Inspired to join clay by Jake Moore’s humor articles around two years ago, Joshua initially wanted to be an editor just so he could have a chance at becoming a senior editor. Alas, that editing position had already been filled and the senior editors caught onto his schemes, relegating him to the lowly position of Boys’ Spotlight columnist. Nevertheless, Joshua takes pride in his current place with clay and sees it as a great opportunity for learning more about the TPS community.
Like every good homeschooler, Joshua enjoys reading a good series of books, running cross-country, and writing his own stories, rap songs, and theater plays. His all-time favorite books have been the Redwall series, including plenty of action sprinkled with moments of world building and a noticeable lack of romance, and the Inheritance Cycle, giving him most of the inspiration for his fantasy stories. He also considers Minecraft and Terraria to be among his favorite video games because of the inherent freedom of the sandbox genre and his love of playing with other people. Joshua even ran his own RPG on TPS Forums called “Potter’s Games.”
I’ve had a lot of fun getting to know Joshua in order to write this article. He is a genuinely interesting and unique person, and I can’t wait to see what he will do for Boys’ Spotlight this year. Welcome aboard the staff, Joshua!
