Obviously I'm a newcomer here. I joined the forum some time ago, but got caught up in other things and never made any posts. I am now remedying that. I'm hoping to learn a lot here for my writing and just because I love maps. I may not be too active, but I'll certainly read a lot (I already have, actually, heheh).

A little about myself... Hm... Well, I'm an aspiring author who also enjoys reading, drawing and sewing, among other things. My current writing project includes an apprentice cartographer as one of the main characters, so I've become more and more interested in the art since starting it. My own map drawing skills are basically nonexistent, though, lol. I'm particularly interested in drawing maps with traditional media rather than on the computer.

Anyway, it's nice to meet you all and I look forward to learning as much as I can about making maps here.
