My self-summary
I'm a rather weird person. I'm a writer and dreamer. I like to walk and think on things. I'm not terribly complex a person, as I tend to be rather open about my mental processes.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an hourly supervisor at work, but that's bill money. What I'm doing with my life is writing as much and often as I can. I'm not shooting for being a commercial hit, but I do want to write well enough, and a large enough body of work, that I can live off of it. Someday, maybe, I'll be a big name author, but all I'm really shooting for at the moment is hack novelist that makes $30,000 to $50,000 a year in royalties.
I’m really good at
Most people tend to think that I have a highly analytical mind, so I suppose that's something.
The first things people usually notice about me
No one has really commented on me for a while. For the most part, I would probably have to say my odd fashion sense (button down and clean cut) and professional demeanor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books would have to be the Dark Tower series, written be Stephen King, one of the greatest American commercial novelists, though I'm willing to read just about anything. Some topics and genres I like to read about: technology, religion, mortality, morality, fantasy, science fiction, factoids, historical fiction, horror, biographies, history, speculative fiction, politics, reference, and technical manuals.

My favorite movies would have to be In the Mouth of Madness, Event Horizon, and Dark City. Horror as a genre is somewhat what I grew up with, but I'm not terribly picky when it comes to entertainment. I also have a fondness for low budget pictures. Just seeing what creative people can do on a dime is actually really cool to me. And I like to see more raw acting than what you usually get in big budget flicks.

For shows, it's a matter of mood more than anything. Documentary shows, paranormal shows, police procedural, I'll watch about anything other than reality television and sports. To be completely frank, though, my single favorite show is Doctor Who, followed closely by Farscape. Joss Whedon's stuff I like, but I feel dirty about liking it. Not that it's bad necessarily, but that the plots are generally weak because the characters are so strong.

My favorite music is a lot harder to pinpoint as I generally listen to anything. I'm not big on rap, country, or hip hop, however. I like some of it, but most of it seems really pointedly not for me.

My favorite foods? I don't know about that. I like olives. Strawberries. Crackers. I've curbed my eating for a couple of months, in addition to exercising, to work on getting down to a healthy weight.
Six things I could never do without
I'm never far from my laptop or my phone. The laptop because that's where I write. My phone because I don't actually know. I don't really call people and people don't really call me, I'm not into social media beyond trying to use it to promote my book, and I generally don't get emails.

I carry my lighter on me at all times, as well as my Leatherman. The lighter is because I'm a smoker. Trying to quit, but I've not been able to kick the habit just yet. The Leatherman because it is really handy to have. You never know when you are going to need a screwdriver, a knife, a bottle opener, a pair of scissors, a wrench, pliers, or a file.

Other than that, mostly it's just the ideas that I need and a goal before me. I run on ideas, writing anything that strikes me. And I have to have a goal at all times. I would go crazy with absolutely nothing to work toward.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of my time thinking about my writing. It's about the most important thing that I have at the moment. Other than that, it's work. I do spend a fair amount of time worry about what sort of legacy I'll leave when I'm gone.

And, of course, I think more than I want to about the prospects of dying. I cannot understate the fear I have of death. Ever since I was eleven, my own mortality has kept me up at night until I'm finally able to brush it off enough to get some sleep.
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night, I'm usually writing or outlining. Always some idea or another to express. Friday is just another day to me. Actually, it's the first day of my workweek, so I never have plans for the evenings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The most private thing I'm willing to admit? Nothing. I'm more reactive than proactive. If I'm asked, I'll pretty much answer anything, though.
You should message me if
If what you've read isn't frightening, send me a message. I'm not adverse to the prospect of making friends. Please use proper spelling and grammar, though. I will not respond if I can't understand your message. I don't have the time or inclination to read that sort of thing, and you really have no excuses at this point. The computer and browser will, for the most part, point out all of the faults.

Also, message me if you notice any errors in my profile. I would like to correct them.
