I dabble in writing; I've become increasingly proficient in keeping my condescending nature in check. Haven't written much though. Working on that.

A lot of my experience comes from reading, from books on writing, and from blogs on writing. I've also done a lot of critiquing at Critters.org, and reviewing at The Fix Online. Science-fiction and fantasy are my natural stomping grounds, but everything else is good too.
