In short

  • Well let us see. I'm a Eurasian and have a great liking for writing and reading. I've been writing since 5th grade. Though my skills never develop due to the fact I suck in every language I know. People would call me more of a math person but yeah.

    I was asked once what motivated me to write. Though I have been writing since 5th grade it was on and off and more of the ignoring-teacher-while-doing-something hobby. Besides writing I also draw and I interchange them a lot during class. The time where I finally decided to make writing more of a serious hobby is when I read the novel 'Candy' by 'Kevin Brooks'. My favorite author, James Rollins, once said there are only two reasons why a person wants to write. It's either 'Wow that was great read! I wish I could write like that!' or  'Damn he writes like a 4 year old! I can write better than him!' Well you could say I was 25% on the former and 75% on the latter. That was back in 2007 or 2008.

    Buffering ..... 28%

    Contrary to popular beliefs writers due die from the lack of feedback, especially on their poems and lyrics. I mean their eyes sinks in, their teeth turns all yellow. They become extremly skinny and the worst of it all, they rot from the inside. Yeesh, you don't like the blood on your hands!

    Write everyday to keep the block away and also it improves your skills
