Howdy from Texas!
I'm rather fond of grammar and spelling and words in general & I'd make a living writing if I could.
I've been writing for my own entertainment since high school (a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.) Been working on a series for a long time but haven't given enough effort to finding an agent. I'm getting better at short stories; writing the one-shots helped. I've also discovered that I can't edit myself too much or I just keep changing things & not always for the better. I have to work on letting things be; sometimes the way the words flow right at the start works so much better than any conscious editing.
Just discovered "Castle". Love Nathan Fillion; you gotta watch "Dr. Horrible" if you haven't yet. Also like "Chuck" & "24". When I have the time, I read a lot of SciFi/Fantasy with a few mystery/thrillers thrown in. Jim Butcher, Laurell K. Hamilton, CJ Cherryh, Jonathan Kellerman, Sue Grafton, Janet Evanovich, Weiss & Hickman, Robert Jordan, Melanie Rawn. Several dozen others.
I'm on MySpace & Twitter (for some reason) as Renate651, but this is the only place I've posted a story.
