Hi, everyone, I'm Tim and I've been lurking for a while so I feel like I know a lot of you fairly well already, but I felt it was time to introduce myself!
I began writing when I was young, around elementary or middle school age (30 years ago!
). I had a wonderful encouraging teacher in middle school, but fell out of the writing habit for quite a while. I would make a faltering start at writing something every once in a while and I spent years and years finding one "creative outlet" after another until I finally asked myself why I wasn't putting my full energy into doing what I loved to do: writing. So, I put on my serious hat, sat down, gave it a shot and found out what I think I've always known: there is nothing like it in the world!! Sometimes it's hard, and I mean hard, damn work, but there is no feeling that even comes close! I've found the love of it again and my little head is practically teeming with ideas now! My Q2 submission was the first thing I've written in over 10 years and the first thing I've finished in probably 20 years, but there are many more to come!
"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time...like tears in rain...Time to die." -Roy Batty
