New to the site, horrible at introductions.  This is one of those moments where you write then delete, then repeat until you admit defeat.

Oh God I'm rhyming.

Anyway, I'm a big believer in the power of stories, they have the the ability to transform everyone involved with them.  From the characters, to reader, to writer.  Part of me is dangerously attracted to that idea.  So with blatent disregard for the nay saying voices in my head and reckless abandon for my ego, I'm really looking forward to developing my writing.

You want to read a story that will change you? Read this. (possibly not safe for work)

The guy that wrote that lives here. Yeah.


Edit - I should probably mention that we're not all quite as wrong in the head as our buddy Howie though. Not quite.

Good attitude - ego be damned:

“The works of man are folly.
Ideas and actions are sensationalized by a finite mind that creates meaning where none exist. Man makes his own reality as well as his uppermost seat within it.  It’s frustrating to be a part of society and be powerless to change it. 
Ego be damned. 
Ambition itself is a self deluding farce whose goal is nothing but self serving.” (TM - by my ego)

Check your emotions at the door.  Come in and play the freakin game - and get awesome along the way.

Hi everyone.  Pandamask the answer is badly and not often enough, but I'm changing both those things. Generally my stories will involve some sense of the fantastic or improbable.  I get enough grounded living in regular life.

Also, wickedvoodoo I'm not sure if I should be thankful for the warning or worried that I'm playing in the same sandbox.  Either way it's good to be here.
