Hi I'm Douglas Leon Michael or DougieM, feel free to call me Douglas or Doug. I'm an University student (as of September 2014) and I like writing. I'm a Harry Potter and Morganville Vampires fan and attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Go Gryffindor!
I am a very busy university student now (BSc in Psychology) so time between stories/chapters/poetry etc being uploaded has increased but it's only due to how busy I am with assignments and society stuff. I'm in the Psychology Society and the Creative Writing Society, I'm also Social Media and Press Officer for Creative Writing Society. I will try to upload when possible, although the time that I have for writing is currently limited. Updates related to my writing will most likely posted on my Tumblr.
Other websites I am on:
Pottermore - Spellchaser8395
Fanfiction.net - DougieM - https://www.fanfiction.net/u/3324953/
Please check out my fellow writer friends that I went to college with: future journalist mylilblackpen and multi year NaNoWriMo-er sootyphoenix they're both great writers and have some brilliant stuff and also jointly ran the college's creative writer's group in the 2012-2013 school year, sootyphoenix also ran it the year before with someone else - seriously they are awesome, check them out, they are also available for random but nice conversations.
Please also check out AppleCrumble and BookcraZzaY both of whom I discovered from Mylilblackpen and also check out NinjaZhi whom I stumbled upon one day, also check out Felrain whom I discovered after they wrote a review on a drabble I uploaded and yukiteddy who is the first person to read and review my 'Fairy-tale' poem, all of which are good writers. And TrueTalker is a really nice person to chat with.
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
I am working on a new story, Number 17, thank you to both sootyphoenix and mylilblackpen, my informal beta readers of sorts for helping with editing and giving me constructive criticism on the first chapter, without whom I probably would have given up on it there. Thank you to those of you who are willing to put up with the long waits between chapters but busyness and life have been getting in the way. I've done Chapter 8 now and uploaded it. I will update when I can but as I previously mentioned, I'm very busy with university stuff and have limited time to write.
"What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea. Resilient... highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it's almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed - fully understood - that sticks; right in there somewhere."
