Hello to everyone at FW.com! I am The Goliath Assassin, and I exist where Christ and heavy metal meet! My previous secular metal interests were too numerous to list here, but many have already been forgotten.
Now that I am saved, I stick to what I know is right with the Lord. Bands like P.O.D., Killswitch Engage, Disciple, etc. Of course, I am always looking for more Christian metal artists to rock out to! I also like plain old alternative, like Switchfoot and Kutless. (Sometimes calmer music can be fun.)
I've been writing poetry as long as I can remember, and I've been a serious songwriter since 2003. I've come to FW.com because I heard it was a vibrant community. I had no idea there existed such an awesome forum for exposure to the professional writing biz!
My only hope is that somewhere in-between all the fiction and non-fiction opportunities, there is somebody out there looking for a Christian metal writer and/or lyricist! HELLO?
I am confident in my writing, singing, and performing abilities, and would LOVE to put my lyrics to music and go on tour! I've had no formal training with any instruments, nor can I fully self-produce. But I know a thing or two about music software, I will-I WILL be able to self-produce! Also, I was in choir for several years throughout middle school and high school, including one year of Select Ensemble, an audition-only group. I also enjoyed being thrust upon several roles in the high school Show Choir, for "lack of guys."
But really, I give the credit for any and all of my achievements to God, without whom I could never have had the courage to perform or been humbled to learn all that I have learned. I am nothing but a sinner saved by grace, and therefore, I want with all my heart to bring His word to a truely hard-core audience. One that might not otherwise have a great deal of exposure to His message of salvation through grace.
Also, I'm building a clique of writers on this site in my local area. Check out my brother in Christ! He's TheSpiderKing.
