Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.
A few rules about myself: 08 July 2013 Monday
0 - Why this site has 'guest' or 'Anonymous' reviewing capability, I don't know; I don't like it and I'm not the only writer here who does. I don't like nor appreciate guest reviewers telling me how much they don't like what I've written, yet, I have no way to reply. I don't like taking those kind of 'hits' from people who send uncomplimentary reviews and using profanity. I do like and appreciate reviewers who are registered with this site, and I especially like them if they've written at least one story.
I'm not that good of a writer, but I enjoy writing, at least I try.
1- I write for myself. I write because I thoroughly enjoy it. I'm not making any money from it.
1a - Since these are my plots, and I'm writing them, I'm the hero. I like it that way.
1b - FORMATTING, I use punctuation, quotation marks showing character speech. IF for some reason you don't like my matter of Formatting, read another story. I use proper ways of showing expressions, character speech. IF you find difficulty in the way I write, please refer me to a published story on this site so that I may look at it and possibly use that format. Sometimes, the formatting comes out 'wrong' when it's published here, and I don't know why, but I do try to correct it when I see it.
2 - If you can see an improvement, tell me what it is and re-write part of my story to show what you're saying.
3 - If you don't like my story, go read something else! I don't need, nor want your telling me why you don't like what I write and using bad language.
3a - Don't put down the other readers; It just makes yourself look bad.
4 - If you don't like my stories, WHY are you reading them? Write your own stories if you don't like mine!
5 - Try writing some stories of your own.
6 - Say something nice about what I write, not to 'kiss up' to me but just to say anything nice shows you have manners. I've had a lot of 'reviewers' tell me how much they don't like what I've written, yet, when I go to their profile, many have not written any stories here, or they are anonymous.
7 - The character I identify the most with is Hermione, and secondly, Daphne. I've had two girlfriends who were red heads. My wife is a brunette, so that should tell you something!
8 - Enjoy reading, it makes you comfortable and happy and keeps you and I off the streets and makes us more intelligent. And, we make more friends. Have fun. Be nice. Return all kindnesses and favors.
9 - I'm going to continue writing my own version of fan fiction stories here as long as I'm allowed to publish them here. Mistakes can be found - GET USED TO IT!
A little about myself:
I'm a 63 year old caucasion man, born on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
I've earned two University Degrees: BSBA with two majors and a Mastery in Business with a years' graduate study beyond that. I've taught MicroEconomics for a number of years, which is my favorite course of academic study.
After many years of working, not necessarily teaching full time, I'm now retired and living in my Parents' home that I purchased from their Estate when they both passed on. I'm totally debt free, retired and do what I 'darn well please', which includes a lot of reading (Guess what I read?), gardening, day trips in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Contributing one day a week working for a local Charitable Organization, talking with Family who live within walking distance here next door to me. I used to Fence (Sword Fight - for all you Muggles), I use the Foil. It's like riding a bike - once you learn, you never forget. It's one of my most Favorite Sports!
I've recently re-married and am happy. I now have people in my life who love me, give me hugs and stuff.
I don't judge folks. I keep an open mind and let others love whom they will and how they will, for, afterall, Who am I to judge, for I may be just like the rest (here, you're supposed to read between the lines), deep down inside. I do have a very open mind (Again, read between the lines), and am really grateful for what I've got. I've written one Story here, but it was under another 'Handle' and I've forgotten how to access that account for posting other stories to. I'm NOT computer savy!
