I write. A bunch. It's kind of my thing.
I read a bunch, too. I like fantasy. I like science fiction. If it's a moderately popular fantasy book (excepting YA--I can't seem to keep up with YA) there's a good chance I've read it.
I have a deep respect for the written word, and for this grotesque excuse for a language we use to express it. Generally I take my writing, and my reading, pretty seriously; I'm not really the guy who can ignore the fundamentals if you've got a nifty plot or a super dreamy lead character. A story starts with the little things, with the bits and pieces that fit together to form something greater. Get that right. Then work on the rest.
Of course I don't expect anyone reading my work to give me a free pass, either. Let me have it. I can take it :)
Favorite Authors: Patrick Rothfuss, Robin Hobb, Steven Erikson, Joe Abercrombie, Frank Herbert, GRRM
Favorite Movies: Who cares!? It's all about the writing :)

Comic books and Hemingway an unholy mixture make. Written for the UWSC Senior Writing Challenge.
