Profile Information

Hello there! I'm Shie, Psychology graduate (and now working in a government agency). A friend invited me to join here so I can share some of my works that I used to keep, only letting few close frineds to read them. Well, I've been an aspiring writer since I was in grade school. I have written a lot of stories , mostly short stories, but before, I started to make comic strips first. For some time I realized that literature is a better way to express my ideas, and pursued it until high school, up to now. Writing is like some kind of drug to me.

I'm an introvert, and literature is one good outlet of expressing myself, ideas, or anything that runs on and off in my mind. I tend to hinder my thoughts from other people (I'm not that sociable), and one of the most protruding themes of my works are often about observing people, something psychological in a way that my main characters are usually talking to themselves, with their opinions and perceptions are revealed as the story goes on, and so the readers would have an idea of what kind of person he/she is. I used to put twists and hidden matters on the story, that somehow, might not be expected, favorable or undesirable, perhaps depending on the character's personality. A mystery for instance, or some kind of presentiment.

One thing that challenges me is how to start a story, though I can visualize how the story would go, it's process, the circumstances and how would it end. Also, is the title. I don't use to make obvious titles for my work, and I'm always having a hard time deciding on it. I want my titles to be somewhat connected, yet there's a hint of irrelevancy, some kind of symbolism, or metaphor.

So there it is. Hope I'll enjoy the community here and meet people that can give me advices or some help, and maybe I can do the same thing. :)
