Feel free to PM me if you want!
Okay, I never really write here, but I figure if you actually like me as an author, you'll read this, I know I do this sometimes. Anyway, let's say I'm not going to put any copy and paste things on here right off the bat, okay? So if you're looking for colorfully filled with pasted stuff, this is not the place. Alright, let's get started.
My name is AJ Price. I've been writing since I was nine, however this account wasn't made when I was nine. I wanted to write because when I read I feel like I'm actually in the place I'm reading about and I want to try and make people get that glorious feeling as well. I think this also helps me with how I spell things and my vocabulary, however I still make stupid spelling mistakes, (all fixed on my MapleWood Story now) and I can't say that's going to stop for a while.
I have pets and best friends, one who has an account here after I bugged her for a really long time to share her stories with the world, her name is Proud To Be Canadian. I like to think I'm the reason everyone started reading on this site and Fanfiction, but I'm not. Either way, I know I'm the reason she bothered to post anything here because I bug her endlessly about it.
I write fantasy and supernatural, sci-fi, as long as it's not real, I'll write it. I felt like telling you a bit about how my MapleWood story came to be, because the progress of the story is one of my favorite parts about the story.
Believe it or not, the story originated from my actual life. I thought my friends were crazy and wanted to write a story about characters who portrayed their insane characteristics, so I started writing a story called 1 Crazy High School, but that idea was thrown away in a matter of weeks. After a while, I made a MapleWood story on another account I have, The Writing Reader, however the story's plot has changed so much. I took Jesse's name from the MapleWood's original story, but other than that, everything came from the 1 Crazy High Schools story. I thought of the idea suddenly while laying in bed and started writing the second I woke up. I hadn't fixed any problems, because when I get an idea, I just write it, then realize how illogical it is.
The story started with a much different beginning, instead of introducing a BLack Hole chapter, I had a chapter written about Jayden being new to school, and how he had flipped through a pamphlet about MapleWood High, how he was nervous, and how his mother practically shoved him out the door. This version does not exist.
When I came up with this new version of the story, it was about a week before I went to camp, where I'd see all my friends. I told them about it and soon started brainstorming properly. (That's my problem, I don't usually do this part correctly) I came up with a cast of seven, as I really adore this number, however, I soon realised many of the characters were unecessary. Roxanne, from the prologue, and Charlotte were originally people I had wanted to put in with Carmen, Jesse, and Jayden. (Chase had not existed.)
The names came from the following places:
My friend told me I shouldn't quit this idea like I did others and I agreed. The story ended up having the same town, MapleWood but with a whole new cast of characters, who still portray some of my friend's characteristics, Chase's laziness, his smartness, Carmen's hostility, Jesse's inability to stay still... and so I turned the 1 Crazy High School from a school with strange students, to a school that was split in two and was strange itself as well as the students.
Here are the characteristics of my friends put in each character:
Another idea I have is called Mafia 13, now it's not about a bunch of people who enjoy killing others, if you PM me, I will tell you more.
Now for a new project me and Proud To Be Canadian will be starting in the summer is a brilliant idea that is sure to get anyone interested. We haven't worked out the kinks, but I've gotten a drawn out plan, way to far ahead then she was planning on going as she's busy with her own stories, and I even came up with a title and two other books. Now, this story came to be by this simple thought: "What if we worked together and wrote a story?"
She's got awesome skills, I've got great ideas, (she does too) and we'd make the best team ever! So, we started brainstorming and came up with two main characters, each an exaggerated version of ourselves and put them in a fantasy/supernatural context, so this will be tons of fun to write. However, the personalities of the characters in this story are like us, yet unlike us, and it's going to be so much fun, I can't wait to write with her!
Alright, so I've blabbed enough, see ya!
