Hello everyone

Hello everyone!

I've been spending the better part of 2012 working on a novel in a new world I created. When I told my wife I was tentatively done she told me to start meeting people to share and critique each other's work.

I've enjoyed reading several short stories and questions and wanted to register and introduce myself and participate when I have time, I work full time so I gave up video games to pursue this project that's taken up a lot of my free time in the last year. During my long drives home, I'll be brainstorming and if the family's asleep, I'll plop down to my computer and start typing.

That's all I've got for now. :]
