Escaped from engineering into IT and never looked back. Quite good with MDX but now have my 'dream job' which combines websites and databases with sailing!

I race dinghies, practice karate, and devour books.

Married with 3 kids - thankgoodness for working from home!

comment How do I better handle my nameless main character when trying to retain mystery?
Good question! I was struggling with this same issue myself, though I did not want to create mystery. I wanted any reader to be able to believe they could be the main charachter, and to secretly enjoy the story as if it was them in it. I thought a name would interfere with the ease of belief.
