I am a shy writer.
How can you be a shy writer, one might ask. Well, its called having a flash drive full of stories and the inability to force myself to let others read what I've done. On a whim I put out a story that I've yet to even be able to finish, I'm sure much to the shigrin and dismay of those that set it as a 'favorite'. See, I have this one other problem, one that keeps my stories sometimes from advancing farther than they have.
I'm an optimist of a sort. I have problems writing a story from a bad guy's point of view. Sometimes I can write in those 'shades of gray' but yet it's very hard for me to write a bad guy that is more than just a 'holding spot' until I can get the courage up to try and write something from the standpoint of being 'evil and malicious'.
As I read other peoples stories, I find that I have a different writing style than most. I'm very narrative and in a way, I ramble on about details that perhaps most people could care less about. But for me, some of the things I write about tend to add flavor, add color and background, to make a setting more imaginable, more life-like with small details here and there. I do have 'conversations' between characters but at times, conversations are summarized with feelings or general content and then the story moves on. Some people might not like this, others might find it how they like things.
So, here's my quandry. I need a beta tester or two that are willing to read my stories, give me feed back and possibly even be willing to help me come up with ideas on creating bad guys or even be willing to write bad guys that will fit in with my stories, willing to allow me to trim, rewrite and alter to some extent to fit my writing style.
I am almost 40 years old (not that it matters much) but I'm a child of the 70's & 80's for the most part. I grew up on MacGyver, Airwolf, Misfits of Science, StreetHawke, Knight Rider, High Mountain Rangers and the likes. High tech toys and handsome men (some of whom are as old as my dad -shudder-) But I also like good action adventure movies, TV shows and books. I like the SG1 and SGA series, Moonlight, Blood Ties, Firefly, Serenity, Jason Bourne Series, Riddick Series, Transformers and am currently reading the Harry Dresden series of books. But I also love romances such as Under the Tuscan Sun, A Good Year, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Quiet Man and White Christmas.
So...enough about me...I guess the next step is to put some more of my work online.
