I'm a furry writer and therian who tends to write short, flash fiction type stories in the horror, science fiction, or fantasy genres. There are often scientific, metaphysical, or magical overtones to my stuff, as well as animal themes and characters.

    Older and Better!

    It's good that "under eighteens" are writing, and more power to them...no wait, they have more than enough power in American society. You don't have to visit many message boards to experience the appalling quality of writing that's out there on the Internet; clearly there's a crying need for practiced and experienced writers. Yet we who are over eighteen and write shouldn't have to apologize for either fact. It goes without saying that you spend most of your life being "older," and let's be proud of the fact that we've attained adulthood. Maybe we can even begin the slow process of taking the Internet back from the young and shallow!

    I'm only eighteen and not that old, but I have grown a little annoyed with the younger on here and other writing sites.

    I can appreciate younger people having a space to write but all they seem to write about is One Direction! There isn't very much creativity there! Variety seems to be unusual!

    Same here, I'm eighteen, but even when I was thirteen I was writing my own stories, usually fantasy or sci-fi. I never resorted to writing fan-fiction. The number of talented writers aren't many compared to the number of braindead One Direction zombies on this site. There are some good writers here who are in the 13-16 age group, and I interact with them, but they're just a few in number.

    Anthropomorphic Story Writers

    5 years agoReply
    I guess that writers of stories about anthropomorphic animals or even stories with such characters will always be a kind of permanent minority in the writing community. I know that for years I wrote just for the furry community, posting stories only on "furry" websites where I could usually count on a small but enthusiastic readership. The trouble there was that they too had expectations, and wanted the more extreme stuff, specifically stuff with sex and violence. The more of that I could pack in, the happier they were!

    While I can and have written for such an audience, the problem was that the stuff I was often the most artistically satisfied with the fans didn't really want to read! I've written some really nice "G" and "PG" things that drew only about a dozen reads whereas extreme content stories packed the readers in!

    Now I like sex and violence as much as the next guy, but not all the time...so I came here in hopes of finding a broader audience of sci fi, fantasy, and horror readers who while not furries might at least tolerate animal themes and characters. So far I've been pleasantly surprised. Can anyone else relate to what I'm saying?

    A great beginning! I almost feel like I'm starting one of Anne Rice's "Vampire Chronicles!"

    "I never thought I would walk this world for a century, let alone fifty..." This is the story of Danté Ombraspada. One of the oldest vampires still walking this world, and oldest of the "Half-Bloods"....

    Thanks :) I've only read one of them. I'm unsure whether it being like "Vampire Chronicles" is good or bad :/ Nonetheless, thanks very much :)

    Inside every aerospace engineer and NASA scientist continues to exist the ten to twelve year old boy who found the prospect of space travel and other planets thrilling. It was wonderful to see televised images of NASA workers hugging one another and clapping each other on the back following the successful landing of the Curiosity rover on the Martian surface. Their boyish enthusiasm was reflected in such comments as, "This is totally cool!," and "This rocks!". Well done, NASA!

    If you spend any amount of time visiting message boards or communities on the Internet, you may come away sobered by the number of people who struggle to spell common words, or whose meaning is lost due to an apparent inability to formulate a coherent sentence. I'm no grammar Nazi, but basic writing skills seem to more rare than might be thought! Celebrate your Literacy!
