I'm an ordinary person from a little country in Central Europe - Slovakia. I'm an ex-English major and now I teach English at a language school... which is probably why I feel that my English has been deteriorating lately XD
So now, something about myself...
Usually - optimistic, introvert, daydreaming, open-minded and helpful person. My hobbies include reading, watching movies and TV shows, sometimes drawing... and of course, writing XD
Most of my stories - no wait, almost (?) ALL of them, actually - will include at least two handsome guys kissing, making out or just loving each other. If you don't like it, just flame me as much as you want, but be prepared to take responsibility /evil smile/
If you have something to tell me or ask me or just wanna mail me, please feel free to do so.
Ships I sail (or those who currently rest in the docks, even if they're not on active duty XD)
There are many of them... I like unusual pairings. When some pairing becomes too frequent, usually I start hating it... ;) And I'll come up with some absolutely messed-up pairing as a result XD
anime: Naruto, Beyblade (wrote a few ffs for a friend who is a fan of YuGiOh!, even though I've never seen it myselfXD)
movies/books: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit, Inception
TV series: Teen Wolf, True Blood, Da Vinci's Demons, Hawaii 5-0
comic books: MARVEL universe - though I don't claim to know every character. I'm mostly an Iron Man and Hawkeye fan, with tidbits of X-Men or Avengers thrown in. I have basic knowledge of Batman facts thanks to an obsessed friend, too XD
games: Assassin's Creed, The Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age
IF YOU WANT A STORY WRITTEN FOR YOU, LET ME KNOW. I'm not promising I'll write it for sure, but there's a chance I'll go with it, since I enjoy challenges quite a bit.
SOME THINGS I HATE IN STORIES or a basic way to write well in my opinion
- overuse of cliches. It's okay if there's one or two cliches in, say, ten thousand or more words and the story is otherwise well-written. But if the whole plot is one big cliche, then there're only a very few people who will enjoy it. That means >> If you read lots of good fiction and then write something that's too similar to them, it doesn't make your story good as well...
- misuse of there, they're and their, as well as its/it's and any other elementar spelling and grammar mistake. I'm not a native speaker so it's possible my stories have some grammar issues, especially the earlier ones... but damn, if I, a foreigner, can learn English grammar, there's no way someone who wants to write couldn't. And if you can't, get a good beta.
- sentences that run for whole twelve lines and change the meaning three times in the process. Not that I'm for use of sentences like 'A does something. B says something. C does something' - that's the other unbearable extreme. My point is - there's something in the middle between these two extremes. I don't want to read stories that have two thousand words and only five sentences, and I also don't like to feel like I'm reading a fairy tale for mentally disabled.
- descriptions. Of course, not in general - I'm rather fond of descriptions well-used. But one whole page dedicated to the description of other people around the hero, other insignificant people - that's overdone. And the worst are impersonal, purposeless descriptions usually thrown together with several dozens of cliche sentences like singing birds and shining sun. If you really need to tell us what weather it is, either do so with one or two well-formed sentences, or use some imagination and feeling. What is the hero feeling? What are his/her thoughts? Where is he/she going? What does he/she see and what he thinks of it/what it means for him? What I mean NOT 'sun was shining and birds were singing', BUT 'An intrusive sunray managed to break his defenses and he, never being a fan of tanned skin, cursed, earning a reproachful look of some passersby.' Tell something with the description, what the hero is like etc.
Thanks to all who have reviewed so far and to those who would in the future... THANK YOU A LOT!!
Please, if you add my story to favourites or watch it, of course it makes me happy... but I'd like some feedback too. If you can hit the 'Watch the story' button, surely you can spare five to ten seconds and drop at least one word to me :)
