I was born and raised to be a southern gentleman. I say “yes sir” and “no ma’am” and can pretty much get along with anyone. I like my movies and stories darker than I like my coffee. I have currently spent 32 years in this world and will make it 33 this November 29. Most of which has been a mixture of good moments and bad. I have been the product of bullying, verbal abuse, have witnessed some of the most evil people in the world, and even experienced a few paranormal events. All of these things I hope bleed through in every story I write and give every reader a sense of those experiences. I like to think my stories all have a part of me in them, which makes each one special in their own way.
I am not formally trained in any means of production. I have never had a writing class or been instructed passed your typical high school education but writing has always been a passion for me. When I was younger I kept journals of my thoughts and feelings, sometimes those thoughts became attempts at poetry or short stories. I still have those journals and some of them have helped inspire stories here on the Wiki. The very first creepy story I ever wrote was in the eighth grade for a fiction writing assignment. It was about two boys who entered a haunted house and only one survived. I received an “A” with notes detailing how I could make a good fiction writer. I think that’s how this all started and I don’t see any stopping in the near future.
About five years ago I found myself listening to creepypasta narrations on YouTube. Before that point I had never even heard of creepypasta and had to do a search to see how big of a thing it was. When I noticed the large community that surrounded this genre, I was hooked. I continued to listen to narrations and spent the next few years reading stories online. I found creepypasta.com first, then a few threads on Reddit. I sadly did not come across the Wiki until last year and I have been reading all of your stories since. This past August I decided to make an account, I wasn’t sure if my stories would be well received but I decided to give it a shot with my first story, “Ink”, and since then it’s been an endless flood of ideas inspired by this place and all of you. So thank you for that.
My Favorite Stories
Ink – The story is a weird combination of entries from my journals. It shows what can happen when you allow your inner demons to grow without dealing with them.
Goodnight – Even though it’s one of my shortest stories, it’s the most real. It was inspired by an actual event from my childhood. It’s one of those times when you are sure someone is coming to get you.
Vivid – This spawned from a dream I actually experienced and I wondered how awful it would be if our nightmares came true.
If You Must Know – This story was my first attempt at something that did not have anything to do with a personal experience. I wanted something different while still keeping to what kind of writer I had seemed to become. I gave the main character some of my personal flaws and attributes, then tried to write a story of what I would do in his shoes (to an extent). It’s a story about a boy who really needs to get into a good school and will do anything to make that happen.
After the Fall – I know this is the longest story I have written on the wiki and that will keep most away from reading it but I can say with complete honesty that this story had the biggest impact. The two characters are meant to be versions of myself and my brother. I tried to put the same emotions in their interactions that I think my brother and I would have if we were plopped into a post-apocalyptic world. I wanted to show how they would survive and grow closer as they needed each other for that survival. I enjoyed them so much that I became emotionally attached to their well being.
I currently have two things I am working on, one is a follow up to After the Fall, which I would like to tell Tony’s story further. I am thinking of calling it, “On the Rise”. The other is a story involving the horrors of raising children and hoping they don’t turn into monsters, literally.
