Okay, still not entirely sure if I have this right, but here goes nothing.

Sadly, that tends to be my attitude as I fire off most of my little postings.  Sure, every once in a while I feel all inspired and plot out multiple story elements to come.  Most of the time however, I just start writing and watch what develops.  I think it's more fun that way.

My writing has had several phases.  First, was the shock value phase, when I mostly wrote gruesome poetry to test my teachers, mess with their minds, and generally be a little pill.  Then came the wannabe phase; that was all crap.  After that, not surprisingly, came the latent phase when I wrote nothing.  And now I am in my jubulent phase!  Hooray, I've found writing again!

Still, it's a darn good thing I have a day job.

I don't pay a lot of attention to author names, and I haven't been on Protagonize long.  I hope y'all won't mind if I tag a fellow ficlets refugee, uselessness.  He doesn't blather on and on.  He's never trite or mundane.  It's just good, straight-forward storytelling, and I knwo when I click on something by him it will be good and worth the read.

Also, just cause it only seems fair, I think d.f.m. should get to play, just for having started such a love-fest.  Ha ha!  What do you think now that the shoe is on the other horse being led to water with a basket of eggs?

Sadly, I just noticed that uselessness has already been tagged.  Bummer, but that does mean I get to tag Ridcully_Calvert.  He always keeps me guessing, which is a good thing.  And he's yet another ficlets refugee!  Also, I like that there tends to be some variety.  Sometimes it's deep and thoughtful...sometimes it's lighter. 

So there!  And I'm leaving in the stuff about uselessness.

The End
