Er....
« on: December 28, 2017, 05:27:42 AM »
Hi! As I totally suck at introducing myself on forums I am going to use the helpful template you have here and see how I go!

Basics

Name/Pen name: Concinnity although I do have another pen name Michael Emerson. Neither are real :)

Age: Um... I honestly can't remember at this time.

State/country: ....Where the matresses come from

Education: Chocolate flavoured

Hobbies and Favorites

What are your hobbies? At the moment writing, although I hope to change that one day. Also reading and watching movies.

What is/are your favorite book(s) and authors? Hahah!!! How long a list do you want then?

What is/are your favorite movie(s) and TV show(s)? Um... again this is a hard one, the list is just too long too pare down to a few.
 Although I think that the ones that are easy picks are NCIS, CSI, Law and Order (all of them), Zapped, Lethal Weapon, The Mentalist,
 Elemental, Sherlock Holmes...


Writing

How long have you been writing? Since I was but a young thing!

What was the first story you wrote that you remember?
-Is it finished?
-Have you ever let anyone read it?
-What genre (romance, fantasy, etc) was it?
It was called Snap Roses and it was a short story about a young man who ended up looking after his mothers snap roses a magical guard bush that has bee eating (and people biting) flowers on it.

It is finished and yes people have read it but I have since lost it due to a computer issue.


Who is your favourite character that you've written about? My current character, a likeable yet very magic proficient half-elf with a wicked sense of humour and a sarcastic side.

What is your favourite fantasy world you've created? Feel free to tell us about it. Actually my favourite is a sci-fi world - although limited due to the fact that it was for a flash fiction piece (under three hundred words). The part I liked best is the spaceship that is like an old Man-o-war ship.

What fantasy project(s) are you currently working on? How's it going in terms of progress? I am at heart a short story writer, But I have decided to branch out and try and write a novel/novella (we will see how long it is). Progress? Slow![/i
]
Do you plan on taking advantage of the beta reading section? I have already, I am open to being a beta reader and have already filled out the little form thing and made a post and everything.

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)

Have you ever participated in NaNoWriMo? I signed up? Nothing else, but I did sign up!

What genres were your NaNos? Fantasy.. duh!

Did you finish the actual story by 50,000 words, or just reach 50,000 words but not be actually finished? Neither?

Are you planning on participating this coming November? Ugh....

Other Stuff

How did you find out about Worldsmyths?
-What made you decide to join?
-Have you told anyone else about it?
Nanowrimo... :/ It was an active fantasy forum! Why wouldn't I join? I will... when I meet other fantasy writers :)

What do you hope Worldsmyths will help you accomplish in terms of your writing goals? Just being a place where maybe I can get help refining the style that I wish to tell my story in, not the style that the forum deems the best style of the year. Which is what was happening on my last forum and why I left.

Thank you! I think that I am all good in the question department for the moment though - the site is very easy to use and find your way around.

Greetings from Romania! I think each country has at least a mattress factory, so... yes, what country are you from?

Welcome!

Hi, I hope you enjoy it here :)

Thank you! I am sure that I will! :)

Greetings from Romania! I think each country has at least a mattress factory, so... yes, what country are you from?

lol it is in reference to something in one of the Hitchhickers Guide to the Galaxy books.

Quote
"Mattresses are friendly, dim-witted, docile creatures capable of speech. They are all called Zem and live in the swamps of Sqornshellous Zeta. Many of them are slaughtered, dried out, and shipped around the galaxy to be slept on by grateful customers, though they do not appear to mind this, one noting that since they are all called Zem they never know which of them have been killed anyway so their concern and grief - "globbering" - is kept to a minimum.

No one really knows what mattresses are meant to gain from life. They live quiet, private lives where they "follop and vollue" to amuse themselves.

Mattresses make a variety of noises that are not supposed to be able to be made by other lifeforms throughout the galaxy, such as willomies, globbers, flurs, and glurries. Those being only a few examples. Mattresses are also capable of doing things floopily, meaning in a floopy manner.

The book Sqornshellous Swamptalk is a dictionary of mattress vocabulary."
- Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy wiki

Quote
“No one really knows what mattresses are meant to gain from their lives either. They are large, friendly, pocket-sprung creatures that live quiet private lives in the marshes of Sqornshellous Zeta. Many of them get caught, slaughtered, dried out, shipped out and slept on. None of them seems to mind this and all of them are called Zem.”
- Douglas Adams, Life, the Universe and Everything

I rather liked the sound of Sqornshellous Zeta so now whenever asked where I am from online I say I am from there. Although if you really want a clearer and more earthly answer I can say where I am not - the UK the USA or Europe. :p
