Not one to like talking about myself too much, but I'll give it a crack here. I have actually done this before, but my profile mysteriously disappeared and the techs couldn't find it. Weird. Anyway! My name is David, Aussie born and bred, but Oregonian at heart. Lived in Oregon for five years, earned a major in History from the UO (Go Ducks) and a minor in "The more hops, the better the beer" drinking. I met my beautiful wife in college, and we are now living back in Australia, though she is an LA native and we hold future plans to move back to somewhere on the West/Best Coast. Man, that was a bore to read, right?
What I'm doing here, then. I have always loved writing, with a mind that is constantly "off with the fairies" as they say. I see the world as a completely and utterly imperfect, but all the same beautiful place, and I am always looking for ways to express my views on the world in creative prose. I took a long break from the art, between helping the family start a new business and getting married, but looking to make a habit of it again as I truly miss writing and feel a piece of me is missing whenever I am not.
Some ideas I'm looking to novel the hell out of, but I have some I would love to crack a screenplay about. Screenwriting has been a long held interest for me, but one I have yet to practice too seriously. Hoping to learn, create, network etc here and push myself to finally make this more than JUST a hobby. Current projects include some kind of horror/thriller based on my experiences with sleep paralysis, and a somewhat alternate near future story about a world in which who we love is under government control.
I look forward to some solid discussion, and I apologise in advance for any longwinded posts when under the influence of a solid double IPA.
