WELCOME TO WILDROOK'S WRITING LAIR!
A Little Info About Me: I'm a regular twenty-something, trying to figure out what to do with my life after college. My dream is to actually write and publish books someday, but it takes me so long to finish a story that I'm not holding my breath. FYI: Updates will probably remain rare and extremely infrequent. I am generally a nice person, but as my friends can confirm I occasionally go insane. Don't worry it isn't catching. I like anime, manga, books, movies, fantasy, dragons, Otakon, and the PA Renaissance Faire.
If you like my stuff go read FireKitty's stuff. We've done some work together, and are currently working on a story together (not posted yet). She's got some good stuff, and maybe if you bug her she'll write more!
About my stories:
Nights of Bedlam:NOW COMPLETE! (does the happy dance because I've been working on this since my senior year of high school) Hideous murders plague the city of Bedlam. The regular police are unable to catch the killer who is using magic to cover his tracks and provoke fear throughout the city. Enter Dorian Aubrey, head of the magical police force of Bedlam. Although magic is still viewed with disgust by the upper levels of society, the city has no other choice. Dorian and his team are the only ones capable of facing the unimaginable threat behind the storms. With the unexpected help of Sabine Donatov, daughter of the most powerful, and anti-magic, family in the city, Dorian is about to face the greatest threat of his career. Little does he know that this may also be his worst fear from the darkest shadows of his past. WARNING: This will eventually be part of a multi-part story, but I don't have immediate plans for writing the sequel. It can still be read on it's own. You will eventually reach a chapter where it warns you not to read on if you don't want an open ending and you can stop there.
Clash:ON HIATUS (sorry, but I'm not sure when or if I'll pick this back up). The future is a place of science and magic. Since the Reemergence several centuries ago, beings of legend and magic have returned to our world. With them has come conflict. Those without magic have closed ranks, demoting any who show unusual abilities to the status of second class citizens. There is also division amongst the Majiks themselves. A split has developed between those who wish to be treated as equals, and those of a darker persuasion who only wish for blood and pain, the Darkings. Two teenagers are about to cause the greatest upheaval since the Reemergence began. Kat is the daughter of the leader of the Inter-Conntinetal Union, the government of the non-Majik society. She has just discovered her own latent magical powers. Crow is the abused slave of the Darking leader, with undiscovered depths of power. He has just met Kat. Together they are about to turn their worlds upside-down.
Poetry: I don't really write it. In my opinion there are only a few really good poets in the world, and a lot of people who think they are. I know I'm not one of the good ones, so I won't inflict you with many sorry attempts at poetry. On the odd occasion that I do write a poem and I think it's decent, I'll post it here. As you can see, that doesn't happen often.
Short Stories:I suck at writing short stories, because they never want to stay short. Story ideas always expand until I'm faced with either a novel-sized idea or even a series-sized idea. The only short stories you're likely to see are practice ones, and even those are likely to be expanded at some point in the unforeseen future.
The Writing Game:This is a game I have played with FireKitty on a number of occasions. The essential idea is that you come up with several random items and spend a short time writing a story incorporating them. I think our average time per story was 30 minutes to an hour, and the average length was 1-2 pages. It can be longer or shorter, and you can put more restrictions on yourselves, like genre, setting, or quotes. By no means does the story have to be finished. Most of the ones I've posted are just a piece of a story because the original idea grew bigger than the game (again this is why I don't write short stories). If you like to write, and you have friends who like to write, this is a really fun game. It also doesn't have to be restricted to face-to-face interaction or multiple players. FireKitty and I tried a correspondence variation where we posted the words and then about a week later sent each other our stories. This method lets you not only incorporate more words, but gives you more time to develop a complete story. I also recently played a solo version of the writing game and ended up with several fun stories. This is admittedly harder because it is difficult to think of truly random things. But again, it gives you more scope to develop your story.
And that's about all. Reviews are always appreciated. Sadly, I'm not online enough to return review for review, so if all you want is a return review, please don't bother to post. I would like to hear your actual opinions of my stories though. Please enjoy!
Oh, and I do have a MySpace, but I'll only add you if I know who you are, so if you want to try adding me, make sure you send a message with the request telling me you're from FP.
