That's just a lyric of my favorite song which I found to be appropriate to a writer's forum...and which I included in my signature. And which I made the title of this thread in an effort to seek non-conformity and originality (and because I could think of nothing better.) Well, hello there. I go by my nickname of Noodle, which I thanklessly obtained due to my love of Spaghetti and all forms of pasta. Naturally my love of noodles drew me to the Pastafarian faith, as you can see from my avatar. I am an economics and political science student at the University of Rochester, where I spend most of my time avoiding doing any actual work. My experiences as a writer go back to when I was about 6 years old. I recently found one of my old stories underneath a desk in my old room, in fact. It consisted of a Baboon (spelled Babboonn...I had a tendency to get carried away with letters,) a valiant Knight, and a Dragon all setting off to defeat an Evil Wizzard. It was about 1 page long. Hopefully my writing has progressed a bit since then, although I did find that story very entertaining when I found it. Perhaps not entertaining for the reasons I would have thought, but oh well. Since then I have participated in NaNoWrimo multiple times (and never gotten past 30K words) and written on various sites for various projects. I tend to write fantasy and science fiction when I write long fiction, and I tend to write very strange things when I write short stories. My favorite author is Terry Pratchett, my favorite book is The Stand by Steven King, my favorite band is the Red Hot Chili Peppers, my favorite cheese is American and my favorite Celebrity is Stephen Colbert. My political views are those of a Classic Liberal, which is a bit like a libertarian but far less annoying and with a distinct lack of tweed jackets. I'm pretty sure that you now know more about me than most of my closest friends. Congratulations! Anyway, I write very frequently, and I hope to post some of my stuff here. My mother is an english teacher, and I think some of her joy in reading other people's writing and helping them with it has passed down to me...so I plan on doing some reviewing as well. Well then. Noodle at your service!
