John in a few words

I enjoy writing, translating a simple idea or a world-changing epiphany into words forming sparks of neural inspiration in the reader's mind to set up a whole chain of events which will ever-so-slightly change the course of history for all of our descendants.

The power of ideas is immense. Ideas are the essence of the cosmos, and we have the gift of writing through which to pass our ideas on for generational impact.

I'm not a professional writer (yet) but I write for both fun and function. I have joined this platform to practice and hone my writing abilities in venues that I'd not be exposed to in my day-to-day life to challenge myself to become a more versatile and expressive writer.
