SwirlingJedi: Profile

I am currently writing four different stories, rotating between them as I go. Two of these stories, were only on my Patreon page, but I have decided to open them up to an extent. For those of you who really like my stories and want early access and in some cases, exclusive access, please stop by my Patreon page and support me if you like. Patreon is also where I post my updated and improved master copies of each chapter that I write. I also have a Twitter feed and will be posting any and all updates about my stories and progress there from here on out.

I am an aspiring writer, who only recently, has rediscovered his passion for creating stories. Ever since I was a kid, I've always been drawn to the fictional worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien, George Lucas(Star Wars), Frank Herbert and yes, Gene Roddenberry(Star Trek) as well! There was always such adventure and mystery to them, which drew me in every time I picked up a book or saw an episode. I hoped to one day, be able to create such wondrous tales and immersive and immense universes and well, here I am.

I've always had a hyperactive imagination as a kid, as I could always envision vast worlds and stories that often tumbled about in my head. Though, growing up, I couldn't always articulate these ideas that I had or was ridiculed for them. Eventually, I grew up, shelved these ideas and got into how things were in the real world. Got into an industry that was fun at first, but now, I realize that it was a mistake and that I should have been chasing what I wanted much sooner.

Interestingly enough, I was actually inspired by a fellow writer, to start creating these ideas. You see, I had crafted an idea for him to use in his story, which I have been following since his first chapter. After a few emails back and forth, he told me this; To take what I had initially offered to him and make it into my own story. He stated that he would be excited to see what I could create with what I had made. Since that day, I have been diligently writing down every idea that pops into my head and finally, making these universes that reside within my mind, into reality.

It was when I started doing this, that I realized, that this is what I want to do with my life, that being a writer was what I was truly meant to do. Though I wish that I could write more often, I am a working man with bills to pay, who is also a husband and a father. This is why I hope to realize my dream and become a writer full time!

I pour much of myself into what I write(and a few personal experiences), that it feels as though I am actually living these adventures. To feel that, with every chapter of every story that I create, is beyond amazing. I can only hope that anyone who reads them, will somehow feel the same way.
