A little about myself... I write mostly science fiction and fantasy, usually somewhere between the two. No idea what my genre would be. Wizards in space! Or something like that. I strive to be helpful and some people have said my advice was helpful. Otherwise, I mountain bike play as much Frisbee as Saskatchewan summer allows and game in the spare minutes I have between everything else.

Read as much as you can, write as often as you're able. Remember, writers make good books, but communities make GREAT books.

//QUOTE
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” 
― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
