Hey, I'm Dennis. I've allways loved writing and was decent at it but I never took it seriously. This will change. I love short stories, both new and old from the greats like Hemingway, Poe, Huxley, Nabokov, Porter, Chekov and Fitzgerald, to their modern Heirs like Updyke, Oates, and Munroe. Also, I love what Akashic has done with their Noir series of short stories set in different cities around the globe.

I love a challenge and to take on literature is challenge enough, not to mention the short story -the hardest form to write in next to poety. I hope this will be a great learning experience as well as a revelation. A revelation of the Natural Born Writter that was allways inside me, just waiting to be awakened.

I ask only of a few things of this group. First and foremost, honesty. I will be honest with you if you will be honest with me. Do not worry about being cruel or judgemental -I'm a big boy, I can take it. Secondly, I need accountability. Left to my own devices, I would either sabotage myself, or never inch my way past the boundaries of my tue potential. With comraderie and shared vision however, I think we can push ourselves to greater heights than we alone could have ever fathomed.

Above all, know that I support you, I believe in you, and in our potential as writers and creatives in general. I will do my best to encourage you, to guide you, to share with you my knowledge and experience and to assist you in whatever way I can.

I wish nothing but the best, and hope we all will rediscover the creative genious within and write madly, beautifully, innocently, and passionately towards our dreams.
