Good name for an all-new superhero team (particularly gritty setting)?

What the hell, I made this questionnaire, I'll answer the questions.

1.First off, what do you do on this website, exactly?

I write short stories and the occasional bad poetry piece.

2.Seriously? Why would you do that?

To get praise from other people like me, obviously.

3.Okay, whatever you say pal. Why do that here and not professionally?

Trust me, I am diligently working to find some chump to buy my crap.

4.Huh. For writers: make up a relatively coherent sentence you're positive no one has ever said before. For visual artists: Sketch something you're positive no one has ever sketched before.

Three minutes into the orgasm, I realized the why and how and where of sapience, and that if I didn't pull out soon, my brain was going to paint the walls an atrocious shade of magenta.

5.You're a very bizarre individual, y'know that?

No, it's you who's fucked-up.

6.What's one work you really want to do, but aren't sure how to do it yet?

I think I began the climax to my epic Threesome, or: How to Determine the Nature of Consciousness Through Premarital Sex by answering question four. Beyond that, I have no idea what the plot is, who the characters are, where and when it takes place, or how I'll cobble it all together.

7.Yeah I don't know how anyone would manage that, either. Ever had an injury that stopped you from practising your craft?

Broken my wrist twice, and for the first two weeks while my knee was destroyed I was so fucked-up on painkillers I couldn't do much more than loll around.

8.What inspires you? I mean really makes you want to perform your art?

It's funny that I wrote that question, since I know it's bullshit. Nobody knows, man. It just hits you. You can try to explain it away as a need for posterity or as a hobby or blibbity blah blah, but you really have no idea. One day you just start creating something, and you're fucked after that.

9.On that same sort of track, are there any particular influences, such as musicians, artists, writers, or events that you put into your work?

Tom Waits, Jacek Yerka, Harlan Ellison, and any of the thousands of times I've embarrassed myself doing something so stupid, evil, or deranged that I can't talk about it with another human being.

10.So, assuming you haven't already told me you just do this for the hell of it, do you plan on living off your particular trade?

Oh yeah. I write because I enjoy it, obviously, but I'd much rather live off stories than back-breaking labor. Or even back-straining labor. Or labor of any kind, come to think of it.

11.Do you drink, or use any drugs? If so, do they help you with your craft?

I drink heavily, and on occasion dabble in a few psychoactive substances.

12.What's the most unfortunate name you can think of for a child, male or female?

Irving. Or maybe Harla. I'm not sure.

A drunk Albertan, I'm a writer. I write stuff, and shit, and other things. Feedback is always appreciated, positive or negative.

I've got a tumblr.

Hey, Jake, a belated welcome to the group!

I became an admin here recently, and I'm catching up on things. Details about a Challenge/contest thing should be up by the 18th of April.

Regards, Michael

Thanks so much for the favorite on my Elevator piece.  It is really very much appreciated.:)
My pleasure. I think I forgot to give you a watch. I'll go rectify that now.

Hello.  Sorry to bother you but I am the moderator of a relatively new group dedicated to Original Literature and wondered if you would be interested in joining?


As a member you are also more than welcome to submit your written work to our gallery.  We currently only have about a 200 members but we're gradually growing larger each day.  We are also currently running a poetry contest and will be following it up with a flash fiction contest in the New Year!

I hope that you will consider joining us soon.  If not, I apologise for taking up your wall space ;-)
Sure thing, I just submitted a request. Thanks for telling me about your group.
