Been lurking for a while, thought it was about time I introduced myself and started contributing.
So yes, hello. Name's Josh, I'm a student from Australia. Writing experience is... pretty much nothing, actually, barring some old stories I wrote in high school that make me cringe just thinking about them. Outliers is really my first go at doing something with an actual plot and characters, let alone serialised, so we'll see how that goes. I'm not too full of myself to admit that it's taking some influence from Worm, but I'd like to think I'm also drawing on enough other different sources (Butcher, Harmon, Sanderson, Basu, to name a few) that it can be its own thing.
In the six-odd months its been running, I've learned that I:
- really need to learn HTML
- am a very slow writer
- have a very low attention span
- am very bad at advertising
so hopefully, I can work on some of those.
My interests tend to run towards the fantasy/sci-fi side of the spectrum, and I've got plenty of ideas kicking around, so with luck I'll be around for a while, even after Outliers finishes (if it does finish).
