“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.” – Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
Ask anyone who knows me, I don’t really do labels. I make a little bit of everything. I dabble in all sorts of genres when I write fiction. I’d like to try every kind of creating at least once, if I can. I’m not an expert in much (except for voice design!).
But I can weave a good story. I can craft a solid cast of characters (especially if it’s ensemble) with strong motivations and bounce them off one another and a few plot devices. I love to unspool plots that circle back on themselves, to world-build casually but well, to power through a first draft in a few short weeks.
I also love to collaborate. I’ve especially enjoyed joining forces with visual artists and other writers to build shared worlds. I enjoy helping others take their stories from vague ideas to “characters, motivation, and plot” with a solid outline.
PSA: I’m not on Twitter! Since the Elon takeover, Twitter has exploded with misinformation; as a formal journalism student, I will not participate in its perpetuation. If you see someone on Twitter claiming to be me, it’s not!
