Author has written 14 stories for Action, Horror, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy.

Hey guys, Tyk here (or as some of you know, Tyk5919 over on TV Tropes). Just your everyday "average" nerdy twentysomething guy who enjoys writing stories. A lot. :p

So, basically I decided to make an account here so I could start publishing any short stories/novellas that pop into my brain whenever I have the time to write them. After posting two stories over the past couple years (and having loads of fun with T.O.T. in particular), I decided to go ahead and start working on my own story ideas whenever they pop into my brain. I spend a lot of my time reading stories and getting ideas from them. Well, I finally reached a point where I said just make the damn things already and stop stalling.

And I intend to do that. ;)

Expect most of my stories to involve anthropomorphism or some form of talking animals or other mythical creatures.

Also! New idea since my current system isn't working! :D

Not gonna bother announcing any release dates for any of my stories--as you all can clearly see, I have an awful time meeting the deadlines. Instead, I'll just announce what stories I'm currently working on so you'll know which ones will be coming out sooner than later. I've also made a vow from this day forward: I will release a chapter for some story at least twice a week. Could be an entry in the Legatum series. Could be something within the Tails Series. Might even be a super secret super ultra private story that I won't announce until I've finished the whole thing.

But I can't keep starting stories and then leaving them to grow lots of dust.

So this way, at least I'll always be working on something and remaining productive, as opposed to just starting on a story and never finishing it.

Also I has Twitter, for anyone interested in any story updates, writing advice, etc. @Tykky5
