During a three-year hiatus from software development, I worked as the sole reporter for a small-town weekly. It gave me a taste for writing, and ever since then I have wanted to write a novel.

I can't seem to focus on one genre in either my reading or my writing. I have outlined four novels: one alternate history, one Latter-Day Saint fiction, and two science fiction (one on contemporary Earth and the other in the future on another planet).

The only one with an ending is the LDS novel (takes place in a contemporary setting with no sf trappings), so that's the one I'm writing first. I've got about 10,000 words so far.

I look forward to participating in the community as I'm able to steal the minutes here and there.

Well be welcome.

This is a good place to learn to write but also to learn to work all the way through an outline. [Smile]

Thanks! Are you saying I need to finish the outline before I start writing the prose? :-) For all I know, I have a little bit of a discovery writer in me....
