What kind of writing are you interested in? Tell us about your work and what you want from this group.

I write American Gothic, Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and I tend to use a dry/scathing sense of humor. What I'm looking for in this group is to connect with other writers as I've found I tend to learn best simply by interacting with other humans.

What workshops interest you; for instance, technique or motivation or appreciation events, writing skills or marketing?

Motivation. Oh my goodness motivation. I have all these ideas and I type a couple million words a minute (may not be completely accurate) and I still can't bring myself to sit my butt down in front of the computer and just WRITE.

Are you willing to share your original work and participate in critique sessions?

Yes, although I can be somewhat shy. :) Also, I'm not legally responsible for any therapy you may require to recover from either the sheer strangeness I write with or the dishearteningly low level I occasionally demonstrate.

What point are you at in your writing goals and this coming year what would you like to accomplish?

I have published with a traditional publisher once and have since fired them for utter incompetence. I have since gone with an online publisher where I've released three books and three short stories to date. I want to continue writing short stories that entertain and twist the mind as well as release the latest installment in my book series while starting on the next one. In the long run, I'd love to see someone turn one of my books into a movie!
