My heart and soul have always been a bit imprisoned by a great and unique story. Growing up however, I was not much of a reader. For me, it was all about the movies: sci-fi, adventure, horror, and odd gems.
Then I had that moment... we all experience it; I don't remember exactly at what age but when I came to the realization that I wanted to share my own great stories I also realized that I would have to start mining it all from my mind and carving it into paper in some fashionable sense. It was during high school that I found the sincere ambition and joy in writing, likely from the support of a couple teachers. The stories I dreamt up were a getaway from a life and time that definitely did not meet my expectations.
Off at college and after, with all the experiences and maturation, I naturally became more intrigued with the psyche of characters and the exploration of deeper themes such as fate, guilt, purpose in the universe, etc. I grew a fun obsession with character development and finding the realism of any story or situation.
Nowadays at age 32, the same as when I was as a young lad, I still struggle with holding attention and letting myself relax to sit and read a book, but I intend to commit much more time to reading. Don't we all. I'm going to read stories on here and look forward to the inspiration and hope that I inspire some of you.
