Greetings! If you're reading this, thank you for taking an interest in me and my writing. For those of you that have been following my sporadic postings on a couple of my stories, thank you for being faithful. A lot has happened to me in the past three years. I've learned some hard lessons about who to trust with my 'time' and from early 2013 to July 2015, I became involved with a British themed fan convention and let the owner of said con dictate my time. My writing suffered, my home life suffered and my passion for gardening suffered. During this span of time, I also lost my job of 11 years and unfortunately took a job that made me utterly miserable. Thankfully, I only worked there a year as I managed to find myself a fantastic job. However, it was amazing how much of a downer being let go of a long term job and getting a job with a wretched boss in wretched conditions could be. It affected me mentally and emotionally, draining what felt like the very life essence from me.
But now, things are on the mend. I'm finding the desire to write again, to dream again and be myself again.
For those of you that have never read my stuff, 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 and a romantic of sorts. 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.
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, Firefly, Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, 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 to those who are just seeing my stuff for the first time to those who have hung on and prayed for updates, thank you for your faith and support. It is greatly appreciated!
