Author has written 7 stories for Haiku, Action, General, and Fantasy.
I'm just a (relatively) normal high school student who has lots of ideas (but usually not the drive to make them a reality). I write because it feels good to finally get them down on paper.
One of my favorite things to do is to take well used tropes and conventions in stories and spice them up so they feel fresh. In particular, I like to deconstruct and reconstruct those tropes and conventions, addressing issues that have not been touched upon much before and making the original idea plausible in a realistic setting.
For example, mages who use electricity (lightning) are pretty common. But have you seen any that use their abilities to do such things as defibrillate patients, or jury rig a railgun, or use electricity to create a plasma light show?
Of course, I do still have my fair share of somewhat original ideas (at least I hope they are).
Unfortunately, I am probably not going to post anything more than a few first chapters of my stories. It has been a very long time since I last was on this site, and that is rather indicative of how my future activity will be.
