An open window to my life when i wanted to be a writer, a dream that I hold dear, still. I doubt anyone would actually read it, but for those who wonder of my way of writing or how i started. I do plan on writing a book based on my experiences with love that has made me into the person i am today, although that book will be based on real events, I plan on keeping it fiction enough to provide an ending.

When I Started To Write

 

I went to school in a small town providing only basic education. At an early age, I realized there was something different when comparing myself to the people I spent time with. Although, few are very dear friends, we tended to branch off into different paths when I spoke of higher thoughts. I have a few friends that were able to relate to me throughout the years and are actually reading what I post, for this I thank them. I was young when I fell in love with art, along with a girl who actually helped me to start following my creative plans. Besides drawing and painting, I began to spend a lot of time writing, I even took requests from her, and wrote short unique stories that I later destroyed.

  My freshman year is when I started to write journels full of short stories, poems, and songs; several of my teachers throughout high school had also tols me to pursue writing. Sadly, after a break up and having to move to a bigger town, my mind suffered and was corrupted from the women I thought each to be the one... My stories therefore, began to feed off of my emotions while I wrote. Examples are The Rise of Dawn, Lady in a Blue Dress, The Secret, Those Who Feed, The Soldier Returns Home, along with most of my stories which is why they seem to take a depressing turn.

At the end of junior year I met an amazing freshman who's parents did not like me; And so, we kept our love a secret while I moved back to Poteet with a pesronal goal. To be the last of my line to graduate there. This girl had also influenced my stories for the years leading up to her own graduation, after a month later she made her leave as a Deceiver, while my stories again fed off my feelings. I plan to pursue writing as a teacher or by other means, I hope you have gained what you were hoping to find from this writing of how my writing began, and why they are written as so.

I would like to add, my main works are of the Z' Arth tales, created when I needed to be distracted the most and where my heart should be. Z' Arth is named after someone very special to me after an ultimate scam of a girl's deception, Z is providing me the motivation to move and write along with the need to study in college, and one day I hope to be someone she looks up to nevertheless where I grew from and the education that was denied to me.
