In short

  • Hello! My name is James. I am 16 years old, and I have recently become entranced by writing. I usually get lost in moral complexity and end up bashing my brains out on the keyboard. I am learning Gaelic; Is ea, Ta se go brea. I sometimes finish my projects, but as I am young I have no real motivation to type out a full story. I find it much better to dabble in different styles and it helps me become a more dynamic writer. Any feedback is welcomed as long as it is constructive and thought-out!

    I act in the Shakespearean manner, but i try not to write in it.

    Oh, and I am a neo-Pagan Druid, but that rarely influences my writings, (if it does, its in a mythical context) so Christians, don't shy away! I love Jesus; as Jesus the Druid of course.

    To me, embracing religion is not mental forfeit, but rather spiritual realization that there is always a chance that we are a part of something greater.

    And so, I say; Go raibh maith agat a Bhrid!

  • Nothing, and anyone who actually puts something here regarding their so-called fame, is a pretentious snit.

    Ha, just kidding.
