I'm a world builder. I can't say I come up with original stories or unique ideas, but my passion is creation. I have delved deep into generating a world all my own. Too bad I can't live there.

I love reading and sharing and bouncing ideas around, though I have an issue with the deviantart culture. Not all of you. In fact, most of you are amazing, fantastic people. But one bad apple spoils the bunch and I'm not one to be very... hrm... tolerant?

Current Residence: home
Favourite genre of music: Swing
Favourite style of art: *shrug* Whatever looks good and catches my eye.
Operating System: The one with the fastest internet?
MP3 player of choice: Ipod? Just cuz I have one?
Favourite cartoon character: LSP
Personal Quote: "Because we can!"

And by the way, I'm a dude.
Interests
I have created a universe with 8 fully developed planets, 62 partly-developed planets, 19 systems of government, 6 galaxies, 44 types of flora, 18 animals, 17 species, a system of magic that marries to physics, and over 50 characters. It's huge. I have also created the timeline from 2000 years before the universe was created all the way up to 13,000 years (of actual plot, not just physics doing its thing) later where BOOK ONE starts. I've created enough material so that I could live the next 30 years of my life writing a new book each year in that universe and still have some stuff left over. But here's the kicker:

I hate writing.

It's boring, painful, and my ADD seems to overwhelm me when I decide to sit down and actually do it. I believe I have enough talent to write something that might pass as bathroom reading material, or a book you find stuffed in a box rather than standing on shelf, but I have no willpower to write it. Why?

Writing is hard.

I was not born to write. I was born to create. Unfortunately, what I create is stories and plots and characters and worlds and all that fun stuff.  In fact, right now, I am bored and thinking about how much food I could buy with my pathetically small paycheck instead of writing my book.

Also, intros are the worst things in the world. You have to completely set the mood and scene, not to mention all the details you have to cram in so the reader isn't lost, all while trying to keep the reader hooked and guess what! You have to do it all one less than one page. Double-spaced. It is a pain in the butt and I hate it more than anything else in the whole world.

Except Math.

"Favoriting… Watching… Commenting… Dailies... Long ago, everyone posted peacefully on DeviantArt. Then, everything changed when Avatar: The Last Air Bender was shown. Only the Deviants, masters of art in all its forms, could improve it, but when the show ended, they vanished. A couple of years passed and the world was shown the new show, Avatar: The Legend of Korra. And although the show rekindled the Deviants creativity, it was only fan art. But I believe Avield can explain the whole world…"

Thanks for the favorite and be sure to watch for more!

It is nice, but I guess I just use it more sparingly than some...
