Hello my name is James. I'm a 26 year old from the United States. When I was younger I was encouraged towards sciences as due to my bad writing structure and horrible grammar. English teachers were stringent and tended to value these more than creation. I shed my back on it. Leaving it to be left for students who had better hand writing. However while in High School I took a drama class and wrote a screen play. My teacher told me it was while their were grammar mistakes the concepts were brilliant. I then began to read and it was like a breath of fresh air into a dying soul. Fantasy became reality. Wizards, Elves, Robots, Monsters inspired passion. The poetry of Frost and the writing of Dickens spoke to me. Yet my writings went off and on. Poetry here a chapter of a novel there. Until recently when I attempted to write a apocalyptical novel and ended up writing 30,000 words. However I could never connect with characters. Nor did I envision writing horror novels for the rest of my life. Thus, it is now on the self. I have began work on my high school screenplay into a novel. I hope I can gain knowledge from this forums members and I can provide what I can to its members.
