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...

A few months ago, I sent in one of my poems, For the Fallen, to a poem competition that is hosted twice yearly by the Eber and Wein Publishing company. I returned earlier this week from an out of state training event and found a couple letters from them. My poem has advanced to the semi-finals and will be published in an upcoming anthology of poetry called This Time Around!!! I can't even begin to describe how thrilled I am by this news! I am hoping my poem continues to do well in the competition, but even the fact that it is being published is huge to me. I'm so proud!

Anyway! I'm off to do some more writing. Merry Christmas, and I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!

Until we meet again...
