About Me

For those of you visiting me for the first time, my name is David Stienmetz. I'm 25 years old, and a six year Army veteran. Since getting out, I've started college, bought a house, had a bad relationship, and done many interesting 'civillian' things. I'm currently working on what will be the first in perhaps a series of novels, depending upon the reception my work recieves.
I don't consider myself to be a master of any craft, but hope one day to have "mastered" my own particular style of writing. My hope is that with the help of brilliant professors, brilliant friends, and many brilliant people on this website, I will eventually become a published author.

As Stephen King has said, "Life is not a support system for writing. It's the other way around."

That's good to hear, considering that it could have been much worse.

Secondary Education? So what does that do, allow you to teach middle school and below? And as an English background and strong writing skills, I would think that the teaching avenue is honorable. I sort of thought about teaching, and I am sure I would be good at it (I would have to learn a few things, like communication.. and I am sure you can name other ones). Um, where was I here, Plateville's a good school. It's quite big-you'll find writing friends there eventually, as will I in Stevens Point. My major is English with a minor in Technical Writing.

I am sorry about your corrupted computer hard-drive. That really sucks.

Research company out of madison? For what purpose?

Um, work is stressing me, but that's only one job. I should be getting a second job. I hate that idea--the idea of taking more hours that I can develop whatever just to grow tired. I am most unpleasant with little sleep....
Where was I....
I had been writing almost every day since the last week. Dreams. General topics. Whatever comes to mind. It seems to be getting easier, actually. And I got a bunch of e-books onto my computer for me to read--I'm surprised how much I actually downloaded. I have like over 1,000 e-books. It's very nice.

I'll be in UW-Stevens Point in the fall. As far as I know, I have classes only on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This was surprising to me because I planned on having classes every day instead of just three days.

I hope I can research or do library work for work study--I don't want to cook....................................

Thanks, man. The story you just referenced, the one about the strange town with the asylum, and that big black dude who saves those guys from having their asses kicked, is certainly one of my favorites. I got to be as strange as I wanted to be writing that story. No boundaries on what I could or wanted to say or do with it. I wonder how many of your stories could be tied together as well. I think about that fairly often. My short story collection, Power: That Ultimate Feeling, actually is in the process of having damn near each story in it reference another or two. Specific characters, locations, and clich� expressions are making the jumps from story to story. I find the idea of a connection of different bits in different time periods, different settings, and different universes altogether VERY interesting. You'll see what I mean in a few months, when I suspect the book'll be done. I just need to get off my lazy a*s and actually finished editing and stringing it together. It's gonna be a real patchwork quilt.
As for fixes, yes, we all certainly have things that we're trying to chase out or cut down on. That's one thing that makes us writers. A constant reach for evolution and growth. At least, that's what I think. The classes at the university are helping, huh? That's excellent news, bro. I'm glad to know yer getting something of true value out of the experience in school. So many of us breeze through without learning anything that has a practical use elsewhere. I also have a hard time deciding where to put time breaks. LOL. That's why my s**t sometimes flows like a clogged S-bend. One minute things are going fairly smooth...the next; s**t is backed up and abrupt. Trying to fix that personal weakness. "Afterall, readers don't need to know that Kane went to the bathroom." Lol.
