Just a note in case anyone else still logs on here... I'm going to continue uploading writings (when they happen) to this site, rather than the shiny new one. I use several other writing sites so if I need feedback/commu
Felt I should probably update you guys on my doings:
Still not able to really get back on here reguarly, although I do check in for a few minutes whenever I get the chance, so if there's anything urgent or you just feel like dropping me a line just leave a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can :)
Things have quietened down since the funeral but life is still very shaken up, and we're all having trouble getting back on track.
My family escaped for a week at the coast but now we're back and trying to drag ourselves through work/uni/schoo
Sorry to all those who are waiting on replies to messages, updates or entries to contests, or just a general appearance from me! I'm available quite often on msn at hypochondriac_
Oh, and as always to all those Elftowners, ET's ezine The Town Herald@wiki is looking for any guest articles, fiction, reviews, drawings, whatever. The current working-theme is Arabian Nights and there's no forseeable release date at the moment as it's waiting on me. If you're interested check out the ET wiki or contact me :)
I just needed to say, if any of yall are discovering you're pregnant right about now, I will bang my head on the desk :P
In the past 2 months more than half of my friends have announced pregnancy. This includes friends who've moved away, or dropped out of contact. This includes more than half the people I've ever met in my life. It's insane. Seriously, I was counting, when I realised it was a bit odd, and got to over 60. Which is.... insane. So maybe not half exactly, but christ. That is a LOT of love. Worldwide too. Anyone else thinking aliens? :P
You guys make my days complete ;)
You might not be very active, talkative, polished or present, but among your writings here, and those at elfwood wyvern's, lemonfingers, assorted e-books and short stories and blogs, you give me joy without ever making me brave the freezing cold (Australian - so really it's quite warm) Winter to venture out to the library :P
I've been having so much fun reading through so, so many random stories, that I definitely recommend it! You may have to trawl your way through a bunch of barely readable, unspellchecked swillish poetry written by emo 11 year old who cut themselves and hate everything, but every little while you're bound to find something really enjoyable. I would never even look at some of these genres in a bookstore or library, but I find myself reading gothic horror, erotica, stream of consciousness, humour, philosophy... whatever. I love it, and I wanted to say thankye :3
Phwoar! Tired! Hungry! More Tired!
I'm at that stage of exhaustion where you always ram your shoulders into door-jams because you know you're about to walk into a wall but you just don't have the energy to avoid it entirely ;)
But anyways, the reason I'm writing in here at all is this:
The other day I noticed that the "ratings" system goes largely un-used.
I personally would love to see even that small feedback on my work!
Some may not like a system that "ranks" work, but hell, some may not like that we only comment on some of the pieces we read, or that 1 entry will always win against the others in contests ;)
I'm here to get as much feedback on my work as possible, so if from now on everyone of you who actually bothers reading my pieces takes a few seconds to fill in the "rating" slot up the top of each writing, I would be very, very greatful :D
