Just wanted to say hello. I'm an engineer by trade, but rediscovering my old love for writing (from way back in my "Young Authors' " days. Not sure they even still do that!) I used to wait to be "inspired" to write, but that led to a sentence or two every couple years. Once I started writing more frequently I was amazed how creativity/inspiration comes from within the story. Sometimes you get lucky and the story almost tells itself. Most of the time though my brain gets tangled up like a cat playing with a ball of yarn...too many ideas and not sure which one to choose. I don't know, maybe I should just write all of them in a "choose your own adventure book" Anyways, I've been working on short stories for a while in the hopes of improving my story telling/whatever else needs fixing to make a better story. Hope to post some soon and read some good stories in the meantime!
