    Hi, I’m Paul.

    Winner of the 2009 All England Pro-Am Hikikomori Championship via Unanimous Disqualification for not getting out of bed and turning up. Currently studying for a Degree in Classics with a bit of Archaeology and Creative Writing thrown in for fun. Collector of bad films, reader of trashy vampire romance, writer of, so far, short stories and bad poetry.

    Defeated the Spider-Queen of Mars in hand to hand combat for the Sceptre of D’Hash, but doesn’t like to talk about it.

    Once loved a sparkly chested vampire so much the body glitter wore off.

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

    Usually found hanging out round the northern end of Manchester, UK.

    A graphic designer by trade and study, I currently freelance for the big bucks. Also, I’m not even pretending that I know what goes on in the world of writing…I just like trying new things.

    I am a college student, firstly; a lover of both the conventional and the unorthodox. Dichotomies in fiction particularly fascinate me – with the concept of opposites attracting and whatnot.

    Otherwise, art remains to be my secondary passion – I sketch, and paint with watercolors and acrylics mainly, and hope to collaborate with my current English professor in the creation of a children’s book; the illustrations therein would be my works. So yeah – I’ve got my fingers crossed for its completion and publication!

    A thousand characters, that’s all I get?
    To introduce myself, a new Ficlet?
    But what if I want to talk about the time I…
    And the time I did that?
    Well, might as well use positive thinking here.
    This is me!
    Pen Name: Skylar
    Sex: Male
    Age: 15
    Social Security #: ************
    Not really sure what I’m supposed to type here :P
    But, I will say this: I just got into writing,
    so I’m not the best. I’m here to get better!
    And that’s where you, yes you, come into play!
    So, my friend, judge me! Critique me! Hate me! Troll on me!
    Make me into the image, of a God! ….
    Or, something a bit less than that, that’s fine too.

    I’m open to any critiques, no need to whitewash it. I want to improve my writing and enjoy the flow of creative juices even if they go splat.

    I joined Ficly to challange myself and break out of the writing box I’ve constructed over years of just “thinking about it” instead of expressing it through written word.

    I live in Minnesota and love everything oriental including sushi and goldfish but not at the same time.

    I’m wytherwings, also known as Camille.

    I’m so excited! I’ve missed ficlets and our whole family so much… it’s great to be back =]

    I’m a proud member of the LoA, and with my buddy George, we are the Awesome Twins.

    I like eating cold pizza for breakfast. And sleeping with wet hair. the sound of rain, and the smell of books. I like minty gum and red vines and candy canes. I like playing cards and dancing around to bands like Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head. I like singing to David Bowie and doodling on my jeans. I like to surprise people. Hi =]

    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.

    I believe in purple. I believe that laughter is the best way to cure a heartache. I believe that you should only surrond yourself with people who are going to take you higher. I believe in love like any silly teenager. I believe that your siblings can be your best friends. I believe that music is the best way to cure a heartache. That the best way to get revenge is to smile and act like nothing is wrong. I believe that it is okay to act immature because we don’t always need to be grow up. I believe in myself.

    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.

    “Difference is a blessing, not a challenge. We define ourselves by knowing other people. We know our world by learning about difference. What is the word we often use? Tolerance. Is that a positive notion? Not really. ‘For the time being, I will tolerate you?’ I’m against that concept. It means difference is a threat. Difference is a blessing and you don’t tolerate a blessing. You embrace it.” — Mohammad Mahallati.

    I am a 12-year-old middle school girl. Writing is my life, it’s all I do. If you remember me from when I first came to this website, I was a naive little girl, lost in her imagination. Now, thanks to ficly, I have grown into a mature young writer. This website has been very helpful for me and I hope I can grow as a person and writer with the help of ficly.

    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.

    Man, so everything I write here sounds weird. I wish more people would sequel and prequel, I wish I was brave enough to do so more myself and I wish I had more time to spend talking to people on here, as everyone seems cool.

    What defines a writer? Is it someone who can put a few words together to make a sentence, or is it someone who writes with professional English skills?

    I don’t know, I am only 13 and therefore don’t know much about writing techniques but I do know that every word I do write that is to do with stories, poems or plays – from Shakespeare essays to descriptive writing- I love. :)

    I hope you like my stories and if not have fun writing your own,

    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.
