History of My Writing

As soon as the human race started putting things into a more permanent record, stories have been passed on. Oral tradition gave way to the written word. At first, pictographs and runes depicted the world around them, then they crafted stories to teach.

Today, in this era of the electronic world, almost anyone can get anything published on the Internet. Hopefully, what you find on this site will be of a quality you will return more than once to read the tales submitted.

My Background

Just a quick note to tell those who visit a bit about myself. Like most people who write, I had a vivid imagination as a child which actually continued on into adulthood. Within the last ten years, I've gotten serious about writing. I've joined Romance Writers of America, taken courses through Longridge Writers and my community colleges and have spent a great deal of my 'free' time authoring both non-fanfic and fiction.

As for the rest... I'm a retired U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman and currently an RN working in a step-down unit. Writing for me is a release valve. I love it passionately and hope that those who come here enjoy my entries. Feedback (not flaming) is always welcome...

Just for fun...

A GOLD Dragon Lies Beneath!

 I took the http://www.geocities.com/teo592/quiz/dragon.html Inner Dragon online quiz and found out I am a Gold Dragon on the inside. My Inner Dragon is the most honorable of all. Golds are the third rarest of all the dragons (after Platinum and Chromatic dragons) and have a station in society that reflects their rarity. I am what one might call a Draconic Knight. Golds live by a strict code of chivalry and commitment. Remember Draco? Yep, Gold Dragon. My appearance is fearsome and all-mighty but I'd never stoop so low as to bring any harm to a human. I'm one of only two dragon types that are aligned "Lawful Good" and demonstrate great magical proficiency. My piety, beauty, wisdom, and inner strength are absolutely without parallel.

Of course, being a Gold  Dragon isn't all high ethics and codes. I like to fly around scaring things, advise humans in their affairs, and shapeshift. Strike that, I LOVE to shapeshift. And I'm great at it. In fact, who's to say I'm not really a Gold Dragon after all? My favorable attributes are honor, truth, kindness, gold, wisdom, bravery, and trustworthiness. If anyone threatens or tries to kill me, I could strike back with my breath weapon - Fire. But then, no one's tried anything that stupid in the last couple thousand years. After all, I'm about 54 feet long
