Misery loves company. I mostly just want to feel less alone as I write, and writers groups are a good place for that. I'm also interested in making friends seeing as how my nearest friend is probably about ten thousand miles away.
I'm a big fan of sci-fi / fantasy. Sir Terry Pratchett is my favorite writer and I aspire to write satirical fantasy that is also wise, hilarious, and tragic.
I've taken years of undergraduate creative writing, though I never got a degree or anything. I like to think that I have become adept at giving criticism while respecting the author's abilities and dignity as a person.
Anywhere is fine with me.
I just moved to Perth. I'm working one of those dreaded 9-5 cubicle jobs writing genomics policy. Other than that, I'm kind of the standard sci-fi / fantasy, gaming, geek / nerd.
