Hello, I am from Eastern Europe. I go by Kendall Jackson, a pseudonym( I find it's easier for people to pronounce than my real name). I've been writing since high school which makes it... about 20 years now. Found my friends and colleagues liked what I wrote, but I never intended for that to be published, it was for fun.
As for what I write... Well I write whatever comes in my mind. I always had huge imagination but in general it goes towards fantasy, sci-fi, adventure and light novel kind of direction. As for style... I usually write more dialogue and action, I like leaving descriptions mostly to the reader, not to say I do not do descriptions but it's not my forte, as of now. I also like to write short stories as time is precious for readers these days, so I like making them more accessible, but again, it depends of the ideas I have.
Seems writing, or at least coming on with ideas is what i am best at. So, here I am. Finally made the courage to look for places that can help and...here I am.

Welcome, Kendall_Jackson! Hurrah for short stories :) You'll find lots of people here who write short stories, and who write in your preferred genres.

@Kendall_Jackson hello and welcome to AW! :hi: I'm also a SFF writer, also working in short stories (for now, to give my longer manuscript time to breathe).

coming on with ideas is what i am best at
That's fantastic! Guess writer's block'll be staying far, far away from you. ;)

Finally made the courage to look for places that can help and...here I am.
Glad to have you; this site is super helpful for growing and improving as a writer! (from personal experience) :)

thanks for the welcome....yeah writer but the problem is I am getting too many ideas and can sometimes get lost in them, which explains why it took me 15 years to finally try and publish.

I very much enjoy wine, so it's blatantly obvious I'm going to like you quite well, because I routinely have at least two bottles of Kendall-Jackson in the house at any given moment. Coincidence? I think not!

Welcome to you.

Maryn, pleased to meet you
