Author has written 12 stories for General, General, Religion, and Life.

First things first - you review me, I review you. I review you, well, because I want to, no obligation. ;) (Not that I wouldn't appreciate it, of course!)

Gender: Male
Age: Old enough to know posting his age on the Interwebs isn't advisable.
Location: Earth

I'm a burgeoning poet, don't particularly think my stuff is "All that", but am still willing to let the Internet meritocracy decide that for me.

I prefer to write fiction. I also tend to have life get in the way, making me an infrequent updater.

I study Spanish, Russian, and Japanese in my free time. I am a fan of literature from all ages, have some strong (even stubborn) opinions, and love philosophy.

Some of my favorite writers at the moment are:

Fyodor Dostoevskiy
Saint Augustine
T. S. Eliot
J. D. Salinger
Ray Bradbury
Gabriel García Márquez
J. K. Rowling
Hiromu Arakawa
C. S. Lewis
Bradley Hathaway
Brennan Manning
Douglas Adams
Loren Eisley

...and more!

Ode to Lies by Demyx reviews
No, it's not a typo. I'm thankful for lies, deceit and secrets. Yet...may there be a hidden meaning? Not meant to be, but if you can find one, awesome. Inspired by recent events and a challenge to write an ode.

Her blonde hair was matted and pressed against her face; her cheeks had smudged dirt and her white dress was dingy from the rain and mud.

The Sin Within by wait.stop.post-it-note reviews
I really don't know how to describe this. Just feelings of insanity, and impurity. All wrapped up in a poem. Charming.

Story about a guy who is very, very insecure.

Vainglorious reviews
Made up on a whim. Semi-biographical free verse. Probably more cathartic than anything else.

Blush reviews
I promise you a tale of intrigue and desire, battles of wit and wills, emotional and psychological expostulation, social commentary, and philosophical development. Or, if not all that, a story about a cold-minded boy and his disdain for the fairer sex.

Heavy Handed reviews
Me and my religious-inspired poetry, eh? Well, I write what I know. Thematically, this may be considered repetitive in terms of other pieces I've written; but I believe it differs in tone, and logic, enough to warrant posting. Let the meritocracy decide!

Description, Ad Referendum reviews
I was thinking, so I wrote it down. I think it's a fairly interesting and fun way of looking at... writing, in a sense. Or if not fun, very interesting. Also: 'Ad referendum' means 'For reference.'

The Prayer of Manasseh reviews
I have been working on this for a month, and will keep doing so. The last work I had in mind to make that was partially inspired by Eliot's style. Long poem; input infinitely welcomed.

Annoyingly Emo in Both Conceit and Execution reviews
Prose, but arranged in stanzas and lines for effect. Written in ten minutes; Facebook is to blame. Working title, first draft.

More of the Same reviews
Funnily enough, that was the original title, a whole month ago. P But it fits: inspired by Wikipedia and a random reading of Eliot, which almost convinced me Macaronic was cool. Philosophical.

KnockKnock reviews
So much I want to explain about this, but I'm keeping my mouth shut. Suffice it to say there's a lot I hate about this poem, but it's honest, and that, to me, makes it post-worthy. What do you think?

Late-night musings on mistake-making. Note: I don't know why the first line of the poem appears before the title and then again after. It isn't like that on Word, so please just ignore it.
