I am a new member and wanted to say hello to everyone here. I have loved writing as well as creating new places and people since I was little but haven't had as much time as I'd like to devote to it in the past.

I was fortunate enough to have worked on a MUD (text-based RPG) for several years as their resident historian and lore master so I have some experience with developing worlds and races. I just recently finished with grad school and now finally have time to delve into my real passion of writing sci-fi/fantasy. I look forward to working with you all [Smile]

What's your graduate degree in? I'm thinking history.

Mine's English, creative writing concentration: fiction, creative nonfiction, publishing, editing, criticism, folklore, social sciences, and teaching composition.

Asking writing questions in the assorted forums, particularly Open Discussions About Writing, is one dynamic way to dive into the deep end and engage the membership's brain trust.

Hi Melissa! You've been part of a RPG that lasted years? That's impressive. Must have been successful!

Also, it seems that we have the same writing interests. Best of luck to your writing endeavors, and welcome to Hatrack! =)

Thanks for all the welcomes [Smile] I'm looking forward to diving in.

My graduate degree is in Accounting LOL Undergrad was ancient history/classics and anthro. Not something I would have considered had my work not paid for it, but life throws you those bones...

Yeah, actually the MUD is still around, although those kinds of games don't really get many players these days.

I haven't heard anyone mention MUD in a long time. There was one I used to play many years ago and I guess I just assumed they stopped running them after things like Runescape became available. Welcome to Hatrack!

So howdy there,

Good that you have joined us. For us that is. Not too bad for you either... [Wink]

As you probably know by now this here is a friendly place with people who know a thing or three about writing and who don't mind sharing and who like to write like you do even though some like horror and things like steampunk.

We also tend to like long sentences(inside joke there)

As I said it's friendly here but if you happen to see a unicorn wondering the area run...straight to your doctor. No, No, No just be careful, she can be prickly and snarky at times.
