tiger, tiger, burning bright

So I like being different.

Anywho, I stumbled onto this site after stumbling onto Gavin's Diggory Franklin, after stumbling onto other serials and so on and so forth. I read constantly and write my own stories as well. Fantasy mostly, but that ranges from modern realistic to medieval to completely new worlds. My style is usually light, but can be sarcastic and satirical. One thing I like to do is take familiar tales and turn them on their heads. I sometimes sketch as well.

I'm just starting to read the Intimate History (still on Book One, so no spoilers!) but I'm enjoying, so far.

And your response when Ellika dies early in book 2 will be -priceless.-

You have so much joy ahead of you. No matter how much pleasure one gets from returning to the source again, one's first time is special.

I hope you get as much out of this story as I have. Enjoy the ride, and know that love awaits.

Light and laughter,

You're in for quite the ride. One of my biggest complaints about really good books is that I always remember them so well I can't really re-read them. And sometimes I really wish I could!

You'll like it, even when you find out Teacher is really evil, and Sedra's a robot.

You're as bad as TheBoy! Well, no, you're not. No one's as bad as TheBoy. Wink

If Tiger has lived long enough to join us, they obviously aren't that curious, because we all know what that does to cats. And while the first post was plausible enough to be suspicious, now that things have wandered into robotics I think they'll smell something fishy.

And have it for supper.

I *am* hungry...

On another subject, ever since I've started reading online serals, I've been tempted to try my own. I even have the first few chapters of a story written with this venue in mind. Unfortunately I don't have a clue where to begin, although this digital novelists thing is very intriguing... *hint* MeiLin, advice please? ^^" *hint*

Write a few chapters and send it around to friends you know will give you the honest truth, not an "Oh, sweetie, that's awesome!" Then I suggest you try putting it up at LJ or some such until you're sure you want to commit to it. And then when you know you're really serious, come talk to me about Digital Novelists.

I actually have. No one's read this particular story yet because it's so new, but I've had another up on LJ for close to a year. And I have several other ideas floating around. I'm almost positive I want to get my hand in. On the other hand, I know I'm painfully new at this and should probably not jump in with both feet.

I just wanted to make my thoughts known and see what people would say. Not expecting a miracle.

Jumping in with both feet is the only way to get thoroughly wet. Smile I had no idea what I was doing, and yet, here I am.

I love finding posts where somebody's already asked my question and gotten an answer. Thanks for the advice on starting an online serial from me too, Mei. I've already had a nose around Digital Novelists and you can be sure if I ever get serious about this, you'll be hearing from me Smile
