Actually a misnomer. I'm a big rat, big enough to knock kitty cats to their knees. I'm also handsome, humble, and appreciate praise. I’m an amateur writer and am fairly well known on the harsher critique sites. Right now -- it changes over the years -- I’m mainly on Critique Circle and Fanstory.com. I prefer short stories, up to novella length. I’m always open to new sites. I write for the enjoyment, and have a few hundred rodent-oriented stories stored away. I’ve sold a few and given away a few to ezines. I’ve been writing since my human retired about six years ago and took up writing fiction as a cheap hobby. He was having trouble with grammar, so I stepped in to help the stupid idiot. Us guys are, on the average, more intelligent than you guys. Being a virtual rat, I’ve been around a long time, hiding in my human’s mind until needed. I kind'a like it out here in the real world and, besides, I still have to watch the guy. In case anyone is interested, I also have a human toe collection. Not that you have to worry much about disrespecting me, but I've been known to bite a toe or two. He-he, gigglesnort.
