Hello, my name is Brent and I have been working on my first story. I plan to make it a series as I have created my own ship and crew. It has been a lot of fun. I wanted to come online and say hello to fellow fan-fiction writers and ask a few questions. Does anyone want to read it? What is the best format to post it in? Do any of you use any copy protection on your stories? I created cover-art just for fun. Do you want to see it? My story begins at the end of the Dominion war. While I want to have some action in my stories I want them to be more about exploration than catastrophes. I can see enough of those on the news and I want it to be more fun than dramatic. That's why I wanted the war to end in the first story. I once joined a yahoo group for SNW writers. I didn't get around to writing anything until a few months ago, but I did download a list of tips I think were written by Dean Wesley Smith. I found that very helpful. I welcome any advice. Thanks for reading.
