Default Hello from North Carolina!


Hello; I come bearing gifts of imaginary cookies!

In all seriousness though I love writing, though admittedly I've only ever finished a few short stories and one Dungeons and Dragons campaign thanks to a chronic procrastination problem.

My real name Is Nicholas, and I'm a high school student hoping to hone my craft, and eventually-- maybe-- get better at it. I consider myself a music buff, especially when it comes to metal or jazz/swing.

My biggest influences in writing are probably H.P. Lovecraft, Douglas Adams, and Joseph Heller, though I'll probably never be that good.

Thank you for your time, and in case I don't see you again: Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight!

("...welcome to writersbeats and to whomever might be upon it today too..." went the goblin not quite sure if he should mention that most probably meant those writertypes and pauperpoets again, restarting "...no they're not a bad lot really, it's just that they're not the kind of solution you seek while having a calamity, feeling suicidal, or just trying to fathom the future of america today, which is the same thing I might add...", and with that the goblin brushed his reservations aside and just held out his hand in a welcoming gesture, saying "...no I envy you your youth, but if it's ok with you I'd rather partake in some of that coffee there, and those imaginary biscuits too if I may, where all but everything here is imaginary anyway, yes it's just a virtual reality for as far as the eye can see, but then again what's another word for "virtual reality" if not "fiction" now, thus you and I are practitioners of fiction aren't we, and all you have to do my dear human is pull those readers towards your pen by way of those posts of yours, yes it's that simple even if simple is not always that easy, for the words are as if steps of the plot, they have to be both credible continuous and footsure...", to which the goblin then dunked the biscuit gently into his coffee before carefully lifting it to his lips in some pliant smile of expectation)

Ha! I was fiddling with the font size(because I'm pretty blind) and couldn't get it back to normal size. For someone who was raised with modern technology I'm pretty incomptent with it at times :P

BP has a point. You may have too much energy for a mellow place like North Carolina. Stay sharp, they may be giving you the bum's rush across the state line if your not careful.
