What is your background in writing, what would you like to work on in the group, and where you from?

Most my stories exist in my head rather than on paper. I like to develop stories, the people who inhabit them, what they say... but not much else. This is why if I ever seriously pursue writing it will be in the form of graphic novels or picture books. I don't have the patience for writing about an urban landscape or someone's appearance. I am far more drawn to dialogue than I am to scenery and such. I would prefer that these aspects of my stories be shared visually with the reader. So, the most that I have accomplished as a writer are some short stories. I did not seek to publish any of them. Some of them were simply class assignments from college, and others were stories that I shared on forums with like-minded people. I am drawn to the idea of reading others' work and providing constructive feedback. A skills test once described me as a "maximizer" - meaning I like to improve things. And besides, I think this group and its activities would make for good discussion.


Hi all, I'm a native Davisite, born, raised, educated, employed, perhaps eventually buried... but hopefully not. I'm rather an "idea guy" when it comes to stories; I lay out a plot, create some characters... but never get very far. So far.
