I am an aspiring novelist and writer.I maintain a blog of my writings at http://gabestellataleemporium.blogspot.ca/ and have contributed works to http://www.fanfiction.net/ under the pen name gabriel.janas. I have also contributed works to http://storymash.com/ under the user lions_heart24.
I have been looking to expand my Author's Platform by publishing in various writing sites and have, what I define, as my first personal success with two fan-fiction stories on Fanfiction.net that received 6578 and 5144 views each to date. The titles of the work is Bloodlust: An Arrow Fanfiction and Smoaked Out: The Secrect Diary of Felicity Smoak. Both stories are based of off DC Comics characters in The Green Arrow which is currently running as a live action television show called Arrow. All rights to the characters and locations are the property of DC Comics and The CW and are not used for monetary profit by me in any way.
I enjoy reading, writing, weight lifting, and smoking hookah.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I don't remember the first story I ever wrote, but I do remember the first memorable story I ever wrote. The story was for a grade 7 English assignment that was suppose to be 2 pages long. The story ended up being 10-12 pages. It was called The Case of the Haunted Viper. The teacher found it so good that she gave me 100 % and then made me stand up and read it to the class. That was probably one of the most embarrassing things I ever had to do around that age.
What is your writing process?
My writing process is wacky, or normal depending on how you see it. It consists of a whole lot of pacing and staring at nothing. I usually move on to doing something else when the ideas aren't flowing. When they do come I try to write down a coherent step by step outline in bullet points to get it all out. Once it comes down to writing the actual dialogue of the story I either stay on the path I outlined for myself or get hit with another flash of inspiration that alters the course of my tale. If that flash happens then it is back to the pacing and the outline until the need to get the story out of my system becomes so strong that I have to sit down and write, even if it requires me to go without sleep.
Manhood is not what it once was. From the time of the Industrial Revolution to the economic recession of recent years the role and understanding of masculinity and manhood has been scrutinized and changed as men struggle to find their place in an ever-evolving world. Subjects like love, life and death,relationships and loneliness are explored through poetry and stories.
