    The pen is mightier than the sword. How outdated. In the 1900’s, it would have been, “The typewriter is mightier than the machine gun.” But in modern times? “The word processor is mightier than the particle-beam weapon.”

    I play video games, build things with Legos, and try to kid myself into thinking that I’m mature. I love dorking around with computers and I have a strange obsession with hats – nice ones, that is, no baseball caps. My dream is to either become a Masterbuilder or a drummer, and neither seem very close. Such is life.

    Since joining Ficly, I’ve come to realize that I love playing off of other people’s work, reshaping their ideas to form some coherent things. Half my stories come either from challenges or from hitting the “Random Story” button and writing a sequel (I highly recommend this, the things that you’ll find are amazing!).

    Haven’t been around in a while. But that does not mean I stopped writing. I digressed from short stories to an attempt at a full book. 40 page not a bad start I suppose. BUT its time for a break from that and to go back to my roots.

    I have spent much time on grammar this past year as well as much time reading hopefully it will show in my future stories.

    Quote for today:

    “I do feel honour creep upon me, and which is more, a certain rising in my flesh ;”

    -from The Shoemaker’s Holiday by Thomas Dekker (in this work I came across the interesting word gallimafry, which I had not understood before…)

    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.

    I ain’t a writer right now, and I probably wont be one in the future, but I sure as hell enjoy the act of writing. I’ve only just started writing in the past few years, and even then have only produced short stories and shorter stories. I haven’t taken any classes, or learned from any one source, but I read a lot.

    I take from what I read, and learn from the authors on my shelf. They’re the ones who’ve taught me to write, and I’ll never stop reading and learning. My writings are sporadic, my posting of stories even more so, and I don’t ever hope to be published, much less make it a full time job, but I enjoy it. So I guess I won’t ever stop writing either.

    I’m a girl who doesn’t play video games working for a video game company. I was hoodwinked into majoring in philosophy while maintaining an avid interest to marine biology. I plan on going back to school to nurture this interest and turn it into a career. I also plan on getting over my fear of the ocean as I do so.

    I also really like squids. A lot.

    I’m out of my element here, but that’s fine.
    It’s a good place to practice the parts of story telling I love the most, namely world building.
    I like my science fiction and I like my fantasy, but I prefer to keep them separate.
    My style always seems to be overly formatted and abusive toward standard grammar, which will make more sense once you read a story of mine.
    I write in spurts and get inspiration in phrases, so time may be long between submissions, but I’m trying to make a habit of this.
    Feedback of any shape is always greatly appreciated.

    “If people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.”
    —Ludwig Wittgenstein

    My name is Wednesday, and I guess you could say that for the most part that quote personifies me. If there were no silliness in this world I would die.

    However, I guess it’s not all shits and giggles on my side of the pond. Because as much as I’d like, life is not just silliness.

    and to lie sometimes on the grass
    under trees on a summer’s day,
    listening to the murmur of the water,
    or watching the clouds float across the sky
    is by no means a waste of time.

    Charlie K was a single celled organism who had grown on the side of a test tube in an alchemist’s laboratory. His life was a simple one, and Charlie was not happy with it at all.
    One day the Sultan summoned the famous alchemist Yakuul Kon-Zizzi.
    “Zizzi You have spent fifty years and a ton of gold trying to create the elixer of life. Either you will produce it today or you will be executed.”
    Zizzi had no fear because back at the lab, the elixer was complete, waiting to be tested.
    What the alchemist did not take into account was the will of the single celled organism that would be later known as Charlie k.
    The three microns Charlie had to cross to reach the elixer seemed like hundreds of miles.
    Later that evening when the sultan was removing the head of the alchemist, a young boy only one day old felt no regret that the alchemist had to die, because with the help of the philosopher’s stone, Charlie k was born.

    Comments are nice. Criticism, praise, whatever.

    I also write a blog with four other people in addition to my Ficly wanderings.

    I will like you better if you get your tenses straight.

    Jul.08.2010: Back again, I guess. I’ve been avoiding Ficly for some reason. Time to sit down and write again.

    Mar.14.2010: I’m back on Ficly after a long time. Into fullscreen minimalist text editors like Q10 and WriteMonkey right now.

    I’m an Australian student, finishing my final year of high school. I enjoy a good read, and like to try my hand at writing as well, but I never found a great outlet until now! Writing has always been an interest for me, but gaming is my true passion.
