Hi all, I'm a 26 year old Canadian guy who wants to make a regular habit of writing and thinking more about short fiction. I was a journalist for a few years, and have published some corporate propaganda (e.g. reports and articles in trade journals). I've always enjoyed fiction, especially shorter works, but never made much of a serious effort. A few weeks ago, I rented a car to visit Alice Munro's private home. After being turned away at the door by her shirtless husband, I am determined to become a famous author so that I may meet her before she dies. Wish me luck!
