So here’s the thing. I have a friend who writes. I’ve mentioned him before, but now I feel the need to do a super promo. He is technically on WordPress, but he hasn’t posted in months. But here’s some things about him.
His name is David Brennan. He didn’t start writing until a few months ago. The most experience he had with world-building beforehand was some roleplaying we did back in the day. But now he has decided to go big or go home, and is working on a novel. A NOVEL. Who on earth decides their first venture into writing must be a novel? Brennan, apparently.
Anyway, he in his very first adventure in writing, is one of the best people starting out that I have ever seen. He made a story that I seriously enjoyed reading just by the first chapter of the book. He still has some grammar issues to work out, but it can be overlooked. After all, he’s trying to be a storyteller, not a linguist. And, you know, it’s the first draft.
He is an excellent battle writer so far. This may be due to a lot of anime watching. He seems to write PTSD super well. I don’t know why this is really but I can’t say it’s a bad thing.
In conclusion, although he doesn’t have his own social network thing yet… watch for this name. And watch for the book “Blood Diamond”. That is its current title.
