Over a decade ago while in High School I attempted to write my first story. I was a Starwars fanatic and while it wasn't actually a Starwars book, you could see the semblance. I got about 90% done and became more interested in women than writing. After all it was just something I did when I was bored. Well I had a little cousin who looked up to me and copied everything I did, the difference is that he is now a published writer and just asked me to proofread his third book before he works on getting it published. It was a kick in the ass to me, and I think I have the time to go ahead and write my own now. I have doubts that it will be a large success, but I'm still going to do so more for my own sense of achievement. I'm joining this community in hopes to learn A LOT from all of you about writing, how to create characters, etc. I went about writing in a bit of a crazy way before. I'd write chapter 3 today, and chapter 26 tomorrow, and chapter 13 the next, then find ways to connect these. The musings of a teenagers just wanting to put my dreams on paper. This time I want to actually do it properly and finish. I hope that maybe I can help and contribute eventually, but for now I'm here to learn. A little about me: I'm two weeks from turning 28 and one month away from celebrating my first anniversary. I work in sales and have for about a decade now. I moved to GA about a year ago with my wife just after she graduated from FSU when she was offered her own store to manage within her company. We have hopes of moving north to the Philadelphia area or the New York area as she majored in fashion and retail. I have no children currently and don't really have plans to. My hobbies include a select few online video games, fast cars (import and muscle alike), and beer. I work 6 days a week and enjoy spending my Sunday doing nothing but relaxing and soon writing a story I hope.
