Software developer by day; writer, father, cat and dog person and everything else by night.
Sometimes I wear a mask and fight crime using only the power of my imagination.
I just finished writing a story called Mindbender, which is awesome, and you should read it: www.inkitt.com/stories/41310
It won 1st Place out of about 300 submissions on Inkitt's NaNoWriMo contest, too!
I also wrote a book as a blog at www.iorneste.com
It's still a first draft, but I am told it is really good, anyway. You can go read it and prove them wrong and tell them it's horrible if you want. I dare you. Or just tell me, since I need to edit the accursed behemoth that is now sprawling past 700 pages.
What is it?
It's a fantasy story that's written more as a character drama in a fantasy setting. It's a bit experimental, and was written unplotted. There is no outline. I had a whole set of rules on it that I made for myself, including a "1 chapter a week" deadline. You can check those out at www.iorneste.com/how-this-work…
if you're curious.
I liken it to speedpainting. I get to clean it up later.
Want a summary?
It's a dragon story about a dragon who spends the entire novel bound into human form, as part of the rite of passage among his people, the great wyrms, who call themselves the Drac. The rite of passage is called The First Exile.
I encourage you to read it, for free. It's a labor of love where I'm just writing a chapter each week, giving it away, and sharing the art I commissioned in the process to go along with the chapter. Come for the art, stay for the writing!
