This is wolfsamurai's writing journal. Unlike my regular journal, it's open to the public in the interest of getting commentary from people. Critiques and suggestions on how I can improve my work is more than welcome and if you enjoy what I write, that is happily accepted as well of course. I only ask that if you like my writing that you comment and tell me ~what~ you like about it, so I can continue to grow and improve as a writer.
I try and update fairly often, but creativity isn't something necessarily easy to manage on a schedule. Currently I have two stories being posted, with a third also being worked on.
Kael - Fantasy, with a healthy Wild West influence. Samurai's Heart - Samurai action meets fantasy (both western and Japanese) with supernatural elements. Project: Black Dawn - Military sci-fi, mostly mecha oriented.
My major influences for my writing are many, but I will list a few.
Writers: David Eddings, JRR Tolkein, John Ringo, Terry Brooks, Mercedes Lackey, Stephen King, Paul Kidd, William Gibson, Timothy Zahn, Alexander Dumas, HP Lovecraft, Robert Jordan, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and others. Movies: Star Wars, Army of Darkness, Aliens, Princess Bride, Braveheart, The Crow, The Good The Bad and the Ugly, Highlander, Six-String Samurai, hong kong action movies, Bruce Lee movies, and more. Anime/Manga: Rurouni Kenshin, Slayers, Ghost in the Shell, Gundam, Macross, Inu Yasha, Magic Knight Rayearth, Bubblegum Crisis, Escaflowne, Five Star Stories, and lots more.
