"And now a continuation of our previous investigation into whether I am literally the only person in the world, speaking to myself in a fit of madness caused by my inability to admit the tragedy of my own existence." -Cecil Palmer, Welcome to Night Vale

I'm the kind of writer who can never be satisfied with anything I've done. I have to constantly go back and re-edit my stories to the point that I pretty much destroy them. I'm also not all that much of a collaborator; I can toss around ideas, but once the actual writing starts I have a hard time keeping up. I'm hoping to work on fixing both of those problems with the stuff I post on this site.

I am a chronic procrastinator. I take criticism much better than I take compliments, and I'm fully aware that I'm probably my own worst critic. I'm an odd blend of perfectionist and underachiever. I don't write all that consistently, but I take my time on the things I do put out there. Too much time in most cases, to be honest. I can pretty much guarantee I won't be posting frequently (it took me three months just to get around to signing up and a full year to post something), but I have had a few story ideas that I could post here when (and if) I write them. When (and if) my schedule finally decides I can have time to myself again long enough to crank out a brief story or two and I'm not too exhausted to write what I'd like to write, I'll be sure to put something up, assuming it's any good. But I won't hold my breath.

On a more optimistic note, my best friend and I are "working" (what a scary word) on a collaborative story about a new vision of the zombie apocalypse, which will take quite some time but hopefully will be worth it. We are hammering out the early chapters and finalizing some key details, and should be posting them as we work through them. Now that it's officially up and running, hopefully I can get myself to work on it more consistently.

A few basic things about me: I am a Star Wars fanboy. A bigger fan of the galaxy far, far away I have never met, although I don't deny that he or she is probably out there somewhere. My best friend and I are both huge fans of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, but we specialize, me more in Star Wars and him more in LotR (which is ironic, because he's the one with the profile name "starwarsfreak117"...). According to him, my style and subject matter tend to be rather depressing, so be prepared for that. Serious and consistent grammatical mistakes irritate me to no end, so I intend to avoid works by authors that can't spell or structure sentences properly. I play PS3 when I have the time (which, sadly, I don't have very often nowadays), I love theater, especially acting (I've been a part of a group called B.A.D., a small acting troupe, for about three years now), and I live on chips and taco sauce.

That's pretty much me in a nutshell. Regardless of whether or not you like my writing, I apologize, either because it's no good or because there's not enough of it. And if you've made it this far, I also apologize that there's no climactic ending waiting for you at the end of this description. Just me rambling on about there being no climactic ending or anything of the sort. Spoiler alert: It ends with me getting bored, saving my profile as it is, and walking away from the computer. And if you find that interesting and you're eagerly awaiting a sequel, there's something seriously wrong with you.
