Author has written 3 stories for General, and Manga.

Age: 28

Writing style: Minimalist, Jerkyll and Hyde in terms of mood.

An avid fan of the simile, metaphor and their neighbours.

I also don't plan. Outlines and me don't mix very well. Seriously, I have tried before, and the resulting process felt like writing a rigidly planned thesis. But still, that doesn't mean that the plot itself would be a total carcrash. I for one wouldn't have it at all, and would try my very best to steer it away from any potential disasters. Should I fail, I'll send a SOS to my characters. They respond to my call.

Usually.


Current projects

Finished Works

The Observor

A literary piece penned years ago. Details the reflection of a down-and-out novelist recovering his inspiration after going on a bus ride and a journey into his own mind.

Unfinished AKA RPG

My maiden foray into the comedy genre. Being hammered out over a span of 18 days, it is a rushed mess of things that I randomly threw in to have fun. Still, I like to thank this piece for rekindling my love for the craft. I like to think that it's a decent enough read too. Cover art is credited to Jax Creation.
