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.

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.

Take a day off to read this.
Young, starry-eyed teenager trying to reach the whole world through her writing. And is failing rather miserably.
Yeah, I’m Chinese. Not from China but from Singapore. And, no, Singapore is NOT located in the middle of China. Go goggle it.
And enjoy the rest of your day after you finish with it.

Wow. I’ve been gone for awhile. Life has sort of taken over and my writing has withered along with the leaves on the trees. I feel I should have forced the writing when I felt less than inspired, but those days also seemed overwhelming in so many ways, so I stayed away. I think today is the day I would like to dust off the keyboard and begin the journey once more to find and hone my voice. I can only hope that there are some who will stick with me as I make my way back towards the literary world.

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 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.

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 a writer from Northern Ireland who enjoys the works of Neil Gaiman, Diana Wynne Jones, Erin Morgenstern and Laini Taylor. I love to listen to Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers and Of Monsters & Men while I write.

“If people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.”
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.
Cheer Captain of the High Seas in the League of Awesomeness.
‘Cheer’ suggested by ElshaHawk
Named ‘Jae’ by the marvelousness that is Mr.Gabriel
Rest is not idleness,
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.

I like to create curiosity. So, I design. Images. Words. Pixels. Prose. My first client was a surprise. A word of mouth accident. Since then, I’ve spent thousands of hours wireframing, photoshoping, coding, writing, redesigning, positioning, studying, branding, marketing and exploring. I do it for a living now. Marketing & design mostly. I enjoy every minute. Work/life balance? I work. I live. However, the line between the two doesn’t really seem to exist.

I’m making up for not being here as much. Going through mental crisises, physical pain dillemas, emotional distress and school. Anyway, I hope to be posting more and soon.

I wish more readers would comment, or at least rate the story they read. Even negative feedback is better than no feedback.

Arms, legs, the usual.
I value feedback, so feel free to rate my stories with a 1 or a 2. I only ask that you tell me why when you do so, so I can make my next story better.

Izzy, 18. Citizen of the world, performer, writer. The arts are my saving graces, I think. I was originally a member of Ficlets, and now I’m here. Let’s get to know each other.

Beauty is the way lines meet to form a picture, the way everything around me began somewhere in the world and it took so many people, more than we could ever dream of, to get everything in this exact position in space and time. Beauty is an idea becoming a reality, a white flag waving as fighting ceases. Beauty is a smile, whether on the face of someone who has been through more than their fair share of hardship or on the face of an innocent child opening his/her eyes for the first time. Beauty is love, and love is beautiful.

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.
