Hey there. After about 20 years of procrastination I've finally gotten around to writing again, just finished a short story and there will be more soon. I've been enjoying some of the writing posted here and I'm sure I'll be giving my two cents very soon. My two biggest influences seem to be Dashiell Hammett and Charles Willeford, I tend to enjoy character driven fiction that doesn't indulge in flowery, descriptive prose so that's what I try to write. I'm looking forward to learning from you all!
