"I write the stories I want to read."
That quote, correctly, or incorrectly, attributed to Whedon made a profound impact on me. I had developed a favorite daydream over the past 20 years. The world of The Seraphim Chronicles (though at the time it hadn't been called that yet) became my personal escape to watch my imaginary friends live out their lives. I could dream up their technology, their architecture, and to the skill of a fashion-challenged nerd, even dream up their fashion styles.
But, the world of TSC wasn't my only daydream escape. I've often penned synopses of daydreams that I thought would make great stories, if even just for myself. It's been an incredible journey trying to enter the world of authors (all of whom I deem more talented than I). My dream, ultimately, is to create a series I am proud of and then move onto to a series of short stories that I've made notes on over the years.
For now, I'll attend to my career in architecture, take care of my family, express gratitude to God for the abundant blessings in my life and hope for the continuation of a blessed life mingled with the normal wear and tear of daily life.
