I am the Heatless Flame, and its good to meet you! Yes anyway... heres some stuff about me.
First and foremost, I have been writing since I was in sixth grade, and ever since I loved the creativity that flows through my body as I put ideas to pen (rather Microsoft Word). I am fourteen currently, and despite being a fairly talented writer for my age, I suffer from extreme writer's block. I can get ideas in the blink of an eye, but putting them down as tangible throughts and notion. Urgh. But I digress.
I have two favorite sets of books. The best series I have ever read is undoubtedly the Bartimaues Trilogy. I highly reccommend it for excellent and refreshing characters, some comedic asides, and action to spare. After that comes The Ranger Apprentice Series, of which there are currently 7 in their origin country (Australia). They have, again, some humor, lovely characters, and superb action quality.
Ugh. Eragon sucks. Weak, Mary sue characters, overly complex details, an obnoxious writer, boring and overwritten plot. Worst series ever.
