Most verbose, possibly. Certainly not the best. As for Foster's Gambit, that's just me trying to make sure things aren't stale and predictable. Yes, there are tropes and archetype characters, and there are 'tips of the hat' to works I admire. But, I'm trying to make sure it's internally consistent, fresh and unpredictable while still remaining novel. I feel good about it.

I'll have to read FG one of these days, I still have to catch up on Puppet though (sorry, soph)

No hurries. A bunch of people just flooded FG with critiques, so I have a bunch of R/Rs to do. ;) And, sad to say, my R/Rs are pretty slow going.

I'm slowly working my way through APitH (sophiesix: can I pronounce that "aye-pif"?) but I'm poly-fictitious.

Thanks all for warm welcome.

Age: 2 x 5 +1 x 3

Welcome Kelly!

I'm excited--a teacher! Communication arts--what does that entail?

parasauralophus

*googles* oh yeah, the parasauralophus, so cute with it's oddly proportioned arms and big thighs. Not like the T-Rex though, he's kind of a douchebag some times...

Your food references, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, in your poem make me want to go get food...now...I'm hungry!

Thanks for the welcome!

com arts is the new name for English: reading, writing, vocab, grammar all that jazz

I love the crest on the para, he's so cute, went to the St Louis Science Center a while back and got a pic of me in front of an animatronic one, then bought one at the Build a Dino that's there (in the same store as Build a Bear)

Yeah now I'm hungry again too, LOL

O.O Wow, I've only been out of the high school for about three years and already I get to go, "Back when I was your age...English was English." XD

But that's really great, because now everything you say relating to grammar ect. will be taken down in stone and rightfully respected, haha.

Believe me, we're older by age only. Just as Emily (lookingwest)

Eh, yeah, I forgot to introduce myself, thanks Drew!

Hi there, TreeStar. So, what sort of stuff do you like to write?

2/7/2010 #106
lookingwest

Everyone, that was my RL friend Mike, haha, we'll see if he comes around that often....we got bored last night at the Uni center and did some poking around FP.

So, what sort of stuff do you like to write?

He dabbled in poetry once a long time ago, though he's actually a genius at writing formal papers, like research ect. He's very good at editing ;) He'll probably stick to just reviewing...

2/7/2010 #107

Well welcome Mike, we always like reviewers though we like to read stuff to so feel free to post away

Hi everyone! I didn't want to disturb the pit with this post, so I thought I'd plonk it here.

I've noticed that we're getting a few topics and because I was paranoid this forum would never expand, I've made them all flagged (ie sticky). But now I think it looks messy. So I was wondering if it would be okay with you guys if I unflagged all the topics except for the welcome one. That means it would stay at the top for newcommers, and the rest would stay the same but underneath it.

I'm asking because it would just change the order a bit. And as users, you guys might not like it in which case, that's cool.

Thoughts?

Nah, that's cool with me. Having the Welcome thread always remain on top makes sense to me; a lot of forums do that anyways.

It's your forum, Xen. Whatever you think works best, I'll go with.

zombie chickens

Name: You can just call me by my pen name, or The Zombie or Spam or whatever the heck you feel like.

Age: I am 19, yeah still in my teens but out of high school for a while.

Who are you?: Just a young loafer who has no idea what she's going to do with her life. I know that sounds pretty cliche (And it is) But it's the truth. I enjoy writing and hope that one day I'll be good enough at it to publish something, until then I am puttering about on Fiction Press because I love having my work out to share with other people. My other hobbies are all fairly artistic, I love sketching, painting, collage and drawing on my jeans with permanant markers. Besides that I guess my other big passion is doing out doors stuff like going on big, off trail adventures and camping and stuff like that. It's really hard having such a loooong winter where I live, but writing keeps me occupied.

What/Why do you write?: I guess pretty much all of my writingon this site is labeled fantasy. It will always be one of my favorite genres simply because it allows a person to use as much creativity as possible. I write a lot of other genres as well that include science fiction, general humor and a couple parodies. And to answer why I write...I don't know, I do it because it's fun and let's me escape to wherever I want to go.

Influences/Inspirations: Neil Gaiman, Michael Chrichton and Yann Martel. All very different writers in style, but allpeople whose work have inspired me to continue writing. Other than that I guess I get a lot of my inspiration from events that happen around me day to day. I like to pick out the little details about people who I meet and maybe apply it to one of my characters, things like that.

Welcome Ms Chickens!

I used to love Michael Crichton, especially stuff like Sphere and the Andromeda strain. Haven't kept up with his latest stuff though. Should i? is it just as good? Yann Martel sounds familiar, what does he write?

The first real novel I ever read was Jurassic Park and I was in love, Andromeda Strain was really good too, but Timeline was the best. (In my opinion) Ever though the movie kind of sucked. Yann Martel wrote Life of Pi. It's this strange, messes with your head type story, which is probably why I like it so much.
