Hello all.

I stumbled across Hatrack a few months ago and have finally decided to take the plunge and join your community.

I've been a passionate writer for years but haven't pursued my desire to take my writing seriously until recently. I have spent the last 7 years working as a reader for Stephen R Donaldson. That has been an invaluable experience but I feel it's about time I started concentrating on my own stuff.

I write fantasy although I've started playing around with some sci-fi. I'm not sure whether I'm any good at it but I'm having fun!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to spending time here. And I'll keep an eye out for the unicorn. I don't actually know the significance of the unicorn but I'm eager to find out.

Cheers!

Welcome....the treehouse is the place to be if you want to learn about writing; be it Fantasy or even dabbling in SF. Some right friendly people here.

Writing should be fun even as it can be hard work at times, so you have that part down.


But as to the unicorn, the only significance is that She might be mean.

And if you see a group of armored space marines beam in be careful there too. They're not mean but they may not be paying attention.

You can see all types of interesting things here. Maybe a shorter girl with short bright red hair and a white mohawk usually wearing black and listening to techno or rav music. She has a friend that is a griffin whose wing she healed.

Or a taller, skinny young woman with long black hair that hides her pointed ears..some people think she's on the boring side but that can change. She dresses down usually unless she's on a date with her boy friend who legally cares a gun with him every where.

And I like SF and Fantasy too.

Welcome to Hatrack. And nice job you had there. I know a few people who would have cut off their right arms to work for that guy!

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I'm not exactly a "professional" reader. I'm an archaeologist by trade and only ended up reading for SRD due to a series of highly unlikely events (it's a *long* story!). So I've had experience reading but only for him on The Last Chronicles. Not sure if that makes me any more qualified than anyone else however I'm looking forward to getting involved in some of the critique groups. Someone here (I think it was Kathleen Dalton Woodbury) said critiquing is an invaluable way to learn about writing (sorry, I’m paraphrasing). I agree with that wholeheartedly. I’m also looking forward to getting some opinions on my own work eventually.
