The Writingwolf



The Writingwolf aims to inspire through storytelling, to create a world without discrimination, freed from the clutches of poverty and pollution…


I am a student, a leader, and an advocate for change. I’m majoring in Mathematics at N.C. State University with minors in Political Science and Creative Writing. In addition to working as a university tutor, I serve as a resident mentor, secretary of the GLBT CommUnity Alliance, and director of visibility and communication for NCPIRG at N.C. State, an organization dedicated to promoting student activism and community involvement. My passions include writing and reading, and I aspire to become as influential as J.R.R. Tolkien and J.K. Rowling.


In 2005, I began working as a teacher’s aid (madrich in Hebrew) at my synagogue’s religious school, and in 2008 I began training to become a full teacher in 2009, the same year I attended the Alexander Muss High School in Israel and enrolled at Guilford Technical Community College. I was shoved into leadership and became president of the Gay-Straight Alliance, the first of many leadership roles that included student ambassador, secretary of Phi Theta Kappa, and Student Government Association president; I also graduated from the Student Leadership Institute in 2011 and received the President’s Medal in 2012. I began participating in NaNoWriMo in 2006, and from 2010 to 2012 I served as the Municipal Liaison for the Triad, North Carolina, region; I’ve completed the challenge for seven consecutive years.


My goals after N.C. State are to pursue graduate degrees in mathematics and teach at the college level to inspire tomorrow’s scientists and teachers. After a period spent serving as a representative of the people, I want to retire and spend the rest of my days writing the stories I have always yearned to write.


I strive to live with integrity and always keep my values close to me, and often they are the inspiration for what I write about: Diversity, service, learning and leadership, equality, and community.


I want to create a world where there is no longer discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression (you could even say GLBT rights are my Fire and Fuel); and I want to do my part to end poverty and pollution, so our children can inherit a world worth living in.

I am, by nature, a dealer of words, and words are the most powerful drug known to humanity. – Rudyard Kipling

  1. Hey,
    I randomly hit your blog becaues i searched nanowrimo.
    So we have two things in common; both Jewish, both homeschooled. Actually, make that three, because I also love to write.
    Btw, you didn’t mention, are you Conservative?

    • Hey there!

      Thanks for stopping by–and thank you for your lovely comments, I appreciate them so much!

      It’s really cool that we have so much in common. I think I just noticed one more, though: We both won NaNo! Congratulations, Unravel, great job!

      And, yes, I am Conservative. Was it especially obvious? I’m curious, lol.


  2. Hey Darren,
    That was a really long wait, but I wasn’t able to go on blogs for a while. Thanks for the congrats, feels like NaNo was years ago….
    it was slightly obvious that you’re conservative…I was debating between that and orthodox…

  3. Hi Darren! I wanted to let you know I’ve mentioned you as a “nominee” for the Inspiring Blog Award. Yes, these are like chain letters, and I don’t expect you to do anything as I’m sure you have far greater accolades. However, it gives me the opportunity to express how much I appreciate your originality and expertise. I can happily peruse your entries for hours. I’ve posted a link to your blog from mine, hoping to increase your readership further.

    • Hi Holly! Thank you so much for this delightful message! I hadn’t known there was such an award, but to be nominated for it is quite an honor. Thank you very much–you have brightened my day tenfold (and since it’s a pretty sunny day, that’s saying something). I do hope you have a great day, Holly, and thank you again.
