About

What is there to say? There's so much and I don't want to bore anyone.

I'm a 26 year old writer working on getting published. I write primarily fantasy, with some thriller/chiller material as well. I share my life with a dog, cat, fish, mountain horned dragon named Norbert, and a small army of land hermit crabs.

I love the works of Terry Pratchett, J. K. Rowling, C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. I read children's books because they're far less concerned with being sophisticated than most adult fiction, although I love Tanya Huff's Keeper trilogy.

When I'm not on my computer, I write, read, tell fortunes professionally, hunt ghosts, and watch terrible television like Paranormal State (It's so awful, I love it!).

Pouncequick's Ponderings

As an English MA student, I read a great deal and have to think about what I read in detail. Doing so has given me a unique ability to apply the same thought processes to life in general. This journal will be a record of my musings and thoughts o

Thank you for voting and commenting on my story. I also wanted to say that the reason why it was rushed was that it's a story for english and it couldn't be very long. Also, the introduction and conclusion were in there because my teacher wanted there to be ones like thsoe. I don't know why. Other than that waht did u think of the story?

Looks like we have the same goal! But what a hard goal to keep, eh? The hardest part for me was just choosing what story to continue, amongst the many, many, MANY possibilities before me. I kinda sorta compromised- I'm working on one called Moonfang, but when I get bored with that I take a break and write a couple chapters of something else, then I go back and write more Moonfang. To my shock, this actually seems to be working so far! Of course, those would be the operative words, wouldn't they. SO FAR.

That's a good way to look at it. wink
So, are you working on anything else? Besides Suffer the Little Children?

Well, we were having an Eragon(book) vs. Eragon(movie) discussion in the Literate forum of The Gaia Grammar Guild, so I thought I'd ask. If it makes you feel better, the general consensus was that the movie was awful and the book was good, so don't judge by the movie!
And I completely agree, I hate not finishing a book. Anyone who knows me well knows that when they ask me about a book and I say "Oh, yeah, I didn't finish that one." it might not be the best idea to keep asking me questions about it. I probably blocked it from my memory. Sadly, this goes for the Silmaril as well, which I really feel that I ought to give another try, since it IS by Tolkein and all. I just couldn't get past the first twenty or so chapters, they were so.... so... meh.
Sadly, that one word is the only perfect expression of my feelings that I can think of right now. Is that even a word? Meh.

I'll add that to the list of books I want/need to read in the near future. The list is ENDLESS, which, in a way, is the greatest blessing any one person can ever be given, as well as the greatest curse.
Are you familiar with the Inheritance Cycle? Eragon, Eldest, and Brisingir?

Man, am I jealous- I need to get my hands on some of his other things! Did you know he's been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's? And yet plenty of idiots are allowed long lives in which to screw up the world.

I am such a fan of Terry Pratchett! I've just read "A Hat Full Of Sky", "The Wee Free Men", and "Wintersmith", though. Are those the books you were referencing, or have you read some of his other things?
