Author’s Bio – I Got Something

New bio

I am fiction writer who leans towards fantasy and horror, but who knows what my inclinations will lead me down the road. I’m not an emotional man and I’ve not lived a dramatic life which I can flow into my writing, but I’m a passionately imaginative man who sees beauty in everyday life and spends too much time in my own head.

Instead, I enjoy creating mystery, fantastical worlds and create questions of philosophy. Hopefully, this makes up for my shortcomings in life experience.

My first thought that ever comes to mind when writing a new story is not characters or where the story will lead, but what interesting scenery and life questions can I create from it; In short, my writing is about putting people in situations and let their character grow from there.

I wouldn’t say that I’m a particularly skilled writer, but I’m a polymath, and, if anything else, you’ll (hopefully) take with you something interesting from my stories.

Authors Bio – I Got a Little Bit

(Sorry, this is just for archive purposes, I’m changing my bio, yet again!)

Christopher is a fiction novelist who writes in the fantasy, sci-fi and horror genre.

Writing is not something that comes naturally, I can attest to that. If writing is your destiny – your talent – then why must you make a conscious decision to do so?

Writing isn’t easy, and at a young age, we seek what is easy, thus we don’t write.

But as long as you do things in life because you find them interesting, you will sooner or later stumble upon what you were meant to do. It might take longer than others, to find your passion. You may have written all your life, you may have started writing in your adult years or even elder years. You may regret not starting earlier and cursed your youth spent unproductive.

Nobody can say with utmost certain that your timing was right, but we can sure believe it was. It is healthier to do so, to have faith in oneself and believe in your pasts actions because it is the only certainty that we have – what happened in the past. The future is always uncertain and I can only be glad that I’ve spent the time that I did on writing. Two years is not a long time and I’m very much still a novice. I don’t know what I should be doing in the future, expect the very act of telling stories in one form or another. Hence, I write poetry and flash fiction; working novel sized fantasy and sci-fi short stories; I blog and I write fan fictions. I’ve also recently picked up drawing and I’m considering translation to earn my upkeep – substitute teaching being my only source of income at the moment.

It’s clear that I haven’t found my foundation yet, spreading my wings wherever I can reach. Trying everything and anything in the hopes that it might work out. It’s not a bad strategy, to be honest, not when you have no idea what you’re doing.

Should I focus solely on my trilogy “Book of Legacy” or should I build a reputation first with shorter works? I don’t know. What is clear, however, is that I have stories to tell and opinions to share. One of these days I’ll get something out there and it will no doubt be pretty bad. But, it’s true as they say, you got to dare to write badly before you can write well in the future.

Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by and I hope my writing will entice you to stay!

Author’s Bio… I Got Nothing.

What do you write in a bio when you have no accomplishments? 

Christopher is a fiction novelist who writes in the fantasy, sci-fi and horror genre.

Like anyone who tries to better themselves, you often create expectations that you can never live up to. But one of these days, the author has to overcome these feelings of inadequacy and publish one of his many unfinished stories.

The short story/novelette/novel “Colony Sane” will be his moment of truth, for the iterations of his story has been many. Once a short story, now a novelette, and (maybe) in the future, a novel. Reworked and edited until the original idea almost bare no resemblance to the new.

When this story is done, work on the “Book of Legacy” series will resume and the great magnum opus of the author will be presented to the world.

If you want to know more, the Book of Legacy series is heavily inspired by Lord of the Rings Trilogy in terms of a group of people journeying through the land to end all evil. But instead of sticking to this fantasy trope, the main character has to question if the world is in danger at all. In doing so, he has to question the purpose of his journey and ask why he braves the world’s many dangers and risks the lives of his friends, if not, for no other reason, than to satisfy his own curiosity.
