THE NOTICEBOARD

New on the Board

Dear God.

It's been two short years since I bothered to tailor this section of my home on ff . net. My bio was nauseatingly reminiscent of the time when it was so important to me to outline every detail of my personality in an attempt to sound unique. So here is the short version.

My most recent work here, Zanarkand, Full Circle, won the 2010 Genesis Award for Best FFX Alternate Universe story. If a political thriller set in Spira and juxtaposed with modern Earth society interests you, check it out. I still read bits of it every now and again, in the hopes it will inspire me to write another story of similar length but better quality.

On that score, I *have* started writing again - five pages in to what could fast become an epic ... and by fast, I mean at the pace that life will allow.

I joined this site more than nine years ago. Back in those first five years, I had all the time in the world to write; now with the demands of life and my general timidity in writing anything less than perfect, I don't get around to it nearly as much as perhaps I should. But rest assured, if you come around and read this profile as either one of my longtime fans or somebody who has newly stumbled across my work, I will be back. You can count on it.

See you all around!


THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY

In many ways, I grew up with this site.

My first name is Orion, and I am a 24-year-old guy from Washington State. I am currently attending Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. I will be here for five years, working on a Ph.D. in political science.

Life as it often seems to aids one in journeying down paths that we aren't even aware are there. I am pursuing either a career in teaching or something in politics. I'm fond of critical thinking, politics, and finding ways to express myself, in some sort of way, in writing and in the spoken word.

I surround myself with good people that understand but don't always agree with me. That way they can tactfully keep me honest, haha. I am my greatest critic, as well as my greatest motivator.

If you want to know me better, talk to me. I am quite an open book and am very willing to lend an ear.


As far as the way I review goes . . . I almost always leave reviews only for stories that are complete or by authors I frequent. When I do they will be quite lengthy and encompass the main points and focuses of the story, and how I felt about them. At the end of the review, I rate the story based on a star-rating system. A story is rated out of four stars, not five. If the story is good, you will know. If it is bad, you will also know. I encourage a response to my feedback with some of your own.

CONTACT INFO: With fan-fiction . net's private messaging feature, you can contact me via that, and we can chat or discuss stories, whatever the case may be. I'd love to hear from you.


This about wraps it up. Until next time,

SirGecko
