Been writing most my life, on a professional and personal level, though I only really got back into fiction writing about eight years ago after an eight-year hiatus (where I focused more on non-fiction, non-lit article writing and such). Am an editor by trade, though, which makes me horrible at first drafts because I always want to edit (a la Dean Koontz ). Been looking for a good writing forum, so I thought I'd give this place a try. More about me and some of what I'm working on (among other things) via the link on my profile. Thanks and erm...hi .
