I am a 37 year old jack of all trades with a love of writing. I've made a hobby of it since I was a teenager, but have recently decided to try to make a serious attempt at a novel.

As a result, I started searching the net for writing helps and advice, when I stumbled upon this site. I have a great admiration for OSC and as I started reading through the forums, I felt that this would be a wonderful community to plug into.

I hope that I can learn to be an efficient critique-r, and as a result tighten up my own writing.

Welcome, ASB.

Glad you're here. If you are interested, I would highly recommend Orson's "How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy". It truly is a remarkable work. Also, his section on "Wise Readers" might help your critiquing - I know it helped mine.

Looking forward to reading your work!
