Me (A biography of sorts)Well I'm a writer, obviously, haha. I tend to write poetry more than prose. Which is something I'm aiming to improve upon at a later date after personal issues have been resolved and I am able to attend a writing course to brush up on techniques.
In regards to poetry, however, I always aim to write as originally as possible or at least put my own style into the fabric of the work. I'm self-taught, having only started to write back in Jul 2011 after randomly writing my first ever poem "This Is The End" on my blackberry after listening to The Doors song "The End".
My method of working is to simply write down what comes into my head. There is no pre-planning and what usually is there in my gallery is a first draft, having edited the piece as I've gone along. Mistakes do happen, for example, simple spelling errors that my eyes overlook. Please don't point them out to me, since I usually return back to amend them.
Thematically I try, as I've mentioned above, to be as original as possible and I write a myriad of themes. A lot are of a dark tinge based upon my mood while writing.
Inspiration can come from absolutely nowhere for me. I've been inspired by music, paintings, historical/mythological events and characters, nature, even cartoons such as Pokemon have inspired me to come up with something new and interesting to read.
I don't necessarily write for an audience. I merely write for myself in a way as not to feel pressurised into adhering to a specific taste. Writing is a means for me to entertain myself first and foremost.
Well, that's a little about me as a writer.Favourite Quotes“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”
-- George Orwell, 1984“Well, the final responsibility is mine. And mine alone. You see, if someone who knew the future pointed out a child to you and told you that that child would grow up totally evil to be a ruthless dictator who would destroy millions of lives, could you then kill that child?”
-- Fourth Doctor, Genesis Of The Daleks"I believe in no God, no invisible man in the sky. But there is something more powerful in each of us, a combination of our efforts, a great chain of industry that unites us. But it is only when we struggle in our own interests that the chain pulls society in the right direction. The chain is too powerful and too mysterious for any government to guide. Any man who tells you differently either has his hand in your pocket or a pistol to your neck."
-- Andrew Ryan Bioshock"Can you hear them? All these people who've lived in terror of you and your judgement. All these people whose ancestors devoted themselves, sacrificed themselves, to you. Can you hear them singing? Oh, you like to think you're a god, but you're not a god. You're just a parasite eaten out with jealously and envy and longing for the lives of others. You feed on them. On the memory of love and loss and birth and death and joy and sorrow. So...so come on, then. Take mine. Take my memories. But I hope you've got a big appetite, because I've lived a long life, and I have seen a few things. I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe, and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained. No time, no space – just me. I've walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman. I've watched universes freeze and creations burn. I have seen things you wouldn't believe. I have lost things you will never understand. And I know things. Secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken, knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze! So, come on, then! Take it! Take it all, baby! Have it! You have it all!"
