Changed my name back to Jonas Grant, because I couldn't get used to Max Ross.
I'm a cynical, sarcastic and stubborn bastard, but I realize the effort reading and commenting a story requires and, therefore, appreciate reviews in every form and shape. Way I see it, if someone takes the time to tell me I'm a terrible writer, amongst all of the decidedly worst authors floating around, then they think I could actually do better and that thought fills my shrivelled black heart with joy :)
I'm offering translation services French to English, English to French, if anyone needs it.
So, if you're here, it's either because something I wrote blew your mind or made you want to blow mine with a high-powered sniper rifle. No hard feelings either way, I'm used to that kind of stuff. (And as I explained above, appreciate the sentiment in both cases). So why do I write FanFictions if all my characters are OCs and all my stories follow their own independent plots? Because I think no other medium reaches the level of interactivity you get by commenting on a story as it unfolds, speaking directly to the author, whereas, to the writer, being in constant touch with his reader is the best way to improve himself.
Stories I'm working on right now (1=Weekly Update [For one of them, two if time permits, 2=Monthly Update, 3=Don't give up hope, I still remember the main character's name!)

Writing tips (Things I figured out over time and decided to write down for my own benefit and that of anyone seeking what little wisdom this fanfic writer has to offer):
-When writing in first person, you create a claustrophobic environment, it is important to balance out the character's thought with descriptions, snarks and sarcasm help smoothen long descriptions, but you must be careful not all your characters end up with the same personality.
-When writing in third person past tense, always remember that actions speak louder than words; don't say "He did not like elves." Have him comment, at some point, "Filthy elves...". The reader will be all the more shocked and will attribute it to their personality on their own.
-Write believable and likeable characters doing sensical and humanly possible actions, but remember not to make your whole story about boring people doing boring stuff.
-Only way to beat writer's block is to sit your ass in that chair and get writing. Going out for a walk helps, though.
