Hey everyone, my name is John D. Williams. With the name out of the way, here we go!

I have always kept a passion for throwing out my opinion via words to paper, or nowadays, words to keyboard. I'm in my 30's and a small government, Libertarian-minded conservative. My life consists of a great gal with a bright eyed 12 year old son, both who are very supportive, and a newborn full of spunk. I always pick up the niche to write creatively or throw together articles in regards to what is going on in the world today, that is when not busy with all of life's cunning distractions.

I feel writing to be the purest form of expression. It was always something I would fall back into, sadly on an inconsistent basis.

Nowadays however, I can sit with patience as well as focus, while putting together sentences on a regular basis. My goal is to start a conversation for those who enjoy my style, and even those who do not.

I also use this form of expression for myself. It is quite theraputic, as I'm sure many of you can relate.

By no means am I perfect and know of nobody who is, yet this outlet is my life in many ways. It truly brings me back to a time from my past, a time when I was just some random kid in school struggling with science and writing creatively for the Young Author's Progam.

With no formal training in any specific writing style, I just crave to succeed while utilizing my mind as if it were a sponge. I have been told that I have an honest and unique style. Hey, I can accept that. I'll try to soak up information with the best of them, and am always willing to learn something new along the way. Growing as a writer is no different than growing as an individual. There is always plenty of room for improvement.

I enjoy all aspects of life. I can go to a hockey game or just about any ball game, have a dog and a beer, all while cracking jokes with my family and friends. The outdoors, along with fishing, has become a hobby I truly adore as well. I too can be just as comfortable sitting home on the couch with my family watching a good film.

Film was an outlet I was heavily interested and influenced by. The writing aspect on through direction. All of it, I guess. There is no doubt that I am passionate about movies. Heck, probably annoyingly so to those around me.

I'm easy to get along with, which sums me up pretty darn well, even if we may disagree on certain topics. In closing, please enjoy my articles. Dislike them if you choose, and debate me if you like. That is part of the fun!

Have a good one...

John D.
