On Writing and Blogging

I've been writing stories and story ideas since I was a teenager. I don't know what it is that drives me to this creative outlet, but I love it. From time to time, my job occupies so much of my attention that I have to set aside hobbies such as this, but I always come back to it as soon as I get the chance.

My favorite genres are fantasy and science fiction, as you might guess from this blog. The map in the background is Aerde, the fantasy world I have created and worked on over the past several years, to provide a background for my stories. If you come back regularly, you'll get an opportunity to read stories from Aerde, or about Aerde, and the people and places in it.

In addition, I will probably post some older revisions of the world map, with background on the changes and whatever else I might think is interesting to write about.

I haven't done much blogging before. And in fact this won't be a traditional blog, in the sense of writing about personal experiences or linking to other resources on the web. The purpose of this blog is really to introduce myself, and my writing, to a larger world. Hopefully you'll get a taste of it, enjoy it, and keep coming back.
