Ok, I’m back. One heart attack, a triple CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft, pronounced cabbage) and two sessions of beating my computer into submission. I am back.
I’m old. Real old. I’m so old I remember when dialing a phone number actually involved using a dial.
I’ve worked as a projectionist, an armored car driver, a help desk tech, a museum tech and laserist, an historical interperter at Old Sturbridge Village, a university assistant at a planetarium and observatory. I’ve been a salesman, a techie, A union VP and a storyteller. I remember the Gemini missions, but was born after sputnik. I have a love of History, Technology, Space, my religion (Christianity) and my country. I believe there is more that binds us together than can tear us apart.
I’ve loved many, married one, was involuntarily divorced.
Oh and I suppose I should tell you. I don’t understand your music and when it comes to sports, I don’t care if the Red Sox beat the 49’ers for the Stanley cup or not. Not judging, it’s just me.

Aurelia is battling a quarter-life crisis with the help of Ficly and a lot of coffee. She is launching into the abyss of a new career as a (sexy) academic librarian, and working it all out in just 1024 characters.

Just a girl with a love for words. I write fiction, erotica, and really mediocre (at best) poetry.
I think I’ve been doing this all my life.

Can you write a biography in 1,024 characters or less? I’ve never tried. Here are the basics: I’m Emily. I’m 17.
Here are the not-so-basics: I’ve been writing since I can remember, and the large majority of my stories have never had the privilege of passing about 1,024 characters. So I figure that this is a good medium for me. My longest story—writen for National Novel Writing Month—is significantly longer than most of my others, which throws off my average. (I’ve always hated outliers.)
I could never write without music.

Just one of those corporate America types, who wants to work on her writing skills. I’d like to think I’m pretty good at taking (constructive) criticism, so lay it on me. Please.
I like writing about places (mostly places I read about in National Geographic), and I’ve written a bunch of short little things about them that I’ll probably be posting now that I’ve found ficly.

Is a student once again and lurking in the shadows, reading your ficlets in secret. ;^) Hopefully will be bitten by the writing bug again one day. OH! I see it has been at least 11 months since I last contributed— sadly, I will not be updating time line today.
Keep up the great work troops! Soldier on, warriors… Soldier on..

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 would love for you to comment my stories please… if you don’t like it… tell me what I can do to make it more appealing! I have a very overactive imagination… and I think you will be able to tell which of my stories are fiction and which aren’t. Some are about my life, some are about what I would like my life to be, and some are about some wacky dream I had the night before!!

Jeez, when I learned that Ficlets had returned I literally screamed at the top of my lungs. And it came up right at the perfect time: the beginning of summer! That’s all I can really say right now….YAY!!! Oh! And I almost forgot to mention that back in the old Ficlets (RIP) I was Ezzie.
Oh and the profile pic of mine…isn’t mine!! I did not draw it whatsoever. I just loved the picture sooo dang much. Here’s the link to it: http://xiaocaca.deviantart.com/art/The-Bright-and-Cavernous-Mind-135580650
