    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 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.

    Story writing: an unfortunate symptom of a leaky brain.

    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.

    Master of the Armory and Chief Nibmaker of Our Strange and Wonderful House. It’s a pleasure to meet you.

    Like many others in this community, I have no qualifications for writing except a head full of ideas and a passion for good storytelling.

    You can find me at shusamchen@gmail.com, or you may bump into me elsewhere on the internet as HSAR.

    Ford’s name isn’t actually Ford, but for the purpose of discussion we’ll assume it is. He’s not published anywhere, not yet. He will probably claim to still be unpublished after the fact so as to keep a hold on his street cred.

    I’m a special education teacher K-5. My job is great. Louisiana is my home, though I’ve been many places. I write for fun. I love taking vacations in the worlds of my imagination. Writing is only second to reading on my fun hobbies list.

    I have very little in the way of a writing education. I know nothing about poetry for instance, and my attempts are probably not in accordance with what a real poet would expect. But it makes me happy to put words together in different ways, including my version of poetry. I wouldn’t turn my nose up at suggestions for “how-to” books though. Thanks for stopping by!
