Who the Fuck Are You?

I am a 20-something writer from Middle Tennessee. A graduate of Volunteer State Community College, I am now working for my Bachelor's in news/editorial journalism at Western Kentucky University.

After graduating high school, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to do, and I decided to give college a shot. I naturally went to Vol State, being that it was both the cheapest college and the closest. With aspirations of becoming a writer, I chose journalism as a major.

So far, it's worked out really well for me. I graduated May 2003 Summa Cum Laude, and am considered by most of my peers to be an outstanding writer. Shows what they know!

Journalism isn't really what I'm aspiring to; I basically chose it as a day job until I can get a few best-sellers out there. ;-) Oh, and I really dig the travel and adventure opportunities.

In the meantime, I've written a couple of short-stories that I want to publish. My writing tends to be science-fiction, but I've recently broadend my horizons with more "down to earth" fare.

I have more of an imagination than a work ethic. Sitting down and writing a story is excrutiating for me, but I know it's something I have to do. I have hundreds of stories in my head, but a pretty limited lifespan. Both my father and his died of cardiac arrest in their 50's and I'm almost certain to go the same way.

One day, I would love to adapt some of my stories for the big screen. That is writing the screenplays and directing. I know it's damn near impossible in Hollywood, but with my kind of vision, I see everything very specifically, right down to the soundtrack. If someone else screwed with that, I would probably become homocidal.
