This is my 'maiden-voyage' post on the good ship 'Playing with Electrons to Make Stories'. I am still in my OMG I'm a real paid free-lance writer now. In the past five days I've submitted my first two pieces to my editor, the kind Axel Carlsson of Headless Hydra press. He gave me a shot when so many other editors turned down my work, so I have a lot of respect for the guy. Currently, I'm running on only a few hours of sleep after staying up all night and into the morning finishing my second piece; I've got a game to run tonight so I had to get it done before the dead line I gave my editor. Taking the advice of a much more talented writer than I, Brian Niemeier, I've created a blog to fill with my demented ideas and rantings. Well, here's to the first few steps in, hopefully, a long journey in the world of published writing.
