My name is Liam Wood. I am eighteen years of age. This blog is for what I learn about writing fiction through reading, writing, or just thinking. Every so often I post short stories trying out a few techniques, or author interviews. I also contribute to the YAvengers blog as Captain America.
My favorite genre is fantasy. My favorite characters are traitors. My favorite books are long, complicated classics like Les Miserables or The Count of Monte Cristo. In fact, any modern book with complicated storylines, shocking plot twists, and good suspense will quickly become one of my favorites. (It’s actually surprising how few books there are that meet those criteria.)
As for this blog, it is for things I learn. That is all. I won’t try to bore you with my personal life, nor will I write many short posts. I prefer to write 800-word-average posts, a few every week. I don’t try to post every day, nor do I try to post on any sort of schedule. However, I will never neglect this blog for long.
My rules for commenting are simple: anyone can comment. I will edit out any profanity I see, and I would prefer if you would keep things clean. Full rules about commenting are posted here. For the grand milestones of commenting awesomeness, I like to award guest posts to whoever wrote the thousandth comment or whatever it happened to be. I don’t award guest posts at other times, and I don’t give guest posts when asked to. However, if you stick around and comment enough, chances are good that you’ll end up with a post here sooner or later. That being said, I will gladly guest post for anyone who asks me to.
This blog is about writing, and it has acquired many followers, more than I ever thought possible. Just remember that I don’t write this blog for you, my readers– you’re just the audience. I write this blog for me. I’ll keep things interesting for the people who aren’t inside my head at the moment, but don’t think that I’m trying to teach you anything. I’m eighteen, for goodness’ sake– I am not an expert at anything. I’m honored that you would read my blog, but I won’t assume superiority. I would keep writing this blog whether I had an audience or not.
But for putting up with me, I sincerely thank you. You guys are awesome.
