Let's Meet a Writer: nomyai


Name: Doc  ;-)

Work you're most proud of: Under the Solar Flares    Alarms were still blaring and the faint smell of burned electrical wiring was hanging in the air.  If the smoke was hanging in the air, the ventilation system was off line.  Mang’s first reaction was to feel her stomach.  The twins were moving a little, but nothing seemed to be out of place, which was a very good sign.  
    “MOM!” she heard Nicola shouting up the companionway accompanied by the heavy thudding of boots.
    “I am safe, as are the twins, just shaken.  Are you alright?” she shouted back over her shoulder.
    “That’s a load off my mind, I’m ok too, just an enormous headache at the moment.  I’d just secured my Jitney when all hell, oh sorry, broke loose.  The hangar doors won’t close and I had to hand crank the airlock doors.  What happened?” gasping for breath as she entered the Control Room.
    “GRUNMUNDE, can you turn off the alarms, please, my head hurts enough as it is.” concentrating
I wrote this in under 3 hours, quite surprised myself about it, too.

dA goal(s): Learn anything and everything I can about improving my writing and maybe figure out how to draw along the way.

An artist/writer you enjoy on dA: There are so many talented writers and artists here naming less than several hundred would be difficult.
For Artist, my commissionaire, editor (when he has time), and good friend :iconhattonslayden:
For Writer, because her work is fun to read and always thought provoking :iconmensjedezeemeermin:

What do you like to do on dA?Wander around in random searches and see what the rest of us are up too.  There are some fantastically talented folks here.

Favourite Beverage:Good Scotch

Favourite book:"Rogue Ship" by A.E. van Vogt.  Outside of Flash Gordon and Buck Rodgers, in the Sunday Funnies, it's the first SciFi I ever read.  I was about 7 or 8 when I got a hold of it and still have the original copy!

Currently or last book you read:Last book, Volume 1 of "Your Name" or "Kimi no Na wa" (yes, I do like reading manga from time to time, especially what looks like a good romance. ;) )   Currently, "Armed with Cameras" by Peter Maslowski (a history of US combat photographers in World War 2).

Favourite late night snack:A handful of cashew nuts, dry roasted honey, of course. :D

What movie should have a sequel?Humphrey Bogart's "Casablanca".  I've always wondered what happened to Rick and Louise.

What do you do with your free time?What is this "free time" of which you speak?  I don't get very much of that these days, working to much on too many projects at the same time.  Mostly read and daydream when I can.

What's your least favourite chore?Mowing the lawns, yes, plural.  I have to do 5 acres at five different sites around town.  Loading and unloading the riding mower takes too much out of me.

What languages do you speak & how fluently?English and Bad English, both fluently.  I know just enough German, French, Arabic, Thai, and Vietnamese to get myself in serious trouble. :woohoo:

Right now I should be. . .Continuing to install the laminate floor in my nephew’s house

Anything else you'd like to add?:TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, GANG! I've been on a sporadic writing hiatus for the last 2 years because of annoying health problems that might have been preventable if I'd taken better care of myself when I was younger.



Let's Meet a Writer: Stone231


Name: Stone works, but my real name is Samantha.

Work you're most proud of: The Broken Girl and the Broken Boy    Aria Emerson was a broken girl. Her beautiful appearance was merely a shell of all the emptiness inside of her. Her smiles concealed the weight of the sorrow and grief she carried to bed with her every night.
    No other living soul knew how she felt. No one knew she cried herself to sleep each night and woke each morning with the thought, Why couldn’t I have just died last night? Nobody ever took her hand, sat her down, and talked to her about how she was and how her day went. She was always surrounded by people, but she still felt alone. Her only true company were the demons clawing at her, begging her for attention.
    Aria only had one hope left—to die soon. She’d tried everything to make the pain go away. There were drugs, alcohol, and love—or at least one form of it. It all ended the same. When she came off the high of drugs, reality came crashing down on her like an array of bullets forcing her to feel the pain she


dA goal(s):  My only goals are to have fun and build a sense of community with others. <3

An artist/writer you enjoy on dA: :iconshining-scribe: Scribe is a wonderful person and an amazing writer!

What do you like to do on dA? Writing is what I came here for, but I recently got involved in an ARPG :iconthosewhowentmissing:. I am not the best artist but I thoroughly enjoy the group.

Favourite Beverage: Cherry Coke

Favourite book: This is not a fair question. So I'm doing two different ones. Favorite series: The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare. Favorite book not in a series: Falling into Place by Amy Zhang.

Currently or last book you read: Last read (finished two days ago) was This is Where the World Ends by Amy Zhang. I mostly liked it. Currently reading Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare.

Favourite late night snack: Chips Ahoy cookies, the original kind!

What movie should have a sequel? The Lion King is my favorite movie so, of course, I would be happy to see more!

What do you do with your free time? Read, write, and play games on my phone mostly.

What's your least favourite chore?Washing dishes, especially silverware.

What languages do you speak & how fluently? English only. I took five semesters of Spanish in high school and only remember a little bit of vocabulary.

Right now I should be. . . Working, but currently, there is nothing to do!

Anything else you’d like to add? I return llamas :llama:



Let's Meet a Writer: C-R-Christophers


Name: My author name is C.R. Christophers.

Works you're most proud of: Little Love Chapter 2The following chapter takes place before and during the events of the previous chapter
Nathan had a hard time remembering any moment when his life was easy. His mother used to tell him about such a time, but he was too young to remember it himself. He was born underneath the floor of a closet in a small house in Hiddengrove. His parents moved there about 2 years before he was born, and tried to keep their existence a secret from the giant who lived in it. However, one day they were discovered by the younger giant who stayed at the house a few times a month, but he didn’t hurt them. For the longest time, Nathan had no idea why that was, but he assumed that the giants only became dangerous at a certain age.
The boy didn’t tell his father about the Minins who secretly lived in their house. Not only that, but he also frequently helped them out by giving them food and small objects to build a home with. Nathan couldn’t remember any of this because it either happened

I have submitted a few pieces into the gallery, but they are still awaiting approval.  When do the admins usually approve submissions?  Do my submissions not meet certain criteria?

Hello everyone thanks for adding me :D,  I'm writing some kind of novel slightly influenced by Star Wars. These stories as I state every time I write them will mostly be based upon notes/tales told by different characters that will appear throughout their stories which are absolutely different than the SW we typically know. We'll get to know different characters in a more 21st-century world which combines action, drama and romance.

Thanks again for accepting me and see you soon I hope!
