I've decided to post here, even though this is my third time returning to this site. The first time I was here, I honestly can't remember my name, but it was some years ago. I also cannot remember why I stopped coming here.
The second time, I was under the name JustinProse. Some of you may remember me from a while back. I had been dealing with a lot of medical issues (I have an anuerysm, or rather had, since this last december I finally had invasive brain surgery to remove the AVM).
After recovering, I first set out to get a job. I have had one for a month or so, and with that solidly in place, I've been able to focus a lot more time on my writing. This was always my favorite place to go to submit my own work, view the work of others, and enjoy an environment of helpful writers/editors.
I decided to make a new account because I don't feel as much the same as I did then. I have looked through the pages while I waited for my account to be registered, and I recognize some of the names. I'm sad to see that the First 13 challenge died off, and I'll definitely join in when it starts back up (fingers crossed).
In short, it's good to be back. I've missed this far too much.
