"Great writers wield their words like a weapon; a double-edged sword to strike their readers with truth where they least expect it. -Matthew D. Forgenti"

To all the lovers of words I say hello!

To start, I am a writer of many genres and styles. I'll work with anything: screenplays, scripts, musicals, song lyrics, novels, poems, short stories, and essays; as long as it catches me, I'll dive right in. Personally, my favorite style are the novels and poems, and my favorite genre's Fantasy, though I do dabble in Sci-Fi. I haven't published anything yet, but I hope to soon.

Words have always been my passion. I've been a writer for over 6 years and I don't plan on ever stopping. It's what I do, makes up who I am and is something I live for. Most importantly though, I feel God has put me on this planet to use my words to present His truth to people in new ways, through the realm of fantasy.

Let's see, other things you should know... I tend to think "warp" style, jumping from one thought to the next in rapid succession til I'm at something completely different from where I started (Example, pancakes-breakfast-bacon-pig-roast-luau). It confuses most people since they don't see the connections I made. But I've found people here get it. It comes in handy when I'm brainstorming and one of my ideas causes a chain reaction and I come up with another one completely unrelated but perhaps even more important.

I'm pretty friendly and love to chat, especially about novels and ideas, so don't be afraid to give me a shout out or request for a collab. I'm always open to join (even if my schedule may say otherwise). I really don't have any dislikes, but I'm best at fantasy, adventure and action/combat. I'm willing to try anything at least once.

NOTE: Ratings of all spectrums are welcome, just give a reason, especially if it's low. I'd like to know what you think I did wrong. Critque and advice is even more appreciated since it gives me a base to work on.

P.S. - If you're wondering about why I have the Nike logo as my profile picture, it's a reminder to myself to just do what I have to do and take the first step towards growing closer to God and improving my life in the process.

Random Facts about me

My real name is Samuel Parchment. I love the irony of my last name. Matthew Donnie (D.) Forgenti is going to be my pen name.

I am a semi-serious gamer.  I'm more of an RPG kind of guy.

I was born with 6 fingers on each hand. Hard to believe I know, but it's true. And don't even think about asking why I didn't keep them.

I can write backwards and upside-down. It's not that hard really

I'm an island mutt, with the blood of a mixture of Caribbean  islands running through me, that and a random dose of Scottish (which is technically also an island now that I think of it).

Ready Player One by Earnest Cline (I've read this book five times in three months)
