A Story a Day keeps the Procrastination at Bay

Okay, so perhaps a story a day is asking too much, but let's try and do one a week. I'll combat my procrastination by trying to follow a piece of advice that someone like me really should follow: To write the story before editing it. It doesn't matter if the first draft is bad because that is just the mould, it can be reshaped a hundred times over if necessary. I do not have to edit every damned word until the story is on the page, or the screen. 

 

So screw Word, I'm going to try and type the stories straight onto this site. Wish me luck!

Profile Information

Hello, I'm Obscure. Feel free to check out my work!

 

I mainly write horror, usually with subgenres of sci-fi and fantasy.

My favourite part of writing is consuming the reader into my stories and giving them a problem to work out. I am quite an inquisitive person and I find nothing more frustrating than not understanding something. I try to stay away from Quantum Mechanics. Anyway, as such, I love solving problems. These are not necessarily puzzles from a book, and usually entail the psyche of the mind. I am the guy that sits quietly when watching a film, trying to work out 'who done it' and 'who's going to die' and 'what is lurking behind that corner'. You can be sure there will be a twist at the end of my story, and I hope to either catch you off-guard, or at least satisfy you knowing you worked out the twist before the reveal. 

 

I enjoy other hobbies, but you don't care about them. Suffice to say they are usually practical or creative, and, better still, a combination of the two. I love psychology and philosophy. I dabble in the other sciences too, but it is more to the effect of 'Wow, that's incredible, isn't that incredible!' rather than 'I understand'.

 

If you ask me to read your work and give feedback, I kindly ask that you return the favour. Most of us are on here to improve, and without knowing what we are doing right/wrong, that is rather hard to do!

 

Happy writing and reading!
