What's up, and welcome to my FictionPress profile.
To get the basic information out of the way about who I am: My name is Josh, currently 24 years young, and I am a university adviser/high school mentor, life couch, and fitness instructor living in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area of California. I made my FictionPress account way back in 2005 (almost ten years ago now!) while in high school, but after about two years I found myself abandoning it for no reason other than I was a teenager busy doing typical teenager things.
But, low and behold, September of 2014 rolls around and I rediscovered my Fictionpress account and I thought, "Why not give this another try?" I had never stopped writing, I had just stopped uploading it. One of my stories from back in 2005, The Elements: Hours of Darkness, was never scrapped. In fact, over the past ten years I have been molding and redefining its story and characters over and over to the massive vision that it is today spanning several hundred Word documents full of biographies, outlines, and ideas (seriously, it's crazy.) Any other stories that may eventually find their way on here have also been in the works for a few years now, influenced heavily by many life experiences through college and beyond that have resonated with me.
As a working professional in being a big kid in an adult world, I appreciate any reviews given, and value constructive criticism on my work. I only write as a hobby, but I still desire to present to you a wonderful reading experience. I hope to get chapters uploaded and stories updated on a fairly regularly basis, however life does tend to happen whether we want it to or not, so please be patient. I always have several chapters of each story already written out that are not published, however your reviews do help when it comes to revising these chapters for your future enjoyment.
I welcome you to message me with any questions, concerns, ideas, anything! I'm pretty good about getting back to people, and frequently asked questions will probably be addressed here on my profile in due time. Thanks in advance! -Anters-
Extended Synopsis: During a war-stricken era, an attack in the ongoing Rampant Galactic War by The Elite, an assemblage of masterfully skilled warriors and assassins led my political mastermind Lord Jeres, brings civil unrest and tension when Earth's neutrality is threatened and its involvement in the war seems inevitable. In the city of Towerin, Oregon, five young adults each gifted with control over one of the spiritual Elements have established themselves as "modern day superheroes" known as Elements Team attempting to live as close to normal lives as possible. However, when they are asked to step in and help locate the prospect of a possible sixth Element hiding within the city possessing unknown motives, Allen, Lelu, Crüsh, Evelyn, and Connor begin a journey that will link the future of the war with the fate of their own survival.
Status: Prologue Parts 1 & 2 are available for reading. Chapters 1 - 5 are being revised with final drafts. Chapter 6 is being written.
FAQs about The Elements:
Why is the prologue split into two parts?
I have discovered (the hard way) that FictionPress readers have a tendency to dislike lengthy chapters on a digital screen. The prologue was several pages long in point 9 font in my word document, so I decided to split it into two separate parts in order to not deter potential new readers with a massive wall of text reminiscent of a long-winded Wikipedia article from the get-go.
