Introductions & Welcomes / Hello Everyone!
« on: December 16, 2015, 06:12:56 am »
Hello everyone,

I'm new here. I just wanted to say hi to everyone. I'm trying to get used to the forums and I've been lurking for a bit. I'd like to get more active and involved with conversations and hopefully make some new friends.

A little about myself. I used to be an avid reader in high school and my late teen years but that has been over 6 years ago. I think I've finished only a few books since then. It's always been my dream to write novels and other sorts of fiction but life got in the way. I've also spent entirely too much time playing video games and partying. I think I am finally at a point in my life where I want to "grow up" as painful as that is for me to admit. I want to do more with my life.

So here I am starting fresh. I feel like I have done myself a great disservice by depriving my mind of books and writing. I feel like my mind has actually went downhill slightly. My reading speed is slower but I've never been an incredibly fast reader. My spelling seems affected by auto-correct too. That bothers me.

I seem to go through phase after phase of wanting to do this or do that and nothing has really stuck. I guess I have commitment issues and a lack of patience but I seriously want to commit to writing and start reading again. I am trying to write everyday, even if it's just for a minute. I am working on a zombie novel to get into the swing of things. Sitting at 8000 words at the moment. I've been reading some other zombie authors on Kindle as well. Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout series is fantastic and I can't help but feel like it puts my writing to shame. I am discouraged easily but I am trying to stay positive and motivated in order to hone my craft.

Thanks for reading. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone here.

- Aaron
