Hi, After years of sitting on my fiction plots and tearing them up at the end, I've decided to begin writing and editing the more promising ones. I figured there would be like-minded people and googled my way to this site. About me - I am a journalist-turned-freelancer who has worked in both feature and news writing. I also reviewed books for a national magazine for three years. About my writing - I hover around the adventure genre, though I do foray into chicklit and fantasy when the mood strikes. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from this site and improving my skills. I've been lurking about all day and... wow! I'm calling my writing to a halt until I finish reading some of the more interesting threads, especially in the character development section.
