Always feel free to write sequels or prequels to my stories. I love reading where other writers take my ideas.
I was born in 1961 (old codger). I started writing for fun over Christmas 2011. I was recommended Ficly by a friend (thanks, Malc!). Done a few crazy things in my time (and a few sensible ones…like marrying Jan and fathering my three daughters).
Amongst the crazier ones are: appearing in Robot Wars (UK series 3); recording an album; having 5 wisdom teeth removed (yes 5!); meeting the drummer from Split Enz at his home in New Zealand and buying a fuzzbox he designed…

Once I wrote, and it was a gas; soon found out I had a brain of glass. Plotting is hard- soon did I find that detail’s the devil, striking me blind. Now I try, try to take it easy writing small and fine, build the plots up slowly and we’ll be divine, so one day, I say, that Big Damn Novel will be OK.

Ello, I’m 15. Iris is the name I like to be called, and I love to write about everything dark in my life to turn it into something beautiful. I’d like to believe that I’ve been in love or something like it, but I have especially felt a lack of it. Much of my life was drenched in darkness that I’ll never be able to forget; I am young, but I feel so tired and as though my life has been so long and black. But, tis in the past now, and all I can do is keep living and hope that one day things in my life might change for the better. I am a proud supporter of gay rights and human’s right to believe how ever it is they wish.
I love writing, music, books, anime, and stimulating conversation. My name is Iris and I am alone.

I write poetry. Just poetry. One thing I’m trying to do is write about acts, things, people. Instead of emotion, mostly because I’m just tired of it.
I never quite know how to comment on stories , seeing as I don’t have a firm grasp of what’s involved. If I try and look silly, well, sorry.
But anyway. I write because I love it. Not because I’m good at it, or looking for praise, just because I love it.

Goals as a commenter:
1. Comment/Ficlet ratio = 5:1
2. Provide consistent feedback
3. Provide feedback to lightly commented ficlets
4. Comment on unfinished drafts.
Goals as a writer:
1. Fully convey an emotion or idea (don’t force the reader to read a prequel or sequel to enjoy the writing)
2. Explore diverse formats (human interest, comedy, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, etc.)
3. Original Work /(Sequel + Prequel + Challenge) ratio = 1:1
4. Crowd-source writer’s block – publish unfinished drafts.

I enjoy writing, regardless of how good I am at it. it also represents, for me, a pleasant outlet of excess emotion. this is why a fair bit of my work is not the happiest of content. however, I also write for enjoyment when I do not need to vent my feelings so I hope you can find something which takes your interest in the stories I write.
PLEASE prequel or sequel if you feel the inspiration. I LOVE seeing different interpretations of my work and new takes on my somewhat over-explored themes.

A no-name, aspiring author who can’t stop writing. Looking ahead, he strives for perfection. Shackled by various forms of entertainment, he dreams of success. Most stories here are an invitation to YOU, to join me in creating new stories, new worlds, and a different tomorrow.

J. A. Keane has spent the majority of his 19 years trying to act like a somewhat normal member of modern society, but seeing as nobody else seems to be acting normal these days (which basically makes the entire concept of “normality” redundant and nothing but a bad joke (my inner Comedian-from-Alan-Moore’s-“Watchmen” talking there)), he has decided to give up on that, and continue along his path of random offbeat-ness.
When he’s not doing that, he also likes to write long-winded rants on Tumblr, miniature rants on Twitter, medium sized rants on Facebook, and adamantly refuses to use LOLspeak (as he finds it annoying, and believes that it’s a slightly differentiated (but not THAT much, really, if you think about it) form of Newspeak).
And when he’s not doing any of that, he likes to write exaggerated biographies that are intended to make him sound more interesting than he actually is.
And after all that, he also really likes to end his website biographies on a joke.

Greetings, programs of Ficly!
Somewhat paradoxically, I am simultaneously new – and not new – here; formerly, I was on this site under the handle of “J.A. Keane” from the start of 2010, up ‘til mid-to-late 2012. Things would have merrily continued that way…if it weren’t for the malfunction that wound up with me being unable to log back onto here with my Facebook account (oh, technology!), so henceforth I have returned like a fine-feathered phoenix from the flames (albiet with considerably less spectacle) to start anew.
However, if you’d like to see the sort of stuff I did before on my old account, you can take an inquisitive gander herein:
Be seeing you…
