We had a thread like this back at the Social Forum (located here) and I figured we could continue it here. To echo Star: who are you, and what do you write?

Well, I'm Marian...or Mare or Phouka or...

Anyway, I write poetry mostly, free verse, however, I've written fan fic that was published about 2 decades ago now; an interview that was published by Marvel comics when the FIRST Star Trek movie came out.

I keep saying I'm going to write a novel but it doesn't happen. I am trying to write some short stories about Jubilee, my horse. A writer friend of mine told me that they'd make good kid stories.

Me?  I'm WarHorse.  I'm a horseman.  At other times, I drive trucks.  I used to be a teacher, student, soldier and other stuff.

I write most anything that comes to mind: currently working on the Great American Novel.  I also do some poetry and commentary.

One novel ms is "done" but needs tons of work.  Several others are in parts.  Those are my stairmasters, my exercise machines.  The current ms will be completed and published, one way or another.  It has a Pagan theme. Tongue

I posted a long short on the Beehive forum and am still waiting for Mari to critique it.  And to think I wasted that bribe... Cheesy

Personally I'm of the opinion that all authors are a little wierd.

And I ended up writing these horrible death scenes. They were some of the best stuff I've ever written but I HATED doing it because it really disturbed me that I could come up with this gruesome stuff. Like why is THAT in my head?

My NaNo novella (available as a raw ms pull) was one of them, too.

It starts off as a modern era story, based very loosely on the bar I was working at and the denizens thereof.  I used the people as my tracking, so I could keep track of that many characters and not foul on names, really, with this interesting weirdness about one of them being Fae.  Within short order it had morphed from a rather soap opera set in a bar thing to this demented, twisted tale of murder, kidnapping, rape, torture and then, wraps up with everything going otherworldly.  And yet, it somehow reads well and moves from one point to the next organically. 

The bit about "What is THAT doing in MY head???" is the most disturbing part.  It really just fell out of there, this warped stuff that is quite distressing to think I thought up!

My stories always start out nice and light and then somehow morph into horror or thrillers. I find I sleep better at night if I don't spend too much time wondering why that happens. Wink

I personally love it when that happens.  My first novel started out as nothing but sex but then it morphed to the point where a certain body part was eaten by my main character (too tell the truth, it isn't too much of a leap--now it envolves chewing Undecided).

I can't speak for all writers but I for one am what one would consider weird.  It kinda helps in writing those grusome death scenes.

I wouldn't worry - "weird, on TC" is like "tiger, in jungle" for noticeability.

(Speaking of noticing, I just noticed that there's a tiny bit of my brain that's actually expecting that black eye to clear up, and wondering why it hasn't.)

I'm Gin, and I journal compulsively, write poetry, write a ton of stuff for school, and in my spare time I write fan-fiction because I'm soooo not ready to develop my own characters yet.

Fan-fiction has always been my dirty little secret, like violentsound said, but it's amazing how much my writing has improved for it.  I've always been told I have a "way with words," but I was horrible with characterization, plot, flow...all those things that are pretty important if you want to tell a story.  Writing stories with someone else's characters gave me a low-pressure way to explore and improve on all those things.  Having beta-readers pick over my work taught me a lot, too. Wink 

Anyway, that was a bit of an OT-tangent.  But yeah, I love to write. I'm a writer at heart. Smiley

My name is Ariana, and I write some stuff. Smiley  Namely:

A set of two novels (culture/character/political fantasy).  Long term project, to say the least.
Poems
Short stories, occasionally
Fanfic
My Livejournal
Occasional essays/articles on paganism and gaming.  (Gaming articles published in an online zine, one article on Thelema published in an OTO lodge's publication.)
Roleplaying posts on a forum.  (Which is sadly down right now.)

I've been reluctant to report to this thread, as I can never seem to finish anything I write outside of school. But as I seem to have finally finished a short story, I guess I'll fess up. Cheesy

I'm Nicole. (I used to be "Arachne" on these forums.) I write prose; short stories. I have attempted a fanfic or two in the past. I would like to get into novel-length stuff, but I need to work on being able to finish a single page first. (I've never been published, obviously. Wink )

I like the genre of magical realism. (I don't like to go into all-out fantasy most of the time.) I also do totally realistic stories; however, I have little patience for domestic dramas. (I know there are good ones. I just find them too ubiquitous.)

Hi, I'm Quinn and I write whatever I"m inspired to write lol. Poetry, fantasy fiction, short story fiction, non-fiction articles, product reviews, journal entries, postcards to friends lol. Lately, I've been inspired in poetry. I've been writing an ongoing poem in which each piece is inspired by a Creature Teacher found in nature. Then I follow up the poetry with an article on that totem. It's been very refreshing for me and, hopefully, enjoyable for those who have participated in guessing who the poem is about. Smiley
