I have been writing/designing my mythological world for many years. I have not devoted so much of my time to my story for a while, which is partly why I joined NaNo. My writing is often fueled by music, mythology (including Tolkien's) and philosophy. I am totally in love with the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, two of my greatest inspirations. I often draw/paint many of the characters in my story. I am a proud Roman Catholic, and I am highly considering the priesthood.
