An Introduction, of sorts.
« on: February 17, 2019, 02:15:53 AM »
Hello lads and ladettes,

I'm an Anglo-Maltese English teacher in China. I dub myself Handsome Foreigner because "Handsome" is the second most common English word I hear from my students. (Their favourite is "Banana", for reasons arcane to me)

I have zero artistic ability. My writing experience is basically a couple of years on pro wrestling RP forums. Most recently I was one of two main writers responsible for matchmaking and producing a weekly "show". Basically somewhere between a script and an extended piece of prose detailing the events of our fictional tv wrestling show, wherein we would decide match results based on whose RPs we found most entertaining during the week.

It was fun while it lasted and I like to tell myself that I benefited from the regular storytelling and character writing challenge. But it was demanding and my moving abroad for this job coincided with the other head writer also finding new employment so we got overloaded.

I can certainly daydream and imagine something tangible coming out of an artist here seeing something in my writing but I'm being realistic. I just want to get back into the swing of writing regularly again. I'm really interested to see how I adapt to the different format so I guess I look forward to your most respectfully savage criticisms.

I thought it the respectful thing to get that out in the open. If this is a concern, don't hesitate to discuss it with me.

Welcome to MR!

We welcome people of all stripes and skill levels, so now worries! What matters is that you put forth an honest effort.

I mean, 'banana' is a super fun word to say, I can see why they love it. Although maybe there's a deeper level to it for them, hard to say.

Don't worry about your VPN. I use one myself (although not to get past the great fire wall), and I'm sure we aren't the only ones. Really, there shouldn't be an issue unless you try starting something shady.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF
