I've had a passion for storytelling for as long as I can remember. My writing career started at age two with dictation. By age three I was recording stories on tapes. By age seven I had written a 1,500 word chapter book.

Those were my first steps. My more recent steps started when I read Christopher Paolini's Eragon. It was the longest and possibly most detailed book I had read at the time, and more followed. My writing capabilities shot up after that, and after five years of practicing more detailed and complex writing, I wrote my first novel.
That's my writing history. The rest of my history includes my mother's difficult pregnancy, causing me to be born with hearing impairment in both ears. Learning to speak properly was difficult. I had concentrate very hard just to have a conversation with someone, and I often misunderstood them. This also had a tendency to impair my vocabulary and pronunciation, but eventually I got past that.
At age seven, another horrible thing happened to me. It was discovered that I had bipolar disorder. A mental illness that causes psychotic symptoms and nasty mood issues. I'm stable now, but for years I was living in my own fantasy world, often with imaginary people. What's come out of this is that science fiction and fantasy writing comes naturally to me. In some ways, writing helps me stay mentally sound by putting the things from my wild imagination on paper.
So, that's a short summery of my life. It leaves out a lot of details, including the crazy events of my childhood church, as well as my game design history, but that would make this way too long.
Anything related to creative writing and coding.
