    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 The Blue Sparrow (haha remember that ::takes out sword:: hehe) I am a ficlets survivor and I am very glad to be back.

    I am a helpless romantic that stumbled into Ficlets and fell in love with writing. I also fell in love with the family that I came to know on that site. I seemed to grow as a writer more and more and my grades in my english class shot up.

    Now in college I try to find time to write even though now it seems like my writing time is consumed by technical research papers. I have changed a lot since I stumbled into Ficlets, but cute sweet poetry is a still a part of my life.

    I am in LoA as The Holder of the Blue Crayon of Destiny (see my icon :] )

    I am an author of science fiction, general fiction short stories, poetry, and non-fiction. I have been published in several genres, including fantasy and poetry, as well as non fiction.

    At one time I published my own computer magazine.

    I have published several books using Print On Demand.

    Spelling and grammar vex me sorely.

    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 =]

    I have a picture on my desk of Toph (from Avatar: the Last Airbender) with Wolverine’s claws emerging from her hands. It’s there to remind me that I can always make my writing more awesome.

    I no longer write stories on Ficly, but I had a great time while I was here. Thanks for all the great stories, the comments, and the collaboration.

    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.

    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.
