Author has written 7 stories for Fantasy, Humor, General, and Play.
Greetings, I'm Xhoyl (not my actual name obviously). I'm 23 and live in Colorado. Pravos has been kicking around in my head for about 6-7 years now. I figured I'd take a crack at writing it down. I won't be done for a while (It's the first of four planned volumes). But I'll write when I feel like it, and no sooner. I am just an aspiring writer like most people here and am currently working towards a Master's in Creative Writing (second year right now, so don't expect too much). This is just an attempt to get the story down on paper (or computer I guess) for future destruction by my hand and hopefully others. As expected, reviews are much appreciated (good reviews with actual critical analysis would be exceptional).
More about Me
I mean, if you're really bored I guess I can give some more details about my mundane and generally uneventful life. Beware, the following paragraphs are going to make me seem very nerdy. This is a common misconception. It is simply too difficult to express in words how much I love writing, so I'll just tell you everything else about me.
Favorites of Stuff:
Books: Sword of Truth series, Inheritance Series, Inkheart Trilogy, Narnia Chronicles, Harry Potter, etc etc.
Music: Look down. Most of my ipod contains game music. I am a weirdo I know, but there's way more good music from games than most people realize. I also listen to some Metal/Rock. I plan on minoring in music composition.
Video Games: Ug, where to begin. Legend of Dragoon (Ending credits theme is magnificent) Shining the Holy Ark (I'm sure you've never heard of it) Shadow Hearts: Covenant (1 and 3 are also good), Beyond Good and Evil (They better make the sequel or heads will roll), All the Xeno's (Xenogears and all Xenosaga's), Not to sound like a fanboy but pretty much all things Final Fantasy (Kingdom Hearts included), Ratchet and Clank (Going Commando in particular), Chrono Trigger (Can't beat the classics), Wild Arms series (3 being the best), Psychonauts (Easily the funniest game ever made), Sonic the Hedgehog 1-3 and Sonic CD (Everything after is mostly crap), Vagrant Story (nothing short of art), Devil May Cry series (Never got into God of War and yet I love these, shrugs), Star Ocean series (A perfectionist's bane and paradise), Metal Gear Solid series (Despite complaints, I love the story heavy model), Dark Cloud 2 (A vast improvement over the first, which I still like), Grandia series (one of the most unique battles systems in gaming), Runescape (If that counts), Plus many many more.
Yes, I know this list is long. The aspiration to eventually write for games is a large factor in this. I commend you if you've gotten this far. Or is it pity?
TV Shows: Arrested Development, Burn Notice, Firefly, House, Scrubs, Community, Mythbusters, 30 Rock, Psych.
Anime: Code Geass, Gurren Lagann, Cowboy Bebop, Full Metal Panic, Full Metal Alchemist, Trigun, Bleach, .Hack//Sign, Invader Zim (Does that count?) etc.
Movies: Inception, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Dark Knight, 500 Days of Summer, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, The Prestige, and many more.
That's me in a nutshell. Kind of. Good enough anyway.
