How to steal candy from unsuspecting forumites.. (1 Viewer)

G'day... I be Amanda Lemmer... although, that will be changing soon.. yay.. how fun is getting married?

Anywho... I'm an avid word doodler. I have started so many pieces in my short life... in years(19) and physicality(1.49meters) that its impossible to count(I believe this insanity to be a good sign) ... back to the point.. I have recently decided to knuckle down and create my very own finished manuscript.. thats right folks... a WHOLE book. Of course, by the time it's published the name Amanda Lemmer will not be on the cover.. but this is besides the point... unless of course I feel like keeping the maiden name.. Amanda Acton has a nice ring to it as well tho... OH GAWD A PUN!

I even made a plan.. and story line.. and everything.. woah... and then I came to a shocking conclusion.. the writing... this is the "easy" part... its getting a publisher to like the work and go, "Heck, yeah, why not chuck all our hard earned cash into fulfilling the life dreams of a starving young writer we've never heard of before."

I figured that to prevent that horrible thought from getting me down, i need a base of motivational people to draw energy from.

So hurry up and motivate me damnit!

pssst... if you're wondering about the advice on candy thievery... check your pockets... :wink:

<throws a candy wrapper in the bin and smiles>


Right you are... doodling can be found Here: CrazyConfuzing on deviantART amidst my attempts at digital art.

Published works can be found Here: Reporter.co.za ... it makes me sad that its only one place, but its still a place :)

Hi, welcome, blah blah blah. Now get to writing! I mean now! (in my best drill instructor/Sam Kineson voice) - motivated yet?


p.s., that's why I always carry poisoned candy. Want the antidote -- then write more!!!!
You have learned much, grasshopper. Always eat the evidence when you can.

... Now now, statements like these have the very likely possibility of leading to cannibalism...

Poisoned candy? Antidotes? BUWAHAHAHA! But I have secret magical powers that make me immune to toxic/deadly/etc etc substances.

Curiosity killed the cat... but it made the starving wannabe a hardcore best selling novelist... :wink:

Trying to resist the urge to throw in some stuff about the ancient pendant that cancels out the magic powers blah ... blah ... blah. Hey I never said I was doing a good job of resisting, just trying.
hehe, Nah, the wedding is faaar easier than the book. I'm going very small scale, just close family... parents and siblings.. Oh, and the priest might need to be there as well. I'm not one for big elaborate celebrations :)

And Dare I mention I have a wolf familiar that snacks on ancient pendants thus rendering them useless?


Well.....Howdy, and welcome to this writingforums things, kind of strange saying welcome to it when i'm totally new myself.....And congrats on getting married, and good luck with the book, i'd like to write a book myself, I just.....Well I don't know.....Maybe I should just do it........Yeah......Nice meeting you......

Watch out for the yellow eyes.

Welcome AL soon to be AA - I wonder if that's a sign? ;)
My wolf tastes like sweet and sour pork actually... I snack on his fur during the lean times...

And yes... addicts around the world will be congregating in my name.. aren't I special? :p
