I am a writer who would like positive (constructive) criticism from unbiased, disinterested individuals.  I am more than willing to offer the same.  I have written several short stories and I am currently working on my first serious novella/novel (depends on how much steam is in my fingers!).

I have recently read Writers of the Futuer XXIV, Seabiscuit and A Different Drummer.

Some of my favorite authors include HP Lovecraft, TS Eliot, and Edgar Allen Poe.

Music is an essential influence in my writing.  Some of the music which has been important in setting a mod in my writing process includes:

  • Alice in Chains Dirt
  • Slipknot Vol. 3: The Subliiminal Verses
  • Black Sabbath Paranoid
  • Blue Oyster Cult: Imaginos (especially "Astronomy")
  • Chroma Key: Dead Air for Radios and You Go Now
  • Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
  • Klank: Still Suffering
  • Metallica: Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All
  • Rush: Caress of Steel
  • Testament: Low, Demonic (especially "Demonic Refusal" and "The Burning TImes"), and The Gathering (especially "DNR")
  • U2: War

Cheers!
