I am G. van der Vegt, a Dutchperson who cannot imagine a life within writing does not happen.

My preferred genre is Speculative Fiction, with Thrillers and Mysteries being a close second. I do not usually enjoy reading or writing horror. I do seek to improve my writing skills so I might one day earn some spare change from what I consider to be the most entertaining activity in existence, which would explain why I have joined this community.

A close second activity is reading, and helping others is definitely in the top five, so I'll endeavor to provide some critiques of my own. I'm of the opinion that coddling people doesn't help, so expect my critiques to be honest. This might mean that I come over as mean or harsh, but so be it.

Thank you for reading, and please, bite as hard as needed to improve my writing skills.

Welcome to Forward Motion! You might want to check out the Roving Critique Board to exchange critiques. You'll find it if you click the Crititque Connection link. Have a look around and if you have questions, please ask.

Thank you for the welcome, and don't worry. I'm honest, not mean. I endeavor to point out at least as many things that were good as things that could improvement.
