Author has written 3 stories for Shaman King, Harvest Moon, and Hunger Games.

This is probably my seventh or eighth year on this site. When I began reading here I was ten or eleven - yeah, somewhere in there. I didn’t start writing until I was maybe thirteen.

My first piece, Always, my worthless contribution to Shaman King’s fandom which has now been deleted, needed help. It was god awful. I raped and abandoned proper punctuation, spelling, grammar. The original conception bored me, it was so lame, and Always’ characterizations were drier than desert sand. Had to go - yeah.

I’d love to say that I’ve improved since then, but arrogance is a turnoff, and I’m still blubbering. I read more than I write, but I’ll say this much about storytelling: A writer’s job is to grant readers entrance into their heart and mind, to bleed their very soul into each and every character. Commit to your stories or let them alone. Fear commitment? Don’t write.

“Easy reading is damned hard writing.”
-- Nathaniel Hawthorne

I love fiction. To write fiction is to write unbridled, in my humble opinion.

Fiction gives authors a means to express themselves in written color. “Imagine” what you could create. “Roses are red,” they say, but have you ever seen a yellow one? Pink? White? How about green, blue, black, purple? Fiction gives writers an uncanny ability to color any flower any shade and call it truth. Good writers can convince us that, yes, in fact, there are not just red, yellow, pink, and white roses, but also green, blue, black, and purple ones. Go a step further. Paint yours silver.

Find something you are interested in, something you are passionate about. Ask questions. Shape and color your universe, but please remember, we live in an imperfect universe. Humans are flawed. Be realistic about when, where, who, and what you are portraying.

Open a vein and allow your creativity to spill out on paper or in an online document.

“You can’t wait for inspiration; you have to go after it with a club.”

-- Jack London

Learn to accept when you and your story have grown apart, and let go. No sense in slaving over something you just can’t spill your heart into. You have to “feel it” to “bring it to life.”

Some writers have a “genre,” a writing type - romance, drama, comedy, horror, and such. Others, not so much. Whether or not you have a niche, experiment. You might excel in one arena but have a natural passion for another. Me, well, I write sins, not tragedies. I’d hate to categorize my writing. I feel that to label is to limit, and I’d rather not limit myself.

I’m constructing my own livejournal page. The idea is that that is where I’ll post “sneak peeks,” character profiles, and story playlists. Check it out once it’s up.

Wow. Two pages. Huh. I’m sure you’ve heard enough; I’m through. Feel free to contact me. I’m more a people watcher than a social butterfly, but, as I’m sure you can tell, I love to chit-chat.
