I write realistic stories about urban life.

I have 2 novels selling on Amazon right now.

Other work I've wrote that I class as "side projects" is a sitcom episode, a horror story, a children's novella, two series of short stories set in The Sanctuary with 2 different main characters, a comedy series, and a few poems. I'm not a poet.

My perfect novel would be a realistic book about urban life as usual, but would have good characters, narration and plot, with no gimmicks. I have yet to write that book.

It could turn out to be a novel called Miracles and Misuse which is about angels who give a city councillor of an overshadowed district, magic powers, and she is reckless with them whilst the angels hope she uses them to improve society unaided. The angels gave her the magic powers because they want her to right the wrongs of the world, and she uses them to be reckless.

The story starts with her being caught rewinding time by 15 seconds repeatedly. But when this happens, everyone can sense that time rewound itself, but she doesn't know that. Everyone is writing lines on paper for slacking off at work earlier, and some supervisor, or other higher up or authoritive person is walking around the room at everyone writing, and notices that her paper always gets more words, whilst everyone else's words keep rewinding themselves, yet they keep writing. Sabrina completes her work on time, but gets caught by the adult at work walking around. Then she gets her time rewinding ability revoked by the angels. Plus there's a guy who likes her who she doesn't like back, and the angels have made it his job to watch over her. He can watch her at any time, and has 3 magic powers, he can make things start, make things go, and make things appear. So he uses those powers to orchestrate situations to try to force Sabrina to like him. Sabrina doesn't know that this guy can stalk her or that he has magic powers. The concept of the book is to ask, if people had free reign over their actions without liability, what would they do. As you read the book, you'll find out whether Sabrina's recklessness gets the better of her, or if she helps to regenerate the lackluster district that she lives in. And there will be no gimmicks, as the book will be written in such a way, that it could happen without magic, as everyone around the 2 people have rational and logical explanations for everything That's Miracles and Misuse.

PS. I don't write Young Adult books. That is ruining literature.

------------------------------------------ Everything below this line is stuff I would not love to write, but could aid Bryce Johannes in his yet to be proposed collaborating Quora book writing project. ------------------------------------------


I wouldn't choose to write essays, unless it was about something that only I knew.

I write essays of whatever is thrown at me. So far, Health and Social Care for that course I did, and one about English Literature.

I've wrote an essay on analysing English literature, comparing Dulce De Decorum Est with the prosecution speech in Shakespeare's King Henry V play.

I've also done essays on the following topics.

  • Factors of Health & Safety
  • Sociological Perspectives
  • Nature vs Nurture
  • Behaviourism (Erikson and Freud)
  • Humanistic Approach
  • Inequalities In Society
  • Equalities, Diversity and Rights
  • Complementary Therapies
  • Asthma and Diabetes
  • Preventing Disease In Public Health
  • Sexual Health Leaflet
  • History Of Medicine ---> Commercialisation of Medicines || Pricing of American Healthcare || Public Health

Three people here want me to write my answer to If you were to write a book on the unwritten rules of social interaction, what would the table of contents look like?

And coming up, I will write one later on soon on a scientific theory about the constraints of the technical and cognitive abilities of humans, in a theory I've made up yesterday called Underpinning Factor Theory.

So now you know Bryce Johannes what I'm good for.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
