Current Music Obsession:
DO YOU ROLEPLAY?
No, I don't roleplay. I tried it a couple of times, but I could never get into it—namely the mechanics of online roleplaying.
CAN I REQUEST A STORY FROM YOU?
I don't write requests anymore due to being preoccupied with my own projects.
HOW COME YOU DON'T WRITE WITH READER-INSERTS?
Because I enjoy writing with OCs more. I also don't believe that OCs have more chances of becoming a so-called "Mary-Sue" than Reader-Inserts, and just because Reader-Inserts is more popular on a variety of websites, doesn't mean a thing to me, and I won't change my writing to please the masses.
HOW COME YOU DON'T COMMENT ON ANYONE'S STORIES?
It's not absolutely true that I don't comment on anyone's stories, it's just that it's rare for me to do so. I'm not comfortable reviewing people's stories when I don't know them unless they specifically ask for me to review their stories. I question everything and work more like an editor/beta than just a typical reviewer, and more often than not, not a lot of people want my full disclosure. When I'm being honest with my own opinion (something that you definitely don't have to follow in the least), then I'm met with an excuse, "Whoa, way to be harsh! I'm only 13," or met with retaliation, "If you didn't like it, you shouldn't have read it," it's more than irritating (especially when they put somewhere on the story that they want reviews). So, because of this, there are only a few occasions where I'll place a comment:
(1) When I really, really like the story and find no faults (something that has only happened once or twice), or I just can't find anything to dislike about it.
(2) When I know the person and am friends with them. Followers and following don't automatically mean friendship.
(3) When I'm in a group that reviews each other's stories and encourages opinions that aren't 100% enjoyable.
(4) When I'm asked to review their work. If you decide to ask for me to review your work, please read Reasons I Will Not Give Your Story a Chance first. First impressions are a make or break for me, and I reserve the right to stop reading and reviewing at any time.
One of the few times where I left a critique on a story of my own accord, a white knight decided they wanted to disagree with me by telling me "flip you".
I did mention somewhere that I do enjoy quote-collecting, right?
"My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others, and that's nice, too, but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success." — Helen Hayes
"To believe in God or in a guiding force because someone tells you to is the height of stupidity. We are given senses to receive our information within. With our own eyes we see, and with our own skin we feel. With our intelligence, it is intended that we understand. But each person must puzzle it out for himself or herself." — Sophy Burnham
"There's a dark side to each and every human soul. We wish we were Obi-Wan Kenobi, and for the most part we are, but there's a little Darth Vader in all of us. Thing is, this ain't no either or proposition. We're talking about dialectics, the good and the bad merging into us. You can run but you can't hide. My experience? Face the darkness, stare it down. Own it. As brother Nietzsche said, being human is a complicated gig. Give that old dark night of the soul a hug! Howl the eternal yes!" — Stuart Stevens
"What is originality? Undetected plagiarism." — William Ralph Inge
"It is the mind which creates the world about us, and even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours, my heart will never stir to the emotions which yours is touched." — George Gissing
