I wanted to join RPGFan for one reason: to write. I love to write. Anything. I've written everything from Children's Books, reviews, sports articles, science articles, politcal articles, and a lot more. I just love it. But I had always done it just for fun, and with exception to the articles for my newspaper and such, I've never actually tried to gain recognition as a writer, nor have I really gotten anything published (other than articles and a couple of reviews). So I first looked at what got me into writing, which were RPGs. And I decided to come to RPGFan to try and gain a little recognition as a writer. I wrote a few reviews that were posted, and a lot of people in my area who loved RPGs read my reviews and enjoyed them.

I later took time off from spending a lot of time writing video game reviews, and started writing more Children's books, which I hope to publish a few in a couple of years. I also devoted some time to writing more movie reviews for my local newspaper. I had recently found someone who was interested in my children's book I had been showing around, and he is bringing it into a publishing company for further review. I later found out I had a lot of free time, as I don't have much school to go to. So I decided to try and help out the place that helped me, which was RPGFan. So I'm just trying to return a little favor, as I've still got a lot of reviews I have written recently, and lots more to come.
