Hello to all in the Foundation!
I'm not one for fancy introductions, but here's me making my presence known. I ran across this site in my e-travels last week and it instantly appealed to me. Being both an enthusiastic writer of short stories and a biologist, this entire universe grabbed me, pulled me in, and refused to let go.
I truly hope this isn't as frightening an experience as the guides and FAQ would lead me to believe, and I hope that I'll be able to make some meaningful contributions to the group.
