Hey. I've been lurking for awhile and finally decided to join. I enjoy writing, but most of it is experimental and needs a lot of work before I get it critiqued. I've read a few of the short stories in the self assignment section here and I must say I'm pretty damn impressed. I've been reading Palahniuk since 1999 and have tried collecting as many editions and anthologies as I can. Of course, Palahniuk isn't all I read and I pretty much enjoy the process of reading any book. I think a lot of writers are underrated because of the hype of all the "popular" writers out there (Damn you, Oprah).
I'll look forward to talking to all of you and getting to read more of your work.
