About Me
I'm a 25-year-old active duty member of the United States Air Force. I've been writing since I was 13, starting with an online forum that I resided on for a decade and eventually even moderated; then I had a few other stints on various forums before finally branching out into the solo work I've always wanted to get around to. I've done a great deal of growing over the course of my "literary career" and hope to continue improving.
Type of Writer
I love writing fantasy fiction, and I have plans to branch out into modern fiction once I finish my current project
Writing Style
I'm a big fan of description, enhancing prose/flow with effective punctuation, and a firm believer that characters drive plot
Interests
Writing, obviously, is my favorite hobby, though I also enjoy mixed martial arts-- spectating and participating-- and, of course, video games. For the last, older rpg's/strategy rpg's such as the older Final Fantasy Series are particular favorites
Favorite Genres
Fantasy Fiction (If I wanted complete realism, I'd just go outside :P )
Favorite Books
1.The Wheel of Time series 2.Elantris. I plan on adding to this list one day, but those are the only ones I've actively read as an adult. I spent most of my free time writing on forums when I was younger; now, I use it for school and solo works
Favorite Authors
1.Robert Jordan 2.Brandon Sanderson (I'm a VERY picky reader, so those are the only two I've really gotten into since coming into my literary "maturity"; however, there were plenty of great writers I was involved with back in my forum days)
Favorite Poets
I'm not exactly a fan of poetry. There are the rare few that I've enjoyed, but by various authors and too few to say that I have a favorite poet
Favorite Music
1. Chevelle 2. Slipknot 3. Red Hot Chili Peppers 4. Rise Against 5. Brand New. To be honest, I listen to a very wide variety of music, but as far as what bands hold more spaces on my Ipod, those would be them
Favorite Movies
1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 2. V for Vendetta 3. Fight Club 4. Requiem for a Dream 5. Inception 6. The Fighter 7. 300 8. The Watchmen
Favorite Shows
1. That 70's Show 2. The Big Bang Theory 3. Heroes (season one, anyway) 4. Game of Thrones (aren't we all?)
