Profile Information

This is where I'll be posting finished works, and so posting will be few and far between. If you'd like to see the stuff I've written but not yet finished compiling, check me out at http://kingpyg.tumblr.com/.

I'm an author, or at least I hope to be. I guess my inspirations would be Hemingway and McCarthy for my fictional stuff, and Upton Sinclair for my political stuff. I'd like to be published one day (wouldn't we all lol), ideally with a annual piece in some magazine.

I guess my style would be modernist/post-modernist. I write a lot of stuff set before the 20th century, at least now I do since I got hooked onto the American Westward Expansion after reading Oil! and Blood Meridian. However, Bangkok is my home, and so my more emotional, personal pieces will be set there.

I'd like to write a novel one day, and certainly tried to at one point, but as Hemingway said: "“Never pump yourself dry. Leave a little for the next day. The main thing is to know when to stop. Don’t wait till you’ve written yourself out." In that regard, I've embraced the short story form, and so I guess that's how I'll be writing. Maybe one day I'll sit down and put it all together, and find that there was a novel hiding from me all this time.

But I'll let that figure itself out. Hope you enjoy the read when it does :)
