This is a thread to talk about writing of any kind -- be it the writing that goes on for this site, elsewhere, down to personal writing.
A little bit about my writing myself...
I started writing shitty horror movie scripts when I was 12 and it's gone from there. I went to Carver A&T for writing where I learned A LOT OF POETRY but also fiction, non-fiction/journalism and even some screenwriting. I went to University of Baltimore and majored in professional writing. During college I interned at the City Paper and worked there after college for a year. In 2004 I started working for a direct mail fundraising agency where I am a copywriter. It's technical for the most part but it does allow you to be creative which is fun.
I've written for The Gorilla, a magazine in Frederick. Some of my articles can be found here (the magazine archive:
But my real writing love is fiction. I've written dozens of short stories and longer, more novel-like ones. None of them have ever been published, I mainly do it for myself, however I have begun to think about self-publishing a trilogy of stories that I've written in the last 2 years. my writing style is similar to George Pelacanos/Richard Price. Major influence is The Wire -- somewhat stripped down, street-smart prose.
