Profile Information

Ever since I was a kid I have always been a creative person.  Good at school mostly, enjoying time being by myself and reading, I was never really one to initiate anything.  One could say I came into this world as a mere spectator, a natural born philosopher.  When I was younger and well into my teen years I was socially awkward, always just skating by on the bare minimum.  Never having any real goals or headlong passions, I took my time, enjoyed life, broke out of that shell with the help of high school friends, and went onto college.  There I found a little bit of a spark that fed from my childhood, the ability and passion to write.  I have always written short stories, little quips, poems, and mediocre essays.  Eventually I found out that there were no classes in creative writing, and journalism was too overly political for my taste, so I managed to get a run-of-the-mill sociology degree.  Your typical down in the gutter liberal arts degree, and it sucked cause even a high intelligent primate could probably pass the courses I took.  Then when I hightailed it out of there I found out the hard way (plenty of times) that this degree was a one way ticket to working at Dunkin Donuts.  Not too bright on my part. 


After that haphazard fling, I found a reknowned interest in writing again.  So after struggling for years with depression, I decided to write poetry describing my transformation.  That led into my old interest of writing short stories and essays.  So for the last 10 to maybe 15 years off and on I have been doing just that as a hobby.  Sure making money off of it would be great, but you would need a good editor, publishing company, a boost in viewership and star ratings, but a hobby was all it would be.  Even though I jump form job to job I landed one that is steady and pays well.  But still I keep my prospects high with my writing poetry and short stories.  I think I finally realized I have a natural flare for it, an untapped reservoir of word power.  So I keep my hobby keen and sharp, and whenever I get the chance, I try to write to prove to myself I still got it, that and finding that there are many communities online that offer to post your writings for free, I might as well make a go for it.
