Thanks for joining! What brings you to our group?

This group was recommended to me when I joined a church-based writer's group; I was told this group had a lot of scifi and fantasy expertise that I could draw on to develop my scifi series.

What would you like to accomplish in your writing each month?

As time permits, I want to revise the books I have drafted to publishable quality.

What is, or are the things that hold you back from your writing goals? Would consider taking courses to improve your writing skills, or increase your chances of being published?

Time management. I have a full-time engineering job that sometimes requires long hours, while I'm also trying to maintain contact with my friends and family.

What do you write, when you write? Fiction, non-fiction? Genre? Where in a book store would you books land?

I almost exclusively write soft science fiction novels, though I sometimes toy with fantasy or hard scifi or even short stories. I want to see my books in the same section with Timothy Zahn, Lois McMaster Bujold, and Wen Spencer.

Are you published? Have you published? Do you want to publish? Have you considered Self-Publishing?

I have not gotten anything published, primarily from a lack of trying. I'd like 1-2 finished drafts (and had been waiting for my BSE) before I start trying. But I'd like to try the traditional route for a few years before considering self-publishing.
