Hello Stranger,

I'm Simon, and I like to write short fiction, novels, and the odd poem.

Fiction is fun because telling lies is easier and often more satisfying than telling the truth. Though, having said that, telling too many lies does tend to reveal certain truths.

Movellas is a very competitive platform, what with so many young writers fighting to get their words read by thousands of people. So I want to congratulate and thank you for finding my work amidst the carnage!

I have no set parameters in what type of fiction I write, so don't expect regular doses of the same thing. I'll just say that whatever I write, I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for stopping by, and here's to not being strangers.

    Your two opening lines are just right. It gives the sense that these "lies and "secrets" are ever moving, ever changing, perhaps; but they remain constant. Really great stuff. Liked and favoured! You can read mine if you like; "My Garden". Would love to hear your comments. ;)

    I really like the word "confused"; it summed up the whole poem - cleared things up, so to speak. There is a lot of confusion at bay, and yet the lovers are still together, right? Great stuff. Check mine out if you like. Its called 'My Garden'. Would love any feedback. ;)

    I really liked this. You've got some really great ideas. If i may make a suggestion, however; your opening sentences for The War of Peace and Evil need more punch. Its just a suggestion (take it or leave it) but you might try writing it like this: The birds were chirping, the Sun was shining and a light wind brushed through the trees of The Shanter; its people felt more at peace, now that the war was over. They were light on their feet again, recovering well. Hearts were full of joy. (And start a new paragraph to describe the people)
    - Don't tell people it was a beautiful day - Show them it was a beautiful day! I really like what you've got so far. Keep going!

    You're welcome. I promise you, that's the one piece of advice you're going to hear over and over again during your writing career: Show, don't tell. . . its the best advice! ;) Please, if you have time for a laugh, check out my movella "Love & Loathing" and tell me what you think :)

    I write humour, but I need laughs and if I get no laughs I haven't written humour. Would someone like to read my story, "Love & Loathing". 2 chapters so far. I am posting a new one every week. Would love some comments.
