So I've lurked around the Guide for a while and noticed there are a lot of fairly regular faces at the core of the community. I'd like to be more active, but it can be a little intimidating getting into a new community off the bat.
So I'd like to know a little more about the people who frequent these boards! Please post a little something about yourselves, what you like, how to best contact you and (importantly!) what you write, if you are a writer.
Starting this off, then:
I use the pen name Khelden Iituem (which is a pain, I know, but it's a longstanding web alias), but I also tend to go by Jack or Roberts. Any of those is fine. I like storytelling (duh?), as well as acting, listening/reading other people's storytelling, learning the fundamentals of programming and cooking. I am a motorcyclist!
The best way to contact me is by MSN or email (iituem-at-hotmail-dot-com), but somewhere or other I have a dusty old twitter account under @iituem.
I write a fantasy serial called The Goatskin Usgar ( http://violetwaterbeast.digitalnovelists.com/usgar ), following the adventurers of a young man searching for his mother in a very different world to our own. I enjoy writing fantasy, though I want to write in more genres as I develop skill. I am still relatively new to this (having only been seriously working at it for a year).
Would anyone else care to introduce themselves, please?
