Hello everyone!
  I'm returning to writing after a long writers block, managing to break it with the WA Summer Camp of 2018. I'm working on a few different worlds with a tendency towards to weird, morbid or wondrous and am always up for talking about them or world building. It is once again my great hope to become an author, though there's some ways to go with that still. Come along on the journey with me!   I am a game developer by day, gamer by night. I'm usually on Discord, except when I'm trying to write. I drink too much coffee and play too many games.
