Well I suppose I should introduce myself. First off, I don’t go by my real name on the internet, so you, my readers, can call me by my blog-name: OzarkScyfyWriter, or by my personal nickname: Chewie (Yes, that is a reference to Chewbacca the Wookie from Star Wars.) I’ll answer to any of those names, and have no preference to which you use.
It’s challenging to write this because personally I’ve never cared who a writer/author was as long as they wrote wholesome, enjoyable stories that I liked. If asked, I honestly couldn’t tell you anything about most of my favorite authors save their name and what books they wrote that I liked :P)
I’ll start off with the most important thing about me; I’m a Christian, (which is a very broadly used and abused term these days) meaning that I have accepted God’s Son, Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord and yielded my life to His direction. Without my faith, and identity in Christ, I would be only another addle-brained writer wasting time and words (and the world’s got enough of those already). As a writer I desire neither acclamation nor praise for my work. Mainly because it is not my work. Any skill and talent I have is God granted and He alone is worthy of recognition, respect, glorification and praise.
Now some of the lesser important things about me. As you can probably guess from my nickname, I’m a fan of Star Wars. I have been as long as I can remember, and probably will be for the rest of my life. I’ve always enjoyed Science Fiction and second to Star Wars my favorite Series/Universe is that of Stargate and then Star Trek. Most people who know me would claim I’m a hopeless science fiction addict. Honestly, I can say that’s probably true; most of the books that I’ve picked up in the past ten years have indeed been science fiction.
In addition to my love of Science-Fiction, I enjoy… no scratch that… I love writing. Most of my day is spent typing away at one half-finished story or another. I’ve been writing since I was 13 and have no plans to stop anytime soon. My favorites genre to write is (you guessed it) Science Fiction, but I also enjoy writing Fiction, Fantasy, and Medieval Fiction.
Some more about me is that I like firearms, shooting, blogging, acting, video-games, reading, martial arts, photography, problem-solving, drawing (not that I’m very good), classical music, using big words, learning strange new facts, reading the Dictionary and Thesaurus for fun (people say I’m odd for that), and (ever important to a writer) spelling.
I’m terrified of heights, petrified of lizards, leery of horses, claustrophobic, asthmatic, constantly catching colds, and introverted unto the point that if you stuck me in a large building with people I didn’t know, I’d find a corner and hide.
I also like cats.
All-in-all I suppose you could label me with the simple description of “Crazy Writer.”
