Author has written 1 story for Horror.
Confession: I have no idea what to put here. I hate memes with a passion, and I haven't exactly written much yet.
How about the basics?
Age: 13-21 (wow, that's pretty vague). I'm slightly paranoid, so don't expect me to get specific. I've been writing since at least age ten.
Favorite books: I also love reading: essential for writing. So I have a lot of favorite books. The main ones are anything by Stephen King (especially Dreamcatcher), absolutely anything by H.P. Lovecraft, and this incredibly underappreciated novel called The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey. Read it. It's worth it, especially if you like horror, nineteenth century stuff, deep books, or good books in general. Read it. Please?
Reviews: Since I'm not expecting to get like 200 reviews per story, or more than 20, I'll reply to all that I get. I'm also a Grammar Nazi, so if I critique your spelling/grammar it doesn't mean I don't like your story. (If I say I don't like your story, however, then I don't like your story. Which should go without saying.)
Genres: Horror, sci-fi, psychological, suspense
Likes: Good spelling and grammar, long stories (note that I'm a hypocrite), realistic characters
Dislikes: Mary-Sues, romance in general, badly done paranormal creatures (zombies, werewolves, and especially vampires)
I'm currently working on (at least) two stories:
First, The School Is Old, somewhere between sci-fi, psychological, and horror. A normal high school is suddenly cut off from the outside. It seems like everyone else has disappeared. Anyone who tries to go outside of the school either disappears or, without too many spoilers, is... dissuaded. Forcibly. There will probably be no overt supernatural things besides people disappearing strangely or else going insane for no visible reason: no zombies, no werewolves, no ghosts.
Despite what the prologue may suggest, it's not about this girl who had this, like, ttly sucky life and then when the school got shut off from everything else, she became important and *spoiler* she got popular and got a boyfriend, like OMG. In other words, a Mary-Sue (if you aren't familiar with that term, the Wikipedia page is good).
No, it's definitely not... in my opinion, at least. The character in the prologue isn't even close to the most important person in the story as I see it, and I like to think I'm good at avoiding Mary-Sues.
Updates Mondays and Fridays until I get lazy. I might even finish it eventually! Maybe. I am having fun with it, so I really might.
Second, an untitled science fiction story for which I'm currently trying to find a beta. End Of The World, first person, very short, in my opinion one of the better short stories I've written.
