When I was seven I went to Ireland to visit family I had never met before. While paddling in a river one day I saw a fairy dancing on the water. Was it my imagination? Yeah... no doubt about it really.

I've grown up since I walked around with my head constantly in the clouds. Now it's only there half the time. ;)

As a writer, I mix my daydreams and sometimes my actual dreams into my writing. Dreams are crazy, right? Why wouldn't you want to exploit that? Here's a fun fact for you: Mary Shelly's 'Frankenstein' started as a dream.

P.S. My profile picture isn't a toilet or a plant pot, it's art! \( 'o' )/

    I don't understand why it took me so long to watch this film because Frankenstein is my favourite novel. But, this movie has inspired quite a few thoughts in my mind. Do I have hidden monsters inside of myself that I'm not aware of yet, like Mary and her Jerk of a Husband? Is my writing coming from myself or preexisting concepts and ideas that I've found from other people? How is Mary Shelly such a bassass? Maybe these are things we all have to ask ourselves sometimes (maybe not the last one).

    I thought of something interesting just now: the strangest book I've ever read is Richard Brautigan's 'Trout Fishing in America,' but I bet there is some books even more crazy out there. If anyone has Read anything as crazy as this book, i will read some of your work and comment on them. What you think?

    These are the rules: I'll tell you what my book is about, and then in the comments you guys will tell me what yours is about. If nobody replies, I'll just assume that my idea sucks. :p

    So basically 'Trout Fishing in America' is about... well, it doesn't really have a conventional plot. Each chapter is random, and if I was to rip all the chapters out, shuffle them, and read them, it wouldn't be much different (like B. S. Johnson's 'Book in a Box'). All the chapters are loosely linked together through the theme of fishing. For example, one day the protagonist is talking to a person called "Trout Fishing in America," and in another chapter he goes to a store to buy a stream to go fishing in. To make things more crazy, the character Trout Fishing has the head of a fish! ('o')

    Anyone think they can beat that? Go for it!

    No I don't mean 'Asking Alexandria' the band, and it's defiantly not a fan-fic. I've just started a story with that title. It'd be really great if people checked it out and tell me what they think because i'm not used to the style of writing I've used with it and maybe some of you are? (^.^)

    Going to summer camp is just about the worst decision Ryan Winters has ever made. Spending three months with a bunch of idiots who think "tru dat" is correct grammar is certainly not his idea of a good...

    Thank you! I’m hoping to finish this sometime soon and hand it off to agents (fingers crossed)

    It needs some editing first though

    I'm in university and have done extra grammar courses. I haven't read all of your story yet, but so far your writing looks fine to me. I'd offer to help edit it for you, but there is a lot I don't know about American grammar, American spelling, and summer camps (I live in England soo...). I hope all goes well for you because I really like this idea. Good luck! (^v^)

    Thank you! I’m actually dyslexic so spelling and grammar is always an extra concern of mine haha I have a grammar software I run everything through, but it’s always best to have an extra pair of eyes, you know? Right now I have a peer group beta reading for me, so we will see how that goes in terms of editing, but hopefully it works out!
