Hello All,
My name is Michael Thompson. I live in a tiny little town called Haverhill in the great state of New Hampshire in the USA. I am a teacher, a blogger at SuperStarSTEM, an aspiring metalsmith, a dad, a husband, and the devoted servant to two cats, one big dumb dog, and 23...22 Chickens. I am also a writer of Sci Fi & Fantasy who needs others to feed off of. I finished my MA in Fiction a couple of years ago, and without any accountability I have floundered. I tried to form my own online writers workshop without any success,and I'm hoping being part of a group here will get me back on track! I look forward to working with you all!

Been there on the online workshop community setup and fail, and in-person civic and undergraduate and graduate studios. Hatrack is different, most in that all activity is exercise, not assignment, and self-selected. Here, too, members have a broad and different knowledge base from traditional university writing programs' bases, especially as regards fantastical fiction, plus, also, similar appreciation for the tenets of prose composition theory taught by writing programs, and in some ways more intense focus, less general survey study.

Prepare to reap the whirlwind, and welcome to Hatrack.

Tanakh, the Hebrew Bible, Book of Hosea, 8:7, from "They that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind." A proverb used to mean anyone who casts uncalled-for troublesome conduct onto others receives a manifold destructive return. I mean, of course, the opposite, anyone who brings creative writing passion and commitment to Hatrack receives a manifold constructive return.
