    Hopefully this doesn't count as advertising. If it does, feel free to delete.

    Anyway, some time last year, I wrote a small short story collection and put it on an e-book self publishing site. Didn't make much profit, so I decided today to drop the price to ABSOLUTELY FREE. Feel free to read it if you'd like to. If you do, please leave me some comment or criticism.

    Aha, I have found your Author page on Facebook! Thank you, copyright info~♪

    About to read, though; it looks pretty good. :3

    EDIT: Finished "Heaven." The description of the darkness Michael wandered through reminded me of the Realm of Darkness and the Dark Margin. : P Good ending, though; quite bittersweet (but mostly sweet). Just started "Johanna;" note that you don't use apostrophes with dates (e.g., instead of 1800's, write 1800s).

    EDIT 2: Finished "Johanna." I like all these rules you've set up for ghosts; it makes it pretty interesting~

    EDIT 3: Finished "A Letter." It's a bit of a cliché, especially with the lampshaded chain messages and stuff, but holy cow that was dark. ._.

    EDIT 4: Finished "Unstable Ground" and DFSGDGHGDFGDFSGDFGFGDSFH ALL OF THE CUTE. I CANNOT HANDLE IT. I HAVE LOST THE ABILITY TO CAN. oh and "awhile" at the beginning should be two words but fdgbsdkfhldfssg. SO CUTE. Good finish after all the melancholy.

    I was wondering who liked my fan page. XD It's been dead for a while, but I'm gonna resurrect it due to my new interest in a project. And thanks for the comments. : D

    Finished the whole thing! It was quite better than I was expecting, even if quite a bit shorter than what I expected. Each story tells what it needs to briefly and succinctly. Kudos to you, tummer. : D

    Personality : I am a little misanthropic, but this is because I am mature for my age and I have to put up with
    people who aren't. I know that's as much a problem outside of High School as in, but I digress. I am given to
    be verbose at times, and this also defines my personality. I am a Hopeless Hero/Romantic and that spills into
    my writing. I like KH Fanfics, but I also do my own writing, and my style is similar to, but I wouldn't dare
    compare myself directly to: Edgar Allan Poe and more Classical writers.

    Literary Arts Specialty : Short Stories, Character Development, Timeline establishment, interpreting symbolism,
    Novels, Music.

    Anything else you'd like to share? : I used to go as BaseSebastian, and I plan on finishing some stories I started
    a long time ago. Don't worry, Base has already been banned and this is my new start. I also used to belong to the
    Writing Family, but it doesn't seem like they exist anymore. This place looks really cool though. :D

    u guys dis thread so dead all the time ;c
    SO fun writing news on my side of the screen: got to meet NIKKY FINNEY the national book award winner last year & she is lovely. If you haven't checked her out, I highly recommend her work. She's got a brutally honest, yet beautiful voice. She's also a great role model and hearing her speak on writing is really wonderful. Since we have a (mostly unused) Skype group and all, would anyone be interested in maybe reading and discussing her work some time? I can give an abridged version of her... philosophy? regarding the writing of poetry which might make for some good discussion, so. :v

    I'm all for this, especially with Spring Break coming up (for me anyway, next week is a gift sent from heaven <3). We could also just talk about writing in general or have some sort of free verse competition.

    idk, just trying to come up with ideas to make this active

    I'm up for it. I'm off this week, so if anyone else is interested...

    Plus, I was thinking that KHV could have its own version of NaNoWriMo (obviously it's the same rules, just specifically for us on the site) and just keep each other motivated to finish the project.

    Sounds good for me also (NOICE ASH IDE SUMO). We can all probably figure out a good time for the weekend during the day tomorrow, and just get everything all ready and set.

    On the idea bits, those sound good! I definitely recommend you bring them up in the Reboot thread as well, just to have a better idea of what people want to see/do with Literate Beans (and I won't have to search multiple threads, lol).
