Hello. My name is Dan, but you all can refer to me as zarley11. I have been writing ever since I was 8 years old, but my parents tell me that I've been writing ever since I could start formulating words. My parents keep telling me that they want me to pursue writing instead of me being a video game programmer, because I have some sort of 'talent'. I just love creating a world within a story, and that's what gets me pumped and excited. For about 3 years now, I have been working on a novel called Before Conflict: Stories of Zarley. My inspiration for that novel has been Hideo Kojima, Tom Clancy and Shigeru Miyamoto. They ar all wonderful story tells and the immense world that they have created in their stories has always captivated me. So I plan to be on the forms a LOT and I hope to read a lot of great stories!
