A Little More About Me


Hello, world!

I thought I'd begin my life on this blog by saying a little more about myself, for anyone who cares to know. I am 21-years-old, from Laurel, MD, and am currently living in Baltimore county. I have one semester left studying for a BFA in Photography, Video & Film Arts at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. I've wanted to be a writer since age three - after reading small books and being read lots of books by my Mom - but, after taking a Photography class in High School, fell in love with Photography and pursued that when applying for college in 2009. Writing has, since then, been on the back burner for me (though I have written a few short stories, a few scripts, some poetry, and several essays throughout my college career). I've had several ideas for novels over the past several years, which I've been developing in my mind but haven't had time to write or outline or actualize in any way.

This past year I discovered the Amazon e-book publishing program, which has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me. I began to outline some of these ideas I've kept locked in my mind. One story in particular stood out to me; an idea I had been developing for almost 6 years. This idea was my baby - my favorite thing I had come up with so far - and it still is.

I am currently writing a novel titled "REAPERS", which is actually a prequel to that original idea. I hope to have it published sometime this summer. I am VERY excited about both novels; I truly believe this prequel will add new depth to that original story idea. I may not write or release the original story any time soon after REAPERS is published, though. I want it to be as perfectly written as it possibly can be. This means I must develop my skills as a writer to a higher level than they currently are. It is my baby, after all; it deserves the best.

I have also recently written a short, 17-page script titled "KNOW YOUR DEMONS", which is currently being considered for production and could be made into a short film. I'll find out next week whether or not its been accepted and, if it is, I'll be posting plenty of production photos and stories to Twitter (@inadreamscape) and this blog for people to follow.

Thank you for reading, and please stay tuned for more!

-Chris
