Hi there! It's twentyitalians. Sadly, there is only me and not actually twenty Italians operating this account. You can yell at me later for false advertising. This profile is to make up for the fact that I have no profile. I also might be pretty bad as a writer.
So what are my inspirations for writing? I particularly enjoy a good fantasy / sci-fi novel that takes readers into the world of the book. Lately I have been following self-published or serial books. On the self-published realm I highly recommend Harmon Cooper's The Feedback Loop series (digital books on Amazon - and they got all new cover art!); For the serial books I am a HUGE fan of Drew Hayes and all of his books (Super Powereds; Blades & Barriers; NPCs). Of the conventional books I enjoy most of the series by David & Leigh Eddings, Scott Sigler, and Max Barry (seriously, read Jennifer Government and all his other work).
I like to think that I offer some good monologues and dialogue in my stories but feel free to tell me otherwise. When writing I am going to stick to the story and not add fanciful or farcical plot devices to make the story work. I also am totally vain and can't stand typos. I reread my work multiple times before posting but sometimes I see what I want and not what is, just let me know!
So why do I stick with Mass Effect as a creative source? Well, the OT games were awesome and, no, I haven't finished Andromeda yet (see Personal Junk below), but there is still SO MUCH left unsaid about the galaxy and normal people's interactions outside of the games and the Normandy crew. Very fertile ground for creative writing.
Random junk: I love commas, I really, really, do. I find it gives the right pauses to dialogue. I am a huge American Civil War nerd and am an active reenactor (Union side only, I'm no traitor to my country). So, if there ever was a good CW source to write fanfiction from, you'd find me there.
Personal junk: I'm just a guy in my 30s, married, and I got the whole two kids and two dogs routine down pat. But I like writing and I like the ideas in my head. So I'm putting them down onto paper. I also run my own gaming YouTube channel (no cross promotion, don't worry) and work a wonky schedule which leaves very little time for anything else. These stories are written mostly late at night before I go to sleep around midnight or 1 am.
