Author has written 42 stories for Star Wars.
As a fan of the original release of ANH, and a fan of sci-fi fantasy, I used to think Luke Skywalker was the ultimate Jedi.
Ewan McGregor sold me on Obi-Wan Kenobi in RoTS - wry, funny, a good man who wasn't perfect and knew it, but strove for perfection anyway.
I have been writing since creative writing classes in the - gasp, 60's - and recently discovered the joys of on-line boards to indulge in my love of character exploration.
Writing is as much a passion as a joy, for I love the interplay of words. I consider myself someone who delights in stringing together words and does so better than plotting out a story, so I'm more of a "word artist" than a storyteller.
I hope my words bring a smile or tears, depending, to your face.
I am quite appreciative of critiques, for how else can one correct one's weaknesses? But for those who don't know the difference between critique and criticism, let me offer this: a critique points out what works and what does not or an alternate way to present information. It may be a request to "show" not "tell" with a sample of how to accomplish that. It is a way for me to learn and grow as a FAN FIC author.
It is not, however, I "don't like" how you write, you don't include enough action, you have too much dialogue, you write "chick flicks" and Star Wars is not "chick flick" stories, etc. Without presenting a why and how I might fix any shortcomings, you merely come across as someone who, quite frankly, I plan to ignore.
I do not write "action" stories; I write character stories. If you dislike such, you will be happier not to continue reading and seek out stories that you do enjoy.
