Hia! You can call me Dripping Ink. I'm 18. I would discribe myself as, creative, ambiguious, ambitious, unique... stubborn I have a VERY open mind and dont get offended easily. Some people say too open minded I have a black and perverted (at times) sense of humor. :D In the best way of course... I'm australian and what I love most about my country are the animals here! Feel free to ask me to read you stories, I shall try to. However, be warned, if I don't like something or think you could improve it in some way I SHALL be telling you :D Stuff I like to see in writing: > Strong female characters. (guys too but girls mainly.) > Good characterisation. - make them real > Characters with inner torments! <3 (massive soft spot for these types.) > Structure in the format of- a) the actual layout of the text (nicely spaced works are more pleasing than stuff that is in massive chuncks.) b) the story line, please be succinct o.O c) and in the scentances, speech and chapters Pet peeves in stories: > Love triangles! >.< just Grrrrrr! >Stories that go nowhere >(this may sound unfair, but.) People who aren't going to upload AT LEAST every two months, in the end you're just hurting yourself as most readeres don't wait half that long for an upload! :/ sad but true > Charaters that are all "woe is me, boo-hoo boo-hoo!" >Too much detail! Kills the mood people, KILLS THE MOOD! > (this isn't exactly in stories, and may be harsh but....) Writers who can't take critisism! I don't mean the abusive critisim aka "your story is so stuipd! blah blah!" but helpful critisism aka- "cool characters but if you used a little more grammer then the story would make more sense!" >(also along the same lines...) writers who say stuff like- my go my writing sucks, its so terrible, people hate me so much... and then have thousands/hundreds of followers just WUT!
