Hi, my name is Connor. I began my journey as a writer (though it may be a puny journey, I still traveled) in third grade. My teacher intended to send in our short stories to some corporation that chose a bunch of them and published them in an anthology. For my short story, I wrote about the "true story of little red riding hood." It was about four hundred words or something, but it was still a story and pretty creative at that! Obviously, the company chose my story among many others to be published (otherwise I would not share this). The next year, my fourth grade teacher decided to do the same, but for some odd reason, I think it was just me who participated in my class since my teacher knew my story was in the prior year's book. Anyway, I wrote a story about this family whom a treasure belonged to and only one of them was alive or something. Long story short, they didn't find the treasure and it was basically lacking a decent plot. Nevertheless, it was published (the employees must have had a late night and decided to just throw the rest of the stories in anyway).
I discovered recently while I was coming up with new story ideas that I could not stay away some form of death or suicide or sacrifice. Except for the children's story that I wrote ("Kersnoo saves Moogite", which is no longer on the site), the other short stories contain lots of death. This kind of sickens me, because I consider myself pretty innocent and I have a very clean mind compared to other people my age. I really don't think about killing and cannibalism on a regular basis. Hmmm. I thought an author's stories reflected their life. I guess it is just because I have had no great experiences to write about, and any fantasy story I try to write is crap. In my opinion, after fantasy and action/adventure (murder), the rest of literature isn't as great. Of course, it is still enjoyable. Ugh, nvm.
My interests: gardening, writing, politics, academics, finance, technology.
Pet peeve: people who chew their food like a dinosaur eating a boulder. (If that simile wasn't clear, I was trying to say I don't like people who chew their food loudly)
I just glanced at everything I wrote here. It is pretty random, but I guess that is me.

Favorite quote: "Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
