About me:

Right, so, I suppose the main thing about me is that I tend to be rather slow on updating. I'm talking sometimes months (and months) between updates. My Muse can be horrifically flighty, sometimes, so we'll blame him.

Of late, I have not been doing much in the way of writing, as work has been keeping me quite busy. In Real Life, I am a mobile x-ray tech, though I also aspire to be a novelist - if I can ever get my Muse to focus for that long.

Anyhow, if you choose to give my stuff a read, be sure to let me know what you think. I'm a sucker for reviews, even if I don't always answer them. Also, if you answer one of my Challenges, be sure to shoot me a message and I'll give it a read.

Regards,

Dream Painter
