I grew up and have lived in New Mexico all my life. I am a Christian, I was home schooled, and for basically all my life I thought that there was an illusive ‘something else’ coming, which I had to wait for. I am slowly but surely realizing that the something else is this, simply life. To put it all at once, what I mean is that I’m realizing: you take a thousand mile journey one step at a time, but you have to figure out where you’re going before you start.
Now, what am I figuring out to do with my life. Well, I realized that one of my hobbies- writing- I really found enjoyable. I love to create characters, make stories and figure out plots- especially when I discover a plot hole. I realized that I might actually like writing as a career. So, I am taking that hobby seriously and trying to find a place in the literature world for my stories.
I write science-fiction stories and time travel is my specialty. They generally take place on earth or somewhere like earth, often in a history either different from our own or else in the future. My stories are basically plot-driven, but I take care to develop my characters and settings.
The mood of my stories, I often think of myself as writing stories that delve in dark subjects but take a light look on it. I have written a few stories set at the end of the world, but with a hopeful subject. (as a side-comment, I occasionally put in some humor)
As for my writing style, I like to experiment, and I think it would probably be best to read it to tell how I write. I think it tends to be straight-forward and easy to understand (or so I hope) but not simple. I have not really seen any novels published recently that have the same sound, but at the same time I think my writing would probably fit in with the modern audience.
Target audience: anyone that likes to read science-fiction, particularly time travel. If you like Doctor Who, you’ll probably like what I write. I am interested in writing some Christian fiction, as much of my writing involves (hints or tends toward) that subject, but I don’t want to be limited to that genre.
Last but not least, I am interested in doing freelance writing, ghost writing and copywriting. Here are some subjects I’m interested in writing about:
1. health/exercise. I do not have experience as a nurse or anything of the kind, and I’ve seen a lot of job opportunities that have required such knowledge, however, I would be interested in doing research into specific subjects, such as some condition or remedy. As for exercise, that’s something I enjoy and appreciate, so I think it would make a good subject for me to write about, particularly on fitness websites or magazines.
2. writing. Sense this is the line of work I’m doing, obviously I am interested in talking about it. I can talk about anything and everything: my stories, plot development, characters, writing styles, my experience, platform, blogging, etc.
3. music. I love music and I have some experience playing a violin, guitar and piano (in order of experience) and I would be willing and interested in writing about it. I particularly enjoy music composed for movies, and I have fairly good knowledge of film composers.
4. animals. I love almost all animals, especially dogs, and I can write about them easily.
I am interested in doing research on some subject other than the ones I have mentioned here.
So, as I said, I am interested in freelance writing, and copywriting sounds like something I can do well. But writing fiction is what I like best.
And that’s what you can expect here on Felicity Prose. I’ll talk about what I’m writing and the progress I make- basically just a journal. Well, okay, it will just be a glimpse of my life, mostly to do with writing, but I hope you enjoy it.
So- I’m a writer. I create worlds and dream up adventures. And this is my day job: life, and trying to figure out where God will lead it.
