Greetings! My username of choice is Disgruntled Peony, although you may call me Peony if you prefer something shorter. I'm 30 years old and, while I've taken a long hiatus, I spent a lot of time on writer's forums during my late teens and college years. I'm married and have a sort-of-full-time job, so I may not always be as active a participant as I'd like, but I will do my best to contribute when I have the time.
I enjoy reading almost anything so long as it's well written. I prefer to write science fiction and fantasy, but both of those genres are broad enough to encompass a lot of different elements.
I'm signing up because it's been a long while since I was able to interact with people who have a serious passion for writing and I miss it. My own drive has been lacking for far too long, and I want to remedy that.
I would eventually like constructive criticism on my own work, but it will take time to get anything finished enough to show anyone. (My biggest problem over the last two years has been motivation to finish the stories I start.) In the meantime, I intend to be a helpful reader. I look forward to spending time getting to know my fellow forum denizens, and I hope to learn a great deal during my time here.

Welcome, disgruntled one! I'm actually rather gruntled, but that doesn't mean we can't be friends. I've often gotten jazzed to get writing from conversations on Hatrack. This is a good place to connect to fellow writers.
