Hi, this is John Enverga, also known as MadFearow, also known as Mr. Snorlax1986.

Sex: Hell Ye-(Slaps himself ) Uh...sorry. Male.

Nationality: American

8/1/2009: For updates, please see my forums.


John as a reviewer:

I'd like to say I'm more of a reviewer. I'm still learning how to write good stories.

If I reviewed your story, and want to thank me, you have the option of simply e-mailing me using the address in my profile, or you can send a message to my other e-mail address:

snorlaxsnapple@yahoo.com

I'll give you a "thank you" or "you're welcome" in return. You don't have to give me a "returned review" if you don't want to.

I can also do reviews on request (no payback needed.) I'm not a great literary critic; I'll simply tell you what I liked about it. However, I will try to give intelligent comments and constructive criticism if needed.


John as a writer:

I can probably sum up my writing in two words: it sucks.

Yeah, fine, I'll admit the above statement was a plea for sympathy. But after looking at other people's works and comparing them to mine, I just realized that yes, to put it bluntly, my writing sucks. I suck. So be glad I warned you, oh fellow traveller to my domain.

I'd say my writing style is "straight-to-the-point." Well that's what I would call it, I don't know about you.

My "baby" right now is "A Waitress in Chi-Town." Yes, it does suck. But I just wanted to share my experiences of Chicago, that's all. It's cathartic, you know. Especially if you live in a city you both love and hate.

I realize the main character of that story is female, even though I'm male. I dunno. I guess I enjoy writing female characters. I'm quite effeminate myself. I'll elaborate the exact reason why in a future essay. (Don't worry, I'm not going to make her a slut or any other type of degrading female stereotype.)


Should you attempt to read my stories, and wish to review them, try to be honest. Comments, complaints, even flames, I'll take them. Even better, post WHY you had such an opinion of my story. That way, I can learn from both the good and the bad so I can become a better writer and story-maker.

See ya soon.

7/27/2009: Yay! My first complete story: Mattie and Jeffie.


Stories I'm planning to write anytime soon:

A Fantasy/Action/Adventure story (has elements from Japanese RPGs, Anime, traditional European fairy tales, and American film)

A Sci-Fi/Action/Adventure story (based off American Sci-Fi films with a hint of Japanese RPG)

A modern action story (based off modern action flicks, as well as crime dramas)

Maybe something set in Las Vegas? (Similar to Chi-Town, having elements from American comedies and dramas, mixed with my own experiences)

More stories connected to the "A Waitress in Chi-Town" story.
