    “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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It’s amazing where life can take you. I always find myself coming back here though. My writing if you look at it chronologically has been steadily maturing, hopefully it turns into something inspiring. I call myself “The Silence” nowaday’s because the absence of sound is a name all in itself. You might have formerly known me as “The Silent Storm”.

    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!

    Writing with many facets. I’ve been dabbling in the Art of the Word for well over 15 years. If you leave a rating, kindly leave comments as well. What am I doing right? What am I doing wrong? You can help me grow.

    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.
