Author has written 1 story for Humor.

Hello all. I'm working on 2 very large stories and around 11 smaller stories at the moment. I don't publish much of anything that isn't already complete, so I haven't published anything yet. My literary goal is to be the kind of author that regularly turns out work of the sort that English teachers put on their walls and recommend to everybody, although I'd settle for simply impressing people on FictionPress.

My avatar is Porco Rosso from the 1992 Hayao Miyazaki film Porco Rosso, during the theater scene. I chose him because out of all my favorite movie characters, he is the strangest. I highly recommend all of Miyazaki's works, including all his films and his manga, as the rest of the films by Studio Ghibli. My screen name has a story behind it. One of the things I like to do when I have free time and I can't write anything is to set up PEZ dispensers in a group, sit down across the room, and, with a rubber band and a pile of pieces of folded paper that my brother called "paper bullets", shoot them down one by one. It's fun (and not sadistic, trust me on that one). I didn't realize until later the other implications of the name, such as ending disagreement with the written word rather than with metal bullets, or that my writing would be like a bullet in some way.

While on FictionPress, I usually spend my time reviewing new writers. I review works, not people, and I review them with my characteristic brutal honesty. I believe that new writers should be reviewed with brutal honesty for the same reason I believe people shouldn't eat too much junk food: Sure, you like it, but it isn't good for you in the long run. New writers need to know what they've done so then they can get better. The object of every critic should not be to impose your own likings on writers (which is selfish on your part and damaging to writers), but to tell the writer how they can write what they are writing in a way that suits their inner vision.

One of my biggest pet peeves is the phrase "pet peeves". Something else that bothers me in a small way is when writers write stories that are obviously some sort of self-fantasy on their part, i.e. the ninja/soldier/poet boy, beautiful couples with only minor problems, etc. I also don't like it when people write about suicide or homicide, as it puts us teenage writers in a bad light. I like long, thought-out stories with developed characters (don't we all?)

That's about it. Thanks for actually reading this bio.

Made collectively between me and my brother over a series of days and a series of Halloween candies. An endless one-shot. This is Utter Nonsense, a whine against both normal and abnormal conventions. Review with a light heart, please. I didn't mean it.
