WHO IS THE WRITE NERD?

Hey, I'm Joshua Bernard. Some people call me J.L., RedmanJah on Xbox Live, dummy(if you're my wife), and Daddy. I've self-published two short stories with a writing group known as the Just-Us League on Scribophile.com, and I've decided that I would like to continue writing and publishing work for others to read. I write about whatever interests me; I've got plenty of ideas swimming around in my head and sometimes I can shape them into interesting stories. I've always created things. 

Some notable things I've created:

-A mini-utopian city made out of wood, old constructions supplies, and a pile of dirt for my Hotwheels cars when I was 7 or 8. 
-My very own handmade holiday cards for my parents every year until I realized(thought)I was too cool to hang out with my folks.
-Various interstellar spaceships, constructed out of Legos that could cover the entire galaxy in a single light-speed warp. This trend continued well into my teens. (Hey, don't judge!) 

Essentially, the need to create things is in my blood, and it has been with me all throughout my life.

I STARTED A PATREON TO...

To CREATE and follow my dreams of writing fiction content that's successful, even if it's not profitable, is of high quality, and provides excellent entertainment for all readers. To BE successful and ACCOMPLISH goals that I've always told myself I couldn't. 

That's the whole reason you'll see content from me on Patreon. It sounds so simple when you read it, and when you do, you'll understand that it says so much more. 

It's like reading between the lines. It's not just about writing content that's successful, but also writing stories that bring characters to life, as if you've known them your entire life. I want to convey feelings and spur a whole range of emotions simply from the words you've read here. 

It's always been my passion to write full-time for a living and dreams like that don't just happen--YOU MAKE THEM HAPPEN! Wait...I make them happen? No. We make them happen?

Yeah, let's go with that.

I've spent countless hours thinking about where I can present my work and how I can take the necessary steps to start this journey. So, I determined that through tons of writing practice, a loud enough stage, and generous readers (like yourselves), I can take the FIRST of many steps.

Whew...all these steps make you want to sit down. So, why don't you pull up a chair, rest your legs, and take a look around. It's my sincere hope that you find something here that you enjoy and if you enjoy it enough, I hope you'll consider donating.

If you do happen to donate (well thank you, and now I'll give you things) or I will give you things. Specifically, I'll give you stories. The stories I write will be available to Patrons in electronic form, most likely in PDF format. Unfortunately, the ability to manipulate my writing into PDFs won't be free, and that's where I hope you guys will come in. There will be varying levels of giving (for those extra generous folk), and I will work my hardest to give back equally to match those gifts.

But I want to be able to give so much more than small bytes of prose in PDF format, OH, so much more! I'm a giving fellow too, you know? If you refer to the GOALS section, you'll see where else The Write Nerd is going to go for now.

On behalf of all writers, authors, and creators turning their first page, I want to say thank you for supporting us and thank you for supporting The Write Nerd

What's the most valuable tool in your toolbox...?

Do you know what it is? Do you have a couple of favorite tools you whip out in a moments notice? My first goal will be using the generous donations to acquire some interesting writing/designing tools I've been eyeing for awhile. Mainly, I'll be looking to acquire subscriptions to Grammarly (1-year) and Adobe Creative Cloud. 

I hope that with an additional set of eyes, I'll be able to polish my writing to top-shelf quality. The Adobe Creative Cloud subscription will allow me to provide easy-to-download(ETD) and easy-to-read(ETR) content. As well as experiment with Adobe Illustrator to create the picture part of my shorties.
