    Favorite Quotes:
    "O man, take care!
    What does the deep midnight declare?
    I was asleep—
    From a deep dream I woke and swear:—
    The world is deep,
    Deeper than day had been aware.
    Deep is its woe—
    Joy—deeper yet than agony:
    Woe implores: Go!
    But all joy wants eternity—
    Wants deep, wants deep eternity." -Nietzsche

    I have been writing for a very long time now. But I haven't been writing as much as i'd like to. I need to read so many more books to help establish my voice as a writer, so I'm always looking for recommendations on people's favorites.

    My style is much more fitted for a graphic novel, a playwright, or a movie script. It's because I'm a media buff who loves Anime, Movies, TV series, and most forms of entertainment(including games/video games) that I think about it in this manner. Transforming that into a writer's voice has been quite challenging. Part of the problem is my description of things. the scenes are very vivid in my head and when I describe things I do it so methodically, that it lacks the luster that makes writing so great. The metaphor, allegory, emotional sensitivity. Like a painting, the words have to draw out emotion beyond the context, it's like deciding what colors to paint in. The reason I don't just stick to a format that would be easier for me is to add a greater depth to my stories that makes it deeper, or artsy. I know these things can be transferred from a written format to another easily, so I really want to get it down like this first, That way I have my stories in multiple formats to reach a wider audience. I think it will help with the dialogue too.

    I always think about how to break the mold. Not because I have some need to be different, but because I know how hard it is to be right. There is always a better, and striving for that is a continuous goal of mine.

    I went to college for Creative Media Technology but after one semester I knew that I could do so much better on my own. I love to draw, I haven't established my own style yet but if I get good enough I will draw my own illustrations. It depends on how the timeframe for this works out, but either way I have enough to do for a lifetime already, so to see it truly blossom I need to put in as much work as possible, to that extent you'll probably see me here for a while, but it still might be a bit before I post anything.

    Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else. - Leonardo Da Vinci
    If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write something worth reading or do things worth the writing. - Benjamin Franklin
