Hi! I'm CB Ash - also known as Kummer Wolfe. To be fair, I spend my days going in several directions at once from software architect, inventor, and UX designer to science fiction and fantasy writer, Game Master, and worldbuilder on World Anvil! In short, I'm a creative storyteller! As you might guess, the day job is the long-time software architect / ux designer/inventor part. The rest is the 'night job'. Aside from that, I'm working on a few stories and RPG settings, one of which is in my world 'Summerdark', another in Tales of Justice, Hoist the Colors, and some serial fiction in Windtracer! (and quite a few more!) Beyond that, I'm either working on one of my github projects or web component architecture. ... and I wouldn't turn down a coffee: https://ko-fi.com/cbash ... and feel free to stop by my Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/cb_ash)! And some words of wisdom that I re-read from time to time...
What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
The main rule of writing is that if you do it with enough assurance and confidence, you’re allowed to do whatever you like. (That may be a rule for life as well as for writing. But it’s definitely true for writing.)
So write your story as it needs to be written. Write it honestly, and tell it as best you can. I’m not sure that there are any other rules. Not ones that matter.
