Welcome in, mate. Now I'm not the latest add in the group. All of what Kerrz said is good, and I gave a bit of background introduction too. Dunno for the others, but it's kind of nice knowing who you are.
I've been on and off of Myth Weavers for over three years now. I have played in a couple of games, but I prefer to DM. It's been over a year since I was active in a game, and am planning on starting a 3.5 campaign when I get back from vacation in July. I wanted to be a part of the Writer's Guild because I recently decided that a lot of my priorities needed to be reorganized. I wanted to focus on what was really important. I spent my time on things that ultimately were of no consequence, hobbies and such that were not constructive. I sold my Warhammer 40K miniatures and vehicles to a co-worker and have seriously cut down the time I spend playing my Xbox360. I am also interested in buying a laptop so I can write and log in to MW at work.
I have wanted to write professionally since I began reading my father's fantasy and science fiction novels while in elementary and junior high school. After I got introduced to AD&D in 7th grade, I quickly gravitated to the work of R. A. Salvatore, Ed Greenwood and other D&D/sword and sorcery fantasy novelists. I am now seriously pursuing writing with an intent on eventually becoming published, a longtime dream of mine. I don't want to be rich or famous, and I don't know if I want to be a full time writer. Getting published and having people enjoy my work would be enough for me.
Anyways, I think I've gone on long enough. I look forward to writing with you all. God bless.
