Hello there everyone!
I've just joined this amazing community, in order to share my various collections of short stories, as of late.
I've started from mid-elementary school, and continued ever since, with smaller and greater pauses. Done my share of shelf writing over the many, many years, but since I couldn't stop grabbing a pen and a paper, I thought I'd share my journey with the world. Last year was the turning point, when I gave in for my relentless urge to create, and I began to write a small story, that quickly exploded into a massive series (currently 4-5 books). I briefly self-published it, but it wasn't up to my standards, as I had serious time restraints (it's 300+ pages long still). So, until I can properly finish it, I chose to write fairly short stories, in various topics/genres.
I'm a big fan of the great classics and kind of want to expand their legacy, by creating smart, interesting and thoughtful stories, that will make you think and wonder about the possibilities. I really think that in some way I found my true calling with writing, and let me share a quote to explain why that is:
“The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, or gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion.” ― Terry Orlick
I wish the best for everyone and may your dreams come true, and stay positive, no matter what!
