Author has written 18 stories for Gundam Wing/AC, Shaman King, Avatar: Last Airbender, and Gakuen Alice.
Okay I admit it. I am a very picky reader. I can’t help it. It probably comes from being older and having more life experience than most FF writers. So if any one has received a critique from me that they feel unsettled about, I can only say don’t let it get to you. If anything, it is meant to be a good thing.
You see, I’m notoriously lazy about reviewing. So if you have a story that gets me to put forth the effort and offer constructive criticism, it means I think you have potential and I’m trying to encourage that by pointing out parts that need improvement. Honestly, if it was crap I wouldn’t even bother with a review. Heck, if it’s crap I won’t even get past the first chapter. I also don’t blow sunshine up peoples’ butts so if I say your story is good, it’s good even if I don’t go into long expositions about it. If you want some tips on what I like to see, or hate seeing in stories:
Tips for story writing:
1) BETA READER! I can’t stress this one enough. Especially if English is not your primary language. The greatest idea will easily go down the toilet with bad grammar/spelling/word usage/format. GET A BETA READER!
2) If you are writing cannon (a story that happens in the same time and place of the original) please be respectful of the original creator’s vision.
4) Beware of Homonyms waist/waste, through/threw, Knew/new, to/too, heir/air too many to count.
Hmmm... What to tell you? I'm Canadian, I'm in my thirties, happily married, with two children. Sound boring? Well it probably is, but I'm happy and that's what matters I guess. I have a great job that I will not name because it always make people go 'EWWW! Really?' I will say it involves protecting the environment, technical engineering skills, and sometimes some serious physical labor. Well okay the 12 hr shifts kinda suck.
My pen name is derived from a small joke about my typing skills. With two kids I try to keep my swearing down to a minimum, but I suck at typing. Hence the name. Say "Oh Hell" with an over-exagerrated hill-billy/southern drawl. Okay, so usually my swearing isn't this tame when I spot typos, but this is supposed to be 'G' rated.
