    It's been a few moons since I posted on a real, honest-to-God forum, so I figured I'd better get off on the right foot.

    Like many people on here, I have aspirations to write and publish my own LitRPG series. Despite having these goals for a long time, I never seemed to be able to find the time to write. As luck would have it, though, a certain recent life event gave me all the free time I needed to get things started(read: I lost my job). I'm now up to 50,000 words, and that isn't counting most of the 30 page outline I have for books 1-2 or the plethora of notes and other material I've put together. I'm sure this window of opportunity, as I choose to call it, won't last much longer(read: I need money), but it has done one thing for me: I'm committed now. I'm going to see this thing through until the end.

    So what am I doing here? The way I see it, if I'm going to publish a litRPG story, I need to become familiar with the community supporting the genre. What do people like? What do they hate? That kind of thing. That's because I'm not just committed--I want to do it right. That's also how I write. I'm very detail-oriented, and I don't like the idea of starting a 1.5 million word odyssey without having a clear idea about the direction I'm heading in--hence the outline and notes. I highly doubt I'll even release anything until book 2 has a completed rough draft because I edit a lot. Like, a lot a lot. I don't want to get halfway through book 2 and then have a good idea I can no longer use because book 1 is already set in stone. That's no fun, and it's no good for my writing process.

    I think I've gone well beyond the bounds of a simple introduction at this point, but that's okay, right? I'm just excited to be creating something for once. Anyways, I'll be lurking about, and you might even see me commenting on your thread. Oh, and I almost forgot:
