About Me

This is NOT me. Besides, I think that hat belongs to Lemony Snicket.

Well, my name is Sam Wright. I’m a writer. This is a bit about my life (I use “bit” in at least two senses of the word).

In a land no one had ever heard of before (I wish this was an exaggeration), I grew up. Not in the way normal kids grow up though — whereas most kids grew from Tonka trucks and Barbie dolls to Facebook and cell phones, I grew to ideas. All these ideas started swirling around in my head, and so I thought, “what am I going to do with all these ideas?” I had to purge my brain or I was bound to go insane.

When I was introduced to reading and Harry Potter, I became inspired (because that’s what happens when you read Harry Potter). It was then that I figured out what to do to purge all those ideas — I needed to write. Not wanted to write — needed to write. It was a life-changing thought, not just because it was life-changing, but because it was life-changing. I knew what I wanted to do with my life.

Throughout my high school career, I attempted many projects of my own, most of which failed miserably. I experimented in Journalism, working as a section editor for the school magazine. I dabbled in a bit of dark magic as well, taking a few AP classes my senior year. I know what you’re thinking: “why in the world would you attempt something so dark?” Trust me, I thought the same thing once classes started.

After graduation, I transferred in to Salisbury University, which is where I am currently majoring in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. It is my senior year, and I have a horrible case of senioritis. Please, don’t judge. It makes for a messy, distasteful scene, it really does.

Student Weekly is my first project being released to the public. I am also working on a novel, which I am absolutely clueless on when I shall finish. Of course, when I know, you shall, too.
