Writing!

Postby Marvin D. » Wed Oct 30, 2013 4:54 pm

So yes. I don't know if this will actually work, but hey, what's the worse that could happen?

Most of you know that I enjoy writing, and have probably at one point or another read some of my reviews that I've posted on my blog The AIO Fan's Life (www.theaiofanslife.jigsy.com). I've sometimes posted some stuff here on the ToO as well. I've provided the links to some of them:
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=33521
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=33200
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=32294
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=30680
I also have my own blog where I frequently put up various things I've wrote. You can find that at http://www.joshthenormal.wordpress.com

So basically, you guys can give me an idea that you want written, and I'll do it. .assuming I've got the time :p Here are some stipulations:
1. I really don't write much action. If you give me a plot like, "Two twelve-year-olds break into a scientist's headquarters and steal his top-secret invention," I'm not going to do it. I stick mostly to more meaningful (aka, sometimes boring), real-life, fiction pieces. (Read: contemporary/literary non-genre fiction).
2. You can choose what perspective you want it told in: 1st or 3rd person, past or present. If you don't know which one you want, I'll write how I see fit.
3. I'll try to get it to you in no later than two weeks. Be patient.
4. I do only short stories and the occasional haiku and cinquain, and the maximum word count for stories is 5,000. The longer, the more time it will take, obviously.

Now, for prices. These aren't set prices, mind you. I am flexible.

100, 200, and 250 words (Word Economy): $8-15
251-500 words: $16-$25
501-1,000 words: $26-55
1,001-5,000: $56-300

Haiku*: $7
Cinquain*: $10

I should also add that I don't do homework assignements, in case that there's someone already scheming out there ;)

Let's see if this thing works.

*If you don't know what a haiku or cinquain is, Google it. I reserve the right to not complete a piece of poetry if I don't feel like it, mainly because I'm not very good at it.

I'll see what I can do. Frankly, if I were to continue it, it'd probably turn into a novellete/novel about say, a shapeshifter or kidnapper. So. .

Would $500 help the matter? (Yes, this is bribery.) O:)

Behind the smiling, innocent facade of Sapphire lies a calculating, shrewd woman \:D/

Like I said, I'll *try* to write something. Obviously, it'll take some time ;)

But can she share it? Or can I buy the rights to read it?
