Introductions & Welcomes / Hi Kboarders

Hey everyone! This is my first post, but I've been lurking for a while. Just soaking in all the juicy knowledge this place contains.

Quick bio: Newish to writing, but not to story creation. I've spent most of my professional life working as an artist. Worked as both a 3D artist and UI designer in the game industry (Rock Band, Fable 2, Borderlands, and more). I've also done some comic book work (nothing notable), and some storyboarding (project for Zynga). I discovered that I really loved the world-building and character creation process a few years ago during a comic book brainstorming session with a friend.

Since then I've consumed numerous books on the craft of writing. I just never actually sat down to write. I just never felt prepared enough. But screw that! There's a bunch of stories that have been percolating in the ol' noggin for a while now that I've been dying to work on. I've been waking up every morning at 5AM this last month. I'm figuring out my story, fleshing out my characters, writing my outline, and having a blast! Wish I stopped being so afraid and started doing this years ago.

Well that's me. Oh, and I plan to tackle NaNoWriMo next month, so wish me luck :)
