and other geeky stuff that I won't go into here. I didn't see any forum rules, but I'll just assume that swearing, flaming (obviously) and other such behavior is off-limits. See you around.
