Author has written 64 stories for Kim Possible, Victorious, and iCarly.
If you need to know, I'm a 56 year old male who currently lives in the state of Colorado. I'm a person of large stature, 6'3" and #240, bald on the top and my red hair has mostly turned white. I'm quite an imposing figure but my gentle nature offsets that nicely.
I've tried my hand at writing many times but this is the first time I've been writing with passion. Story ideas abound so it's only my time and typing skills that thwart me. (I'm no Wade Load, but then again, who is?)
I prefer to write an entire story before posting. A good idea one day may be thrown out the next (or a week later) by something that changes the whole story and new spins on a storyline will cause changes to chapters already written. My initial outline, if there is one (I usually don't concern myself with an outline,) rarely jives with the end product so I've thrown out the concept of writing from a outline. All of my stories are written on the fly. I start with an idea and then dialogue drives my writing then I'll add the descriptive later on while cleaning up and editing the story. Even then new ideas arise and add to or change the story.
The characters in the books I read and shows I watch must have a positive message. As an example: I was drawn (pun intended) to Kim Possible because she is a positive roll model for young girls. She says she can do anything and she does. She has good manners, good grades and is very active with extracurricular activities, plus she has an active life outside of school. She also sees the good in most everyone. (Except the villain... and maybe Bonnie.) I also must admit that I see a lot of myself in Ron. I was the proverbial bottom-of-the-Food-Chain/out-of-step dude who didn't care that he was on the damnedable Food Chain or out of step in the first place. If you need to catagorize what I was, I was a nerdy jock. My grades were just shy of perfect and I lettered in three sports. (Volleyball, basketball and golf. I could've gone pro in golf but that would've only spoil the game if I had to play it for money.) Even with all that, I was an outcast; totally off the Food Chain. I didn't care though, because I never wanted to be normal. Ron could've taken lessons from me.
I've created my own villain by the name of Blackout. He's first mentioned in the story, "Her Mission." I liked him enough to use him for a series of stories. "Her Mission" was the first in the series. "Blackout Returns" is the second. The third story is "The Monkey and the Coyote 2." If you'd like to borrow Blackout, feel free to do so. I only ask that you tell me beforehand so I can give you a few pointers about the character. I have a complete profile of him in my mind, so I know Blackout inside and out.
I will never add chapters to any of my stories once I mark them as complete but I may edit them a bit since I believe no story is ever perfect. I read and respond to all signed reviews. Flames are also welcome; how else can one learn but by learning from one's faux pas. (Tho it might be flamable, I might've had my reasons for doing something a certain way.) So Read and Enjoy, or Flame On!
Oh, and never take anything I write as fact. I'm a fiction writer so don't believe a word of my prolific prose!
