Well, soon after finding my new home deep in the mountains of Utah, I find my new home base in cyberspace. And it is ATS.
As an aspiring war/science fiction writer, I have to find good research resources in order to develop my work. Along that plight, I bumped into the
AboveTopSecret website and was amazed at the amount of material contained within. I thought I knew quite a bit of those things in this world of which
the powers that be would rather us not have knowledge. And I did, of course, but now, thanks to ATS, I don't know what I think I know anymore!
I've been here about a week, and I have to admit, I haven't done much writing lately, however my brain is on fire. I think the story I was working
on just grew by two volumes. That's if I can decide if I still like the storyline.
I'm really enjoying the corroboration element of this site, as I've made new friends whose minds are sharp and open, while healthily skeptical. A
couple of them are Jonna, JustAnIllusion, and Banshee. Look these vixens up if you want to have your mind bent!
I am also in the process of creating a few arch-enemies here as well, which just adds value to the experience, as I see it. I'm going to have a
little trouble with the Cassiopaeans, I can already tell. Good times.
I look forward to meeting new friends, and crushing my enemies in battles of wit. I also intend to contribute quite a bit, as an author's
motiviation is his audience, and this medium has proven quite the cure for writer's block. Hopefully, soon I will be able to conrtribute in some of
the more elite sections of this forum, and collaborate and converse with the truly enlightened whom are no doubt present.
And Simon, man, great site! It's easy to use, which makes it fun, and the abundance of features and options just enhances the experience. Kick
Feel free to drop me a line anytime...
