In short

  • I obviously love reading and writing, as well as planes, and any form of music. I love playing my trombone, and hanging with friends, or just about anything else that doesn't involve me playing football or sitting on my @$*.

    In a bit of a writing slump, it seems. Well, that's life. =^P

    Guide to my feedback: [] dictates an insertion. //=a deletion. +=change capitalization. ~=personal comment. |--|= focus on this segment. {}= Question behind mechanics, or focuses on clearing up confusion.

  • Hopefully my writing. If not, my mad trombone skills. If THAT doesn't work, I'm going to be the best damn fighter pilot in the AIr-Force, flying the F-22 Raptor. (The JSF is ok, too, but I prefer the layout of the F-22)

  • Fiction: Action/Adventure, Alternative History, Historical Fiction, Literary, Military/Espionage, Sci Fi/Fantasy, Short Story

    Poetry: Epic

  • The autobiographies by General Chuck Yeager and Bob Hoover, just about anything 'mech' related, the Inheritance series (Eragon) His Dark Materials(Phillip Pullman, Golden Compass) The Lost Years of Merlin (T.A. Baron) and just about any other good book i can get my hands on, including novels in the Halo or Gears of War series.

    More recently, I've become addicted to the intellectual writing of Orson Scott Card, and all the shoot offs of his "Ender's" series.
  • Orson Scott Card- every "Ender" novel I can get my hands on.
  • Math, library, my futon, couch, plane, car, restraunt, sidewalk(while walking), airport, relatives' house(s), in the bath, or just about anywhere else that wouldn't allow for my books to be damaged. haha
  • Now have a lot of projects on here, gotten a jist for the site. My current little 'pet project' is The Extinction.

    My other projects, though, are essentially scrapped. Good ideas that never really had the momentum.
  • Fiction: Historical Fiction, Literary, Military/Espionage, Sci Fi/Fantasy, Short Story

    Non-Fiction: History, Reference

  • Definetly one of the characters from any of my stories- They're really close to idealistic versions of me.
  • Phillip Pullman, PJ Haarsma, JK Rowling, TA Baron, Karen Traviss, Verne Jules, David Eddings, Orson Scott Card, Christopher Paolinni, Rick Riordin, and a buttload of other authors that i would never have time to list in entirety.(?)
