What kind of writing do you enjoy the most?

I favor fantasy, however I've been known to dabble in science fiction. My current writing tends toward a mixture of sci-fi and fantasy however.

How long have you been writing or wanting to write?

I've been writing works of fiction for over 22 years, I have never had anything professionally published. I have had short works published in Marrow and Marrow 2 at UHCL, and in several editions of the Bayousphere at UHCL.

Are ideas hard to come by or is it time you need?

In order of necessity, I need community, time, and ideas. The balance of those in percentage is 45% community, 37.5% time, and 12.5% ideas. Wait! Where's the other 5% go? Math skills, I need 5% math skills.


I'm 37 and unemployed. My Masters in Literature from UHCL has helped me extensively to get to this point in my life. My motivation lies in necessity, and I find myself seeking needs at this time in my life, and my latest need is community.

What Marion F. Carpenter J. is saying about this Meetup Group

Still not 100% sure, it's only been my first visit. I'm eager to see who shows up for the next critique group meeting with materials.
