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 am a twenty-three year old third-year law student at the University of Baltimore. I am also one of the lead developers for Lithmeria, a MUD currently in beta-testing. In college, I majored in philosophy and minored in religion. I enjoy action movies, especially those of the superhero variety, and I prefer country music.

British-born writer and geek humorist living and working in Los Angeles, California.
I’m the writer of the online fantasy-comedy comic strip “Deadlong” (deadlong.com), the co-creator and Head writer for scifi-comedy webcomic “Jump Leads” (jump-leads.com), the co-writer of Left 4 Dead parody webseries “Boomer’s Day Off” (benpaddon.net/boomers-day-off/), and the creator, co-writer and host of PortsCenter (portscenter.tv). I’m also one of the staff writers for the second season of “Chick” (whoischick.com) which was recently named one of New Yorker Magazine’s “Web Series to Watch”.
From December 3rd, 2012 I have resolved to write one Ficly a day, every day, until I die. We’ll see how that goes.

There are catalogues of catalogues.
There are poems about poems.
There are plays about actors played by actors.
Letters due to letters.
Words used to clarify words.
Brains occupied with studying brains.
There are griefs as infectious as laughter.
Papers emerging from waste papers.
Conditions conditioned by the conditional.
Large rivers with major contributions from small ones.
Forests grown over and above by forests.
Machines designed to make machines.
Dreams that wake us suddenly from dreams.
Health needed for regaining health.
Stairs leading as much up as down.
Glasses for finding glasses.
Inspiration born of expiration.
And even if only from time to time
hatred of hatred.
All in all,
Ignorance of ignorance
And hands employed to wash hands.

Enjoying Ficly far more than is good for my assignment schedule.

As a self-proclaimed Knight of Ficly:
I, Sir Bic, do solemnly swear -
To befriend those who befriend me
To follow those who critique me
To make my giving (my stories) but a tenth part of my gifts (my comments)
“Long live the land of Ficly!” – o)
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.
“Give me Ficly or give me death!” – o)

If you met him on the street, Miles would probably seem quite tangible. This is a common misconception, and the writer would like to gently remind the reader that he does not actually, as such, exist. And also calmly suggests that you should probably discontinue the practice of talking to your hallucinations in public.
“I am a writer, and I will write the words that change the world. Because of me, the world will be changed. But I will not be remembered, nor do I long for such. Because somebody had to write them, and it didn’t have to be me.”
