Effie's Writing Portfolio-Come and check it out!
« on: December 24, 2017, 05:18:18 AM »
Below are the basics. If you want a nice, friendly introduction (I know I prefer them) then check the spoiler.
Spoiler
Hey! I'm EffulgentFirefly (or Effie, for short if you'd like) and I'm a Canadian teen with an affinity for writing and gaming. I've had a short story published by Polar Expressions Publishing in one of their student contest anthologies, and though it was a couple years back (and it's more than a little cringy), I'm willing to post it as an example if need be. I've just finished the first draft of my young adult/teen fiction novel, and am working on editing that as well as the sequel. Both my parents write (my father being a talented sci-fi/dystopian author in his spare time, and my mother's business revolving around her writing for others), so I guess it's just in my blood.

As for genres, I can write nearly anything other than mystery-it comes out cheesy when I try.  I prefer the ones I'm good at, those being slice of life, non-cheesy romances and obviously youth or teen fiction, as well as sci-fi and fantasy. I'd like to think I'm flexible with what age group I can write in, but I'm a young person, I can only know so much. Even so, I always try my best.

If you're interested or have any thoughts or questions, don't hesitate to comment or message me. I'm open to criticism and advice. And if you want to try and work with me, then don't be shy to ask!

~Effie~

(Pen)Name-Effie Azarra

Age-I'd prefer not say. I'm a teenager attending classes.

Previous works-I've had a couple short stories published, and I have two unedited novels. I've been writing since I can remember, though, and plan on writing until the day I die.

Prefered genres-Almost anything that isn't comedy or mystery. I prefer to write with teens or characters no more than 10 years older than me for obvious reasons, but I can try and be flexible. My favourite is slice of life.

Availability- NOT TAKING REQUESTS/PROJECTS UNTIL JULY
I much prefer passion projects with no deadlines, and even though I can work with firm deadlines, I'm a student, and they can be hard for me to manage. I'd love to help out any artists looking for a writer or someone to help them develop a story, or another writer looking some help or a co-writer too! Feel free to message me or reply here if you're interested, and I'll see what I can do.

~Notes-I'm flexible when it comes to what I'm writing, and though I might not be the most talented writer in the world, I like to think of myself as good at tweaking my plots or writing styles for the person I am writing with or for. If you're an artist who has an idea that you'd like to develop, then I don't mind helping you out. I'm also young, and my skills aren't near that of some people here, but I can only get better through practice. I absolutely love seeing what I write actually drawn out on paper or seeing someone I've helped find their success, and it's one of the best feelings in the world for me, honestly.

*This summer I'm opening myself up to reading requests. I'm very shy when it comes to giving feedback on the forum, and I usually like to have a lot of back and forth with the writer, just to see what they're thinking. It's a little easier for me to do it privately and when someone asks. I might not be the greatest at giving feedback, and I dunno if private reading requests are even a thing here, but PM me regardless if you're interested. The only guidelines I have are to be prepared to tell me how honest or harsh you want me to be, and what exactly you want me to critique (plot, characters, overall story, etc).

I'm too shy to initiate... But I'm open to anyone else doing it. Just tell me if you need to say something :D

For anyone interested, I've opened myself up to reading requests. I don't know if those exist here, but I thought I'd try.
