Claiming Back My Name

Hi everybody,

this is something that I've planned for quite some time, but I never had the courage to do so far.
When I joined this community over 8 years ago I choose the nick of "Anon" because I thought I would just lurk in the background and never took an active role. Being on SGInc and later here was a secret, guilty pleasure of mine and I was a bit ashamed of it. Back then I would never expected to become an active part of this site - not to mention getting the responsibility of being Librarian.
While being Anon has been fun, there is one thing that bothered me over the last year or so: the feeling that I was hiding from my own fear. As I said SWM style fiction has been a guilty pleasure for me, one that I enjoyed throughoutly. Even so I cme to realize that SWM is the only part of my internetian life that I keep carefully separated from the rest for fear of being judged by my RL friends.
In many ways I'm a coward, I tend to be so afraid of things that often I retract into my own cozy corner and don't even try. too often I'm not afraid of doing, I'm farid of being afraid. Hiding behind a mask or a nick, help to ignore this fear, but now I decided that this has to stop somehow. I'm putting my real name up there, although many of you already know it, due to e-mails and stuff, but ever since I started being online there was a nickname I used consistently: Woodclaw.
So I'm changing my nick here to match and if you look on DeviantArt , Facebook, Steam or any number of RPG sites you'll find stuff by me. The guy behind the keyboard will still be the same.

Stay safe and happy writing

We all need a little private space to wrestle with our deepest, darkest urges. With the advent of the internet and a bit of casual anonymity we don't have to wrestle alone.

In certain circles it's become a spectator sport.

Much respect.

There are times we do need our own personal space for our fantasies where real life sometimes won't understand. I really have known your nick for a long time. At least you have the courage to come out. I respect you for that. Hope to see and read more great stuff from you.
