... After such a couple years away, I have returned! It has been so cool to review my old work, read so many nicefunnyencouraging reviews, visit old friend's pages and see the new works rolling in.
Hope to be here for a while :)
Hopefully, the things I post here can be useful, entertaining or thought-provoking to someone, somewhere.
In real life, this is all mine. However, I can't really stop anyone from doing anything with the stuff that I put on the web—so, y'know, have fun. I hereby wash my hands of it. But if you do want to use something here and you're a nice, mature person put my name somewhere :)
Oh and thanks for taking a look around!
A Million Pieces - I wrote this for a competition but never ended up sending it. I had a lot of fun figuring out the betaing process with Serendipitous Nonsense.
Pass it On - a pretty old one. I entered it in a local short story competition.
Small Town Drama - Childish fiction. When I read this, I'm amazed by how much I was influenced by what was going on around me in my life and the books I read. Most of it is cringe-worthy. I like reading it for nostalgic reasons.
Story Arc 1 - Original story. Names changed. Set in a feudalist world. Fisher was treated as a slave by his father, Darryn the nobleman. Meg is the daughter of Kristopher, an influential crime boss who runs the city. They meet when Darryn and Kristopher team up for evil business. Meg sees Fisher's plight and, faced with her father's unsavoury lifestyle, persuades him to run away with her. And the rest is history, where they meet the other main characters and then save the world. Wow, I just read this again and realised how not-platonic these guys are ... my characters are doing things to the story again.
1 Give Us Some Figgy Pudding - set past the ending to the story. Two of the characters celebrate Christmas the only way they know how.
Story Arc 2 - [COMING SOON] A completely separate story from arc 1. Original, names changed. A type of middle-ages setting.
1 A New Beginning - set before all the exciting stuff happens. I wanted to explore her character a little more. As a child, she was sent to live with lots of different relatives. Some of them not so great.
The Boy and the Wind - sad story. I was bored at the time and reading Hans Christian Anderson stories.
Train Station Girl - I don't like this one as much as some of my other stuff. I didn't quite get the humour I wanted. It was for a writing competition.
Where the White Moss Grows - written for grade 12 English assignment. I hate it a little bit, just because, but this shows the height of my love for description. I like that part of it :)
Reviewing: Honest feedback/discussion/criticism is much appreciated!
I feel a good review, to me, should indicate (a) how the reader felt when they read the thing and (b) what makes them feel that way specifically.
I'll try to review everything I read (hopefully in that sort of way). If I leave you a lame review or a weird one, feel free to ask for clarification or just chat about your story! I like to analyse every word when I'm reviewing. If you like that type of thing, send me an email/PM and I'll try to review some of your stuff :)
I don't review in order to get more reviews for myself, or even necessarily to return reviews (well, not right away anyway). I don't expect it of other people either. (Sorry.)
P.S. If you want help editing a story for grammar, punctuation or other proofreading errors, email me! I'm crazy about that stuff.
I follow stories that I want to keep my eye on and maybe go back to read :) I favourite stories that I'mma gonna download with ficsaver 'cause I want to hug them ... hope nobody minds ... O-o (Seriously, if this is annoying for you, let me know)
