Hello everyone. My name is Jason and I'm getting back into writing. I've written on and off since high school. I'm in my mid-30s now and want to give it a serious shot. In the long, long time ago (late 90s) I submitted several short stories for publication, but they all got rejected. Rightfully so. They were terrible. I also worked on, but never finished, a few novels. Unfortunately, I gave up way too quickly. I mostly write fantasy and science fiction as that's what I mostly read. I do read the occasional mystery or horror novel, as well as the classics. I'm not much of a short story reader or writer these days. It's 99% novels for me. And as far as nonfiction goes, I love reading history and science books (being a fantasy and science fiction fan, I guess that's not surprising ).
