Greetings! My real name is not important, or else I'd tell you. Where I live isn't important...I have enough to deal with without having a stalker show up on my doorstep. ;) All you really need to know about me is that I'm an active duty member of the U.S. Army, and I'm damn proud of it. That and I am a freewriter...I have been for the last decade at least.

Over the years, my technical skill as a writer has grown and evolved into what it is now. I am quite proud of the fact that I am usually spot-on with my grammar and punctuation. I am also extremely proud of the way I write. Primarily, I write from the third person point of view, doing my best to give readers a glimpse into the minds of the characters as I go about it. I don't always succeed, but I do try. What I really believe I excel at is my portrayal of emotion on the part of the characters, in their thoughts and actions. The way I look at it is quite simple...if you, as my reader, don't feel the emotions that my characters are feeling, then I have failed as a writer. I live to convey the emotions in my words in the most tear-jerking and gut-wrenching way possible. Call me weird, but I'm pretty good at it.

Most of my work here on DA is rather dark...that is for the simple fact that most of the poetry/short stories displayed here are over five years old. These works have followed me on pen and paper, then into the hard drives of my computers. They have traveled all across the Midwestern United States with me, and no matter how dark they are, I'm proud of them all. Each and every piece of writing displayed here chronicles a different part of my life, in its darkest moments, and even in some of the brightest. My life hasn't been the hardest but it has been trying in its own way, and my writing has been my escape for the last decade.

You, my dear readers, are seeing some of the works that saved my sanity during those years of upheaval and uncertainty. My life has been steadily changing for the better over the last year, so the frequency of the darker poems and stories appearing has been decreasing. But I choose to share them, nonetheless.

If you wish to read some actual stories I have written, head over to the FanFiction website, sister site to FictionPress. FanFiction is out there solely for writers to be able to write their own take on their favorite movies or books, whatever really. I have a handful of my own posted on FanFiction. Some are dark, some are not. But each one has been a stepping stone on my own journey as a writer.

My pen and paper are my escape from reality. I am a soldier and a freewriter, and I'm proud of it.

Welcome to my world. :)

Until we meet again...

Welp. Been awhile since I've posted. Once again I find my fingers dancing across the keys to bring you news from my corner of the world.

First off (and most importantly)...can't believe I'm saying this...I am (officially) engaged! Stunning turn of events, anyone? Ah well. I love my fiancee dearly and he brings me joy and happiness. Can't ask for more.

Second, the publishing company that I submitted 'For The Fallen' to late last year for a contest (I didn't win, but the poem did get published) sent me a letter earlier this month, inviting me to participate in their Best Poets of 2014 contest. Only the top 20% of poets that submit their work to this publishing company are invited to participate, and yours truly was one of that 20%. I will be submitting a piece that I wrote a few days ago, titled 'At Day's End'. I'm sure I'll put it up here soon enough; I want to wait until after the contest to see how it does. The limitations on the poem were a little challenging; no more than 26 lines long, and no more than 55 characters per line. Me being a poet that enjoys 'telling' a story...that kind of limitation made it a bit difficult for me to write one. Got it done though, and I'm quite pleased with the result.

Anyway! Good tidings to those watchers of mine out there; I hope you're all doing well!

Until we meet again...
