    The pen is mightier than the sword. How outdated. In the 1900’s, it would have been, “The typewriter is mightier than the machine gun.” But in modern times? “The word processor is mightier than the particle-beam weapon.”

    I play video games, build things with Legos, and try to kid myself into thinking that I’m mature. I love dorking around with computers and I have a strange obsession with hats – nice ones, that is, no baseball caps. My dream is to either become a Masterbuilder or a drummer, and neither seem very close. Such is life.

    Since joining Ficly, I’ve come to realize that I love playing off of other people’s work, reshaping their ideas to form some coherent things. Half my stories come either from challenges or from hitting the “Random Story” button and writing a sequel (I highly recommend this, the things that you’ll find are amazing!).

    Please be kind and leave constructive criticism as I’m from the land down under and the way I describe things may be a wee bit different to the way you verbalise.

    “If people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.”
    —Ludwig Wittgenstein

    My name is Wednesday, and I guess you could say that for the most part that quote personifies me. If there were no silliness in this world I would die.

    However, I guess it’s not all shits and giggles on my side of the pond. Because as much as I’d like, life is not just silliness.

    Rest is not idleness,
    and to lie sometimes on the grass
    under trees on a summer’s day,
    listening to the murmur of the water,
    or watching the clouds float across the sky
    is by no means a waste of time.

    I dabble a little in a lot of things — writing, webcomics, gaming, photography, web design, music, and more. I’m a full-time code-wrangler and a part-time farmer with 40 acres, a lot of animals, and far, far too much to do.

    I’m out of my element here, but that’s fine.
    It’s a good place to practice the parts of story telling I love the most, namely world building.
    I like my science fiction and I like my fantasy, but I prefer to keep them separate.
    My style always seems to be overly formatted and abusive toward standard grammar, which will make more sense once you read a story of mine.
    I write in spurts and get inspiration in phrases, so time may be long between submissions, but I’m trying to make a habit of this.
    Feedback of any shape is always greatly appreciated.

    Hey guys. I’m around here every now and again.

    I write my stories at 3 AM.
    Ficly is nifty, you’re all cool cats.
    Bring on the comments, I eat them for breakfast.
    I always try to challenge myself. I often bite off more than I can chew.
    I’m a multi-dimensional being so sometimes my tenses will be kerfuffed.
    I don’t rate anymore because I have concluded that I don’t know what I’m talking about.

    I’m a girl who doesn’t play video games working for a video game company. I was hoodwinked into majoring in philosophy while maintaining an avid interest to marine biology. I plan on going back to school to nurture this interest and turn it into a career. I also plan on getting over my fear of the ocean as I do so.

    I also really like squids. A lot.

    Charlie K was a single celled organism who had grown on the side of a test tube in an alchemist’s laboratory. His life was a simple one, and Charlie was not happy with it at all.
    One day the Sultan summoned the famous alchemist Yakuul Kon-Zizzi.
    “Zizzi You have spent fifty years and a ton of gold trying to create the elixer of life. Either you will produce it today or you will be executed.”
    Zizzi had no fear because back at the lab, the elixer was complete, waiting to be tested.
    What the alchemist did not take into account was the will of the single celled organism that would be later known as Charlie k.
    The three microns Charlie had to cross to reach the elixer seemed like hundreds of miles.
    Later that evening when the sultan was removing the head of the alchemist, a young boy only one day old felt no regret that the alchemist had to die, because with the help of the philosopher’s stone, Charlie k was born.

    I’ve written some fairly mediocre stuff in the past, and now I’m hoping to go past that and maybe achieve ‘average’. Still hoping to pick up some skills from the writers I see here – I’m hoping absurdly that maybe if I hang around long enough, I’ll become as good as them. And yes, getting some creativity would be a good idea for me, too.

    So if you have any comments or anything, feel free to tell me. No matter how harsh they are – okay, maybe I’d like it if it wasn’t that harsh. But critiques are always handy because I’m still awful at writing. Would appreciate any advice!

    Kicking it at the University of Oklahoma. I like writing, science, almost all forms of music (literally), creating constructed languages, graphic/visual arts, and a good book. I will not hesitate in saying I am a Christian and I am proud to be an American.

    I’m a 24-year-old reporter working at a small-town newspaper in the Pacific Northwest. I want to stretch my writing chops just a wee bit, hence the interest in this site.

    I’m a skeptic, atheist and self-proclaimed lover of dinosaurs and 1950’s sci-fi movies. I imagine all of those themes will eventually make into the stories I write here.
