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.

Introduction

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.
