"If love was a choice, who would ever choose such exquisite pain."

Okay here goes, my name is Adrian, I am 24 years old and I did not discover that I was a writer until quite recently. I read a lot of books, my preferred genre is romance and so naturally, romance is what I aspire to write though I currently seem to me at an impasse and greatly in need of feedback from learned people so I figured, why not other writers?

Here I will just post something that I wrote about myself some time ago, I borrowed and paraphrased phrases from other sources so you might recognize some of them, but make no mistake, the overall creation is 100% mine.

I titled it "Character Insight."

My perspective of the world is a mix of speculation and mental experimentation, mostly conjecture coupled with naivety that what I see on television is real. I am a watcher, an outsider who attempts to feed emotionally off the interactions of others, believing that somehow I can feel the emotions of others better than they could ever hope to, thanks to my never having had the opportunity to become jaded by life's trivialities however small or mundane.

Such subtleties I feel can only be appreciated by someone on the outside of reality as most know it, someone like me. I've been disconnected from the mainstream world for most of my life yet somehow I feel as if I have a better understanding of it and its many components, given that I am far removed from the picture so as to be able to see it in its entirety, free to inspect and criticize it having no physical or emotional attachment to it.

My solitary view of a world I know almost nothing about outside of wishful thinking and my sole window into human interactions and worldly information, something many others see as simply an apparatus I view as a paramount and fundamental defense against insanity however formulaic it might seem.
