Hi, I look forward to contributing to the site and interacting. That sounds dry, doesn't it? Just add water. (I've never been great at self-introduction, forgive me)
I suppose I should tell you about myself; I'm 35, married, 3 kids, and I work on sailboats for a living. I'm also an electronics/electrical engineer who loves scifi/fantasy, which I think makes a great recipe for writing. Although I've never actually written anything other than technical documents, I have a feeling this place will be a good start for writing fiction.
That's about all I think you want to know now. Feel free to ask for more info, or feel free not to :)
