    I am The Blue Sparrow (haha remember that ::takes out sword:: hehe) I am a ficlets survivor and I am very glad to be back.

    I am a helpless romantic that stumbled into Ficlets and fell in love with writing. I also fell in love with the family that I came to know on that site. I seemed to grow as a writer more and more and my grades in my english class shot up.

    Now in college I try to find time to write even though now it seems like my writing time is consumed by technical research papers. I have changed a lot since I stumbled into Ficlets, but cute sweet poetry is a still a part of my life.

    I am in LoA as The Holder of the Blue Crayon of Destiny (see my icon :] )

    Series I’m in:

    I am a self-proclaimed member of the LoA (League of Awesomeness): Mistress of Well-Intentioned Indecision.

    Special Needs Teacher, wife, mother of two, center-brained, imaginative, pragmatist. Sometimes I sing. Sometimes I take pictures. Sometimes I doodle or make stuff.
    I just have too many irons in the fire.. I like fire.. it is pretty and warm.. I like to dance and sing by the fire, but I am careful. I always remember who I am.

    I am Mistress Elshanor of Hawk Manor, Head Librarian, Keeper of the Secret Passageway to Mount Krully, and Keeper of the Ficlinomicon AND Kevin Lawver’s Pen. I think..

    Ohh how I’ve missed this. This site gave me the motivation I always needed to write and I’ve missed it horribly. By day I work for a newspaper, by night, I delve into the world of CherryPop McGee and assorted Zombies. I wrote her story, which got it’s start in this community, and it’s all done and available on Amazon.com now :)

    Dr. Tim’s Neurotic Rules of Ficly Life

    [Disclaimer: This is not intended to be binding nor in any way an expectation of general members of Ficly, league members, family members or wearers of Member’s Only jackets]

    1. Comment to Story posting ratio must exceed 5:1. Goal is 10:1. In other words, I write a story then find five others (at least) upon which to comment before writing another.

    2. For every solo shot or sequel of my own material, I must write a sequel or prequel to the work of another author. If I’m going easy on myself, participating in a challenge also fulfills this requirement.

    3. If someone comments on one of my stories, I go find one of theirs upon which to comment. It only seems fair, and I like to think it encourages commenting.

    4. Awesomeness is the goal, always. Call me on it when I fail, please.

    5. Clearly mark mature content and err on the side of caution.

    6. Golden Rule remains in effect for all sequels, prequels, and comments.

    Great stories happen to those who can tell them. -Ira Glass, although he attributed it to Anonymous.

    If you comment my stuff, please be as nit-picky as necessary. I crave constructive criticism. Also alliteration.

    If you want to start a series with me, drop a note! Remember to comment on everything, rate, and use the Random Story button at the bottom of the page.

    Warning: Shameless Plug Ahead Had around 570 ficlets on the old site—you can read ’em through the link above if you like.

    So I figure I should fill this box in, because otherwise my profile page promised to cry in despair.

    The name’s Orange, OrangeOreos. I’m from a now-extinct organization known as Ficlets. I haven’t written much since the good ship Ficlets was sunk by AOL, but I’ll try to get back into the habit!

    I guess I should also say that I’m a junior in the fun-house named high school. The school theater is my second home, and all my non-cyber home-skillets live in it, too.

    Good writing, everyone!

    Finally back after a much too lengthy sabbatical.

    Hopefully you’ll all remember me. And if not, I hope to be remembered.

    Saint Chuck is a sarcastic, slightly cynical agnostic vegan currently residing in Germany with a love for imaginary tigers, yoga, old James Bond films and loud rock music, who would rather sleep anywhere but in bed and only bites if you’re into that kind of stuff.

    To follow those who critique me

    To make my giving (my stories) but a tenth part of my gifts (my comments)

    I strive for a 10:1, comment-to-story ratio, cause the math is easier.

    I hope to have as many Ficleteer friends as I have Ficlet stories.

    Read, Rate, Comment, Sequel.

    That’s my ficly mantra.

    Also, that’s the way I roll.

    In my opinion, there’s no better compliment than offering an unsolicited sequel to someone else’s story. I think inspired, good-hearted sequels are more breathtaking than the best comments and ratings will ever be.

    (June 2014) Currently out of work and I should be using my computer to look for a job but Ficly is more enticing.

    I love comments – leaving them and giving them.

    If a piece or a challenge is good, I would like to know that you appreciated it.
    If it is less than stellar, I appreciate that your comments will help me to improve.

    I have a wife, two kids, a cat and a mortgage. I design and maintain websites for a living and have never considered myself a writer. I like board wargaming, drawing and I also attempt to play the trombone. Hopefully, I’m getting better.

    Real writers likely to influence my writing style are Kurt Vonnegut, Arthur C. Clarke, Douglas Adams and Robert Sheckley.
