Hey there! I'm Kira, there's not much to say about me other than I love anime and write poems more than books, but I still write Fan-fics even though my writing skills are terrible. :3 But hey, I get points for trying right?! I never know what genre to put on my poems though xD, there's no 'Slightly morbid but not gory' category. Anywhoo, about me I guess I write, I draw, I sing, I'm lazy, so the usual.

I hope you like my stuff and thanks for checking my profile out!

I'm a developer with a passion for writing stories.

I prefer writing novels, but I also do short stories. I have a dream of turning my novels into games, oh by the way I already wrote many stories using pen and paper.

Creating stories online is still new to me but I think this is challenging, tests my appeal to readers *chuckles*

Long time planner first time writer. Inspirations behind my writing style would be H. P. Lovecraft, Poe and Algernon Blackwood. I've always had that one story in my head that I wanted to write and as soon as I sit down to do so The Lady of the Green Forest is what came out. I take any and all critique, if you don't like my writing thats perfectly fine, let me know what it is you didn't like at least so I can take note and work on it. I think I was the first actual user to publish a chapter on this site and I can't wait to meet the community as it grows.

If you want comments, you should enable the copy feature.  This permits the reviewer to offer examples from the text of the problem she is discussing. 

========

I live in California and I tend to use American grammatical conventions; yes, some British style/vocabulary creeps in but often I'm not consciously inserting them.

I cannot enjoy poorly written, ungrammatical text.  I tend to give a story a chance, and if I wince too often, I stop reading it. 

So since I can make no sense of the rating and reviewing systems, I just review on a chapter by chapter basis.  No stars, just comments. 

"...read some published novels, and try telling me you don't see them use some of the same comma placement and capitalization..."  -- I do see that, but I don't accept them, nor am I likely to imitate such practices.  Publishing firms don't have grammar books:  they have style books.  The purpose of a style book is conformity, not correctness.   The Chicago Manual of Style is a good example.  Grammar books offer advice on --yes-- grammar..  Failing your own copy of Eats Shoots and Leaves or The Transitive Vampire or Woe is I  there are some on-line sites.  The Purdue OWL is one.  For specific topics check out:  http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?133858-Dialog-Punctuation-and-Capitalization  under Syntax and Grammar; Brians Errors is an amusing site.    And of course, there is the lemming comment:  Just because X does Y doesn't mean you should.

Writing has been a hobby of mine that I enjoy. I love the Fantasy genre and using my imagination. As much as I write, I typically never share my work with anyone, so I am giving this a try. I would love feedback and any comments that may improve my skills as a writer.

My first project is a series called Chaotic Nights. I have been working on it for many years. It started out as an rp between myself and a few friends and with their permission I edited and converted the story into a novel version. Enjoy!
