My name is Jonathan Moran, but I'm not entirely partial to that name, so just call me Moonbeast. Everybody else does. I am primarily a fiction person. Like so many societal rejects, I choose to live in the fabrications originating from my subconscious cesspool, rather than the real world and real people. But I'm sure I'm not alone on feeling this way, right? Why did I join writing forums? I've been looking for a site like this for a while. I need a place where I can often post the progress I'm making with the first draft of my first novel. I understand the importance of honest criticism, and I hope the people here do too. I look forward to being a member of this community.
