It's great to see a comprehensive site that offers artists the chance to garner support, and not just recognition. I feel that this site is an excellent opportunity for this community to grow and channel its support into further diversifying and adding to our already immense collection of art.
I have long been an amateur writer, pecking out stories here and there. There has even been the occasional typefucking... okay, in my heyday, it was bordering on addiction. But that all brings me here today. Having talked to and learned from some great professors, friends, writers, and roleplayers, I am venturing forth and beginning my career here on InkBunny.
I am channeling my energy into my first effort to shake off the dust and pick up my craft once more. "Sophomore Year" is a ten chapter story about three college students - two guys and a girl - who unwittingly find themselves in a triad relationship. The story explores their collective and individual arcs, self discoveries, and growth as seasons and semesters pass.
The story will be told from the perspective of its three characters, each lending their voice to different points of different chapters in the story. I aim to create character-driven fiction, filled with characters who possess more depth than they may realize through their own perspective.
I chose sophomore year because of the duality of the term "sophomore", which literally translates to "wise fool". Each of these characters will realize that their meager education and real world experience can only guide them so far. It is up to them to recognize the intertwined possibility and pitfalls they will face throughout this journey, and to decide whether they are ready to accept the peril that accompanies their passion.
Thank you all, and please vocalize your support as I continue to publish each chapter. If this takes off I am happy to spend much more time as a more "professional" writer.
