Hi. So I'm new here. My name is Michael Cassady, I'm not opposed to being called my real name. I am a writer (not yet author) in my senior year of college and I am looking to join a community where I can develop my critiquing and editing skills at my own leisure. I don't mean to put down my local classmates but I find the majority of the work I am forced to critique makes me want to throw my red pen with such force that I impale them and watch as the ink mixes with the blood to form some spotty mess that will be a pain to get out of their clothes.
As far as what I am working on, I'd like to publish an episodic novel not too long after college as my first break into the market (if everything worked so well), and since the best way to improve work is to present it to as many eyes as possible, here I am.
My interests include... whatever is interesting at the moment. Oh, and demons. And dragons. Darker the better.
I leave out anything?

Welcome, Michael. We can always use more participation in the Critiques section. You need 30 posts before you can put up any of your own work for critique, but don't be afraid to join in critiquing what others have written. As you know, it's a great way to improve your own writing skills. I hope you won't feel the urge to impale anyone here with your red pen. Although we have many beginners, we also have writers who, if they aren't published yet, are nevertheless very experienced.
We have an active writer's forum, where we discuss all sorts of matters related to writing. Feel free to join in any of the conversations.
Finally, our monthly Writing Challenge still in progress (for a little less than 1 day and 23 hours as I write this). The challenge is to write a story on a given theme in 75 words or less. There's still time!
