Male with Autism.
I began drawing and writing at the age of 12, starting with "A Story Less Told" at that time, which has be re-written at least 5 times since then, as i progressed from a novice kid without a clue, to whatever i am considered in the present day. What started as just self-entertainment grew into a coping mechanism as i created small fictional worlds of my own to take small breaks from the real world around me, then became an obsession and eventually a lifestyle. I have struggled with depression and a emotional alienation, never feeling i fit in given that my Autism diagnosis wasn't even discovered until i was an adult. Fiction and comedy was always the best medicine available.
At some point i felt the need to contribute back to the world, and the only ability i seemed to have of any functional uniqueness, was my writing. The theory was that if i created entertainment, i could help others escape the droll and depressing repetition of daily life, especially in the form of comedy that i later embraced full time. The world can never have too much potential escapism or moments of laughter, and stories last forever as long as someone has a copy to read, or the inspiration to create their own. Life may be fleeting and temporary, filled with hopeless moments and predictability, but fiction is whatever you make of it, and i hope to entertain and inspire someone write their own stories.
the beauty of writing , is that there are no rules or limits, and even if a hundred people hate it, as long as one person benefits, it's something that makes a difference, and they can share it further. the only way to fail at it, is to never try, or somehow write a story that literally nobody on earth ever enjoyed, and i've already surpassed that mark by about 4 people before even publishing. anything beyond that is just bonus points.
i also do my own illustrations and editing, hence the spelling errors, sorry for that folks.
