My name is Bill Fountain. Welcome to my universe!
I have learned that the art of writing has the ability to help me process and accept many of my suppressed emotions and fears. I began writing the stories that I wanted to see- short reads about the basic principles of becoming a better person.
My stories do not offer rules but principles that I have learned through my years struggling with addiction and trauma. If you ask me what my drug of choice is, I would tell you all of them. I can't think of a single vice that doesn't have the capacity to destroy my life. That's not to say my stories only appeal to addicts, as I believe the many lessons I have learned can be applied to all various sorts of real situations. My stories are dedicated to anyone on a journey towards serenity.
I have felt extremely dark and lost at times, fearing that life has nothing but misery to offer. However, when I go out into the real world and experience it, speaking with others and finding passion in life, I find that my depressing thoughts seem to dissipate. On the contrary, when I choose to isolate and wallow in the dark times, my life and thoughts get inevitably worse. This is one example of why I love to write stories. I want to create art that illustrates to people and myself the beauty that life has to offer- something that can be virtually impossible to see when wallowing in depression.
Kos Universe is my home base. This is where I will be posting stories and published works, as well as whatever updates are going on in my life. If you have any feedback or questions, please feel free to reach out to me and I will respond to you. My dream is to share my experiences and tools for serenity with you, and I thank you tremendously for checking the site out.
Enjoy the stories!
