I'm new here to the forum (or any forum for that matter) and looking forward to becomming active in the Cult!
HI Everyone! Im obviously new to this site and have never really participated in any other forum like this but I am extemely looking forward to it. Except Im just not really sure how Im supposed to start actively participating it in.
I Graduated Upper St. Clair High school in 1998. Enlisted active duty in the US Marine Corps and left after 2 years. Then attended a few years of college at Marywood University in Scranton PA, and then at St. Petersburg College in Tampa Bay Florida. Majored in Psychology, realized it was worthless, so I quit and still havent finsihed college, but plan to return to school next year and complete a degree in Communications and English Writing at a 4 year university. For the past 6 years I've been doing nothing really but waiting tables and bartending, and have recently had a few brushes with the law. Yes I have a criminal record,not proud of it, but at least it doesnt pertain to anything along the lines of murder, rape, or anything involving minors.
Didnt get into Chuck until after watching Fight Club. Yes I know, because of this Im probably looked at as impure or unauthentic somehow, since it took a movie to get me to open a book. But since then Ive read and loved all of Chucks books. Havent gotten to his last 3 yet but want to ASAP.
I love Chucks writing style. He doesnt write how other people write or how other people even talk. But his style and words would poortrays a person would think, which makes it eeasy and enjoyable for me to get into.
His books have inspired me to become a writer of non-fiction and fiction alike. And although Im content with the fact that I will nevercome close to the genius of Chuck, his style has and will continue to have a very powerful and positive influence on my writing.
Looking forward to being a member on this great site/forum. Thanks and hope to meet alot of you soon! Like said if anyone can give me any advice on how to start becomming an active participate in this, please drop me a line and let me know. Thanks!
