(Of course, I'd appreciate the respect of not claiming my art as your own work. Just don't. No explanation needed.)

Complete --
The Exploding Ant (one-shot) - One I wrote a couple of months back. Probably the only old piece of writing of mine that doesn't make me cringe as much.


Nothing special about me. Like most of the FP population, I'm another amateur who writes for a hobby(?). But just because I write for fun doesn't mean that I don't want to improve. Constructive criticism is most welcome. Just don't flame. :( Well, you can. As long as it has something... constructive in it to say? Just not too mean. Well mean enough that I can handle. Whatever amount it is that I can take. But being mean isn't necessary... It can be, but in a clean way? A good meanie? Be a good meanie. Yeah.

I listen to a wide range of music. -shrug- No need for a silly list. When I write, I listen to movie soundtracks, particularly tracks that have little or no lyrics. I tend to sing along when I hear lyrics, so songs that have them are terribly distracting when I write. Instrumentals are grrreat -- acts kind of like super fuel if I listen to the right score at the right moment.

I have a terrible case of bad-boy syndrome... it's just that jerks are much more entertaining to read and write. Makes you want to grab them in a big bear hug. Not before you sock him in the face for being a prick, of course.

Clichés? Almost every story these days is a cliché. Originality is rare these days. That's not entirely a bad thing though. Just don't ask me to read a story in a high school setting, because most likely, I'll refuse to read it. Unless you ask me to beta, in which if that's the case... go to my beta profile and see if I'm the kind of beta you want. Quite frankly though, I've grown out of the high school phase ever since I graduated high school. So uh... sorry to the majority of writers here on Fictionpress that write them. I'll read what ever else is thrown at me though.

Hum... I'll add more when I can think of anything else. :)

The Marriage Agent by Carrollesque reviews
A pair of goats, a couple chickens, and several cases of imported alcohol will get you a lot in the Gobi Desert. A ride from an insane Chinese cabbie, more dried camel meat then I care to think about, a brace of horses, and, hopefully, a wife.
