Author has written 6 stories for Action, Life, Horror, Fable, and General.

Writing has been a deeply embedded, yet subtle passion of mine that has never ceased to pull me back into its clutches. No matter how long I have gone without writing or how many times I have lost all motivation to even write a single word, one day I'll just pick it back up like no time has passed. In nights that I can't sleep, I read over things I've written and lose myself in the vast worlds I've created which never fails to tire me out. The majority of my stories stem from a single scene from a very vague dream, so the topics are usually original, but it's difficult to come up with new material that isn't a 'rip-off' of some kind. I try to focus on character development, relationships, and world-building to keep things fresh.

The quote, "If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word" from Margaret Atwood, has been extremely important to me since I spend too much time thinking and not enough time writing!

Projects

A list of the current writing projects I have in my head. They may or may not have been published, even partially, on this site, but it's waiting in a word doc on my desktop.

-Gravitational Pull: a story that was started perhaps 10 years ago and has been on and off in terms of development. It is my pride and joy and it will be released once I feel like it's ready. It has been the one story that I absolutely adore and have given ample amounts of time to develop every aspect of the plot.

-Running Silent: discontinued at this point. I felt like it was too similar to Hunger Games and other stories involving the same plot point. It's going through the process of rewriting and will be posted under a new title: Proxy.

-Red Tape: writer's blocked. I wanted to write a story about the delicate nature of government that revolved around the phrase "history is written by the victors", but I was not able to develop enough plot points to keep the story going and still make sense.

-Primal Sense: undergoing plot development and outlining. I find potential in it since I have not found many stories dealing with the topic in this specific form.

-The Magnetic Ability: a mildly successful story at it's first release. It was a story just for fun and based on the series Maximum Ride, however now I feel like there's potential for a more original plot and character development.

-Parallel: undergoing plot development and outlining. I wanted to write about the underused solution to fixing an irrevocable mistake, dimension hopping (like in Rick and Morty!) as opposed to the more common time travel. I had no idea what else to do besides that though so I'm stuck, haha.

-The Fear of Death: a short story that I hoped would spark some inspiration for 2016 NaNoWriMo. I got busy with school so I never got to expand on it more, but it's been released to see what people think and how I should shape that world.

What do you consider the most abused word? That is, which word is used so often and in such inappropriate situations that one can almost say it is being misused? After reading this piece, the result might just shock you.
