While I don't give out my name online for security purposes, you can be assured that if I knew you personally and was positive that you weren't a perverted pedophile, a government official, or an alien, I would gladly be very open with whoever you may be. Hopefully, I haven't come across already as a paranoid, safety obsessed, weirdo who gets his thrills from popping bubblewrap (not to say that it isn't fun, I just don't specifically make time to pop bubblewrap. I'm sure from the former introduction, I've been introduced as exactly what I've been hoping not to be introduced as. Thus, with my laziness overcoming the will to actually undo the damage I've caused, I'm going to entirely redo my introduction in a completely different style. Well hello, all you fictioneers! My name is currently unavailable, but nonetheless I'm gonna have a giddy old time giving a proper- No. I apologize. That was uncalled for. Let's try again. Hopefully, I'll get it right this time. As you can tell from the pen name stated somewhere on this page, my name is Lasair97. I'm not going to go into the mechanics of how I decided this name, but if you can figure it out, props to you. I am a passive writer who doesn't necessarily write frequently and professionally, but nonetheless it is something that I love to do. Generally, I write science fiction and fantasy, with maybe a realistic fiction in the mix. Somewhere. My biggest problem is that I always get bucketloads of incredible ideas that would be great on paper, but they never get that way. They stay ideas, to the end of time, left floating around in the unreachable corners of the void that is my mind. My greatest strength, as some have told me that I have, questionably, is pure natural talent. I, of course, disagree, but that may just be me being my own harshest critic. I hardly ever find anything I write satisfactory, even when others say it turns out fine. There's always one word, one sentence that doesn't fit, and I'm sure many of you have had similar problems. Everyone does at one point. I find that my writing style is darker than most, and unfortunately, some of my better works do not always turn out for the better, plot-wise. And while a work may turn out for the worse for the character, I try to look beyond beginning to end, start to finish, and instead try to find the experiences the character went through, the development, the feelings and moral differences in a society. It's those little things that can make the difference between a great story, and a simple summary. My greatest weakness when it comes to writing is the simple disregard for grammar and spelling. A huge pet peeve of mine is when I see something some author has posted that has such terrible grammar that phrases and paragraphs are quite nearly incomprehensible. That special world that we're all taken too when we read where all the troubles of the world around us are forgotten can disappear in the blink of an eye when we read pieces of literature that we can't even understand. For me, when I read something like that, it makes me painfully aware of everything happening around me and turns me off of a reading mood, even after I've settled into that one comfortable part of my bed and pulled out a book or my iPod for a good story. My absolute favorite thing to see in a world where illiteracy is slowly pulling more people into its grasp is a well-written story that not only has a spectacular plot with twists and turns but also a deeper meaning, one that reflects the authors feelings and past experiences. And while some of the more conceited people may look at a book and care not for the plot and only read to find out what the author is thinking, I read a story for its entertainment value, and only when I reflect on it later see if any of what I read might have something to do with an author's life or morals. While both aspects of storytelling are important, a balance between the two is incredibly important. With my two failed attempts at an introduction, I really do hope I've made up for them with some sort of decent view on literature for you to gnaw at for awhile, and that you feel like reading this bio was not a total waste of time. I could, if I had wanted to, written this entire thing in a tone that was fake simply to get you to like me, but I decided not to for one reason alone, and that is purely because I like you guys.
