I'm a 17-year-old student from Singapore. I enjoy writing, immersing myself in the characters of those I wish to create in my essays, expressing my own thoughts and feelings in both poetry and essays. I tend to border on the horror/angst genre, sometimes about loss and tragedy. Sometimes writing humorous stuff (which I hope are humourous, anyway).
However, I do not confine myself to any one genre, as I love experimenting and exploring literature, finding radical forms of expression at the same time. I have strong opinions on the world situation and have a tendency to speak out about them. (Thank goodness for censorship!)
Will always remember apiece of advice from my English teacher and mentor, who I am forever grateful to, for sparking off, and encouraging my passion for writing:
I participate actively in writing competitions, to gauge myself as a writer, as well as to encourage myself to constantly seek improvement because there is no shortcut, or easy way to excellence.
I enjoy reading books about history, especially on topics involving the rise of Communist Russia and World War II. Find it simply a topic of interest. One book I've particularly enjoyed is Churchill's Deception, detailing both sides' ideas and motivations clearly. I think Joseph Stalin was a very influential figure of his time, and though he had done many seemingly wicked things, I feel that without his iron-fisted rule, Russia would not be what it is today - a world superpower.
My favourite fiction books are Double Image (David Morrell), Desperate Measures (David Morrell), Riptide (Licoln Douglas and Preston Child), as well as A Walk On The Dark Side: Visions of Horror (John Pelan). By now you would have noticed that I don't really enjoy story from the Fantasy genre much, but yeah, I still appreciate those good books, like Pawn of Prophecy (David Eddings). Too many Davids in the writing industry. =P
Also, I love football (Viva la futbol!), volleyball and basketball. =D
I aspire to write a few books and maybe film a movie, or record a CD, before I turn 40.
Born in Minnesota, USA. Moved to Singapore when I was very young. Wish to go back there one of these days and see for myself what I had missed out when I left. Think some parts of the USA are beautiful. Maybe I should go fly-fishing there too... In the meantime, however, I have to concentrate on my studies. Oh well... Dreams...
Note: I tend to write one-shot sort of essays. Not many with more than one standalone chapter. Thanks. =)
