About Me

Well, my name is Patrick, that's a simple enough start. I'm 21 and I've been writing poetry and short stories since elementary school. If you're lucky I may dig up some old pieces and post them, but for now I'm focusing on the present. I don't write with profanity, not because it offends me but because I see it as a challenge and a way to better my vocabulary. My current project is completely rewriting a story that I wrote my freshman year of high school, I call it "What It Takes"

Feel free to ask questions, bounce ideas off me, or just stop in for a chat... I don't mind the company :)

Also: the "i" key on my keyboard fell off months ago, just felt like sharing

Also Also: I've got a few other books in the works; a true to the old pirate novel (in my opinion nothing published after treasure island quite qualifies) and a delightfully grim yet cheerfully twisted story about a guy obsessed with zombies, who finally gets to fight some.

Allow me to be one of the first to welcome you aboard on the journey of Writers Cafe'. This is a wonderful place to obtain opinions and grow in your writing - as long as you stay clear of the drama that dwells inside electronic lives.

I noticed you have a limited friends list, if I may offer you a bit of advice... In order to get profitable opinions and diverse feedback you may need to add alot of friends to your list.

The system of this place (most people do not even realize) is so: Your new writing is placed on the new writing list and gets pushed down the list with every new write published here. Soon, your writing is so far down the list, it becomes unnoticed and people do not click very often on those.

If, however, you have many "friends" you will have people coming to check your new works out and notice your writing... perhaps click on them and read - if it tickles their fancy, they will review. So, the way to add friends is to go about reading peoples work, reviewing them and then adding them to friends if they are interesting to you.

As with any social circle (human circles NOT omitted), there tends to be rumors, affairs, rumors about affairs, stalking, intimidation, distasteful criticism and many other things that is inappropriate.

So long as you can stick to the projected goal of becoming a writer not a victim of amateur predators you will get the best out of the site.

Enjoy your time here, and feel free to message me anytime.

Great to make your acquaintance,
