I've only just started out, but I hope to write some stories that people will find enjoyable. I'm by no means an expert writer, but I'd like to try and improve whatever skills I may already have. I have several story ideas in mind, but only have two stories that I've actually begun writing. I'm currently working on the second chapter for my first story submission, 'James 2.0'. I have a general idea for what I want to do with the third chapter. Any suggestions, thoughts, or comments of a constructive nature are welcome.

The other story I have, is more of a Fantasy type story, but with elements of sci-fi as well. It will involve magic as well as technology, and the main character will have to learn how to deal with a world where magic is almost common, while he himself is deeply grounded in the tenets of modern science. It will be a sort of 'fish out of water' story, and the 'fish' is going to have to learn to breathe air.

I have a couple of other ideas, that are on the back burner, but I'd like to eventually get them out. One involves ancient history, the origins of man, and the fate of the galaxy. Humanity will be faced with extinction, but not before the true purpose of man is revealed, and given a chance to fight for survival.

The other story takes place far into the future, after mankind has spread across the stars. After a thousand years of space exploration, not a single alien race was ever discovered. Until they discovered us first, and decided we needed to be exterminated. Humanity is fractured, out gunned, and worse still, caught unprepared. Still, with the right people in the right place, at the right time, mankind might have a chance.

As I said, I hope to 'pen' some work that will take the reader on an 'epic' adventure that you will enjoy. Thanks in advance for your support..!
