Okay, maybe it's just me.
Honestly, I've been writing stories and poems since I could put words on paper. I remember I was in grade school when I proudly set up a tiny typing table, complete with manual typewriter, typing eraser, and dictionary, in the bedroom I shared with my sister. My first opus was a Christmas play where Santa Claus told the true story of Christmas and was diligently researched using the family Bible. I went on to write the prerequisite teen-angst poetry and various tales of fantasy.
In 2000, I decided it was time to get serious about this thing called writing. I joined a local critique group, RichWriters, and they helped me hone my craft while exposing me to their various writing styles and genres. A second critique group, WritersEndeavor, has also helped to mold my writing, with their focus on our shared genres, fantasy and science fiction.
