First Post

So yeah looks like it's time for me to start a blog. I haven't really done this before so any of you reading this, don't get your hopes up.

Little background on myself.

My name is Carter. I'm 20. Writing has only recently become a major passion for me, so I figured I'd try out this blogging thing to see if any of you real writers out there had pointers or thought what I had to say was interesting.

My life is extremely busy and is not exactly conducive to being able to write a book. Be that as it may, that is what I'm currently working on. If you stick with my blog, I may start putting background info or excerpts up to see what you guys think of it.

I have a really odd sense of humor and I can't promise you won't be offended by what i write. Of course, I can't promise you will be offended either, so don't start putting words in my mouth.

I'll try to update at least once a week. the topics may differ or be completely random. Basically whatever I'm thinking, you'll get to hear about. Kind of like filling a blank slate with my musings (see what I did there?). I may be thinking food one week, and PS2 games another week. I'll try to get back to my writing as often as possible, but I never know when I'll be feeling the muse. So keep checking back to find out. Or don't. Whatever.


  1. Finally! Another young dude who likes writing and games. I've been searching forever. Amen brotha! AMEN!

    From this post alone I can see you are skilled with words. I like your voice and the fact that you are just as wild about video games as I am.

    So, in light of this budding friendship, which I hope will grow (mainly so we can kill each other in Mortal Kombat someday), my name is Tyson McFrost: writer, gamer, journalist, kick ass dude and the world's most powerful Alterhero.

    Bow to me! :D

  2. While I shall bow, it is only in deference to your alterhero...itude. However for an all inclusive bow we must meet in Kombat.
    But seriously, I started this blog to meet people who liked writing like me. You are obviously far more skilled in your craft than I, and I look forward to finding out just how much you know. From your blog, I can tell you've spent a lot of time not only writing, but considering the many various aspects of writing and for that, I shall once again bow.

    High-five to us both being kick-ass dudes!

  3. Thanks so much!

    By the way, what are some of the games you play now?

    I'm currently obsessed with League of Legends.

    It's an MMO with a dash of RPG mixed in. Plus you get to kill people. That's always fun, right? :D

  4. Well I just recently re-acquired a PS2 so I've been buying up as many RPG's, racing games, and fighting games as I can. Right now I'm working back through Final Fantasy 10 and 12, Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 and Dark Cloud. MMO's tend to frustrate me more because I'm a cheap bastard than any really good reason.
    I lived with a roommate who had Halo 3 for a while and I got damn dirty at that, but sadly no 360, no Halo. I'll try out pretty much any game.

    Also I have a gameboy emulator and am absolutely wrecking pokemon right now
