It sure feels like time to update my Profile, it's much shorter now.
First let’s get to particulars Who is SlightlyOffKey?
I’m an engineer who works in the IT world. I’ve been at it a long time an am a partner in a consulting company. It took me years to start writing fiction again and I started with Fanfiction. That led to a very long TBBT Fanfiction called Elliptical Threads. Then I wrote my first original fiction novel call Wandering Home. I’m still writing TBBT Fanfiction but mostly short pieces because I’m working on my second Novel call the Golden Ring Threads. Who knows what the final title will be that is just the project title.
My promise to reviewers, if you leave a comment or review I'll answer it every time, it may take me a day if I'm traveling but I'll answer.
You can follow my blog on twitter @SlightlyOffKey, it has both Fanfiction, Prose and original Fiction as well. You can read all my work and the most finished and edited version on my blog ellipticalthreads dot com.
Answers to Questions I received:
Who is my Beta? Don’t have one I write and edit my own pieces because I prefer to work quickly. I do appreciate critiques of the work and style though and do take advice as well as criticism well, though I may choose to disagree.
How much do I write a day? I got this one a lot when I was writing Elliptical Threads. Professionally and for fun about 10000 words a day, with a 70/30 split. So fiction, prose and fan fiction gets about 3000 words in any given day. There are days I don’t write at all just edit. I publish about 25% of what I write.
Will I write more of the Elliptical Threads? Probably as few add on pieces I’ve really taken that piece as far as a I could.
Do I write things suggested by reviewers? Most assuredly, if you suggest something or ask me to include something I try to see where they fit in. If you have a great story line that you want me to write I’ll try to wrap my head around it.
Do I read others work? I do unless I’m working on a really long piece, Novel length or Novella then I don’t. I’d steal other people’s ideas. I don’t read books at that time either just real boring technical things. It makes me finish what I’m working on. I will collaborate and critique work when people ask though.
Will I ever write a Sheeny piece, I don't know. I've tried to wrap my head around it several times. It would be like having Leonard run off with Amy. Both Amy and Leonard have really strong connections to their intended partners. I couldn't write a Shenny piece unless they were both out of the picture somehow. I've never came up with a solution. But the truth is I never give it much thought.
Quotes: All the quotes, prose are original unless I site the author. Of course I’m writing Fanfiction here so lines from the show will be included.
My intentions: If I write something that makes you angry, horrified, extremely sad, indignant, morally outraged, doubting my sanity, laughed until you pee yourself or generally pissed you off it was exactly my intention, I’m sure you’ll get over it.
