I must say I sincerely dislike the introductory or the 'About Me' pages. It's difficult enough getting words out in day-to-day conversations, but to have to condense my awesomeness into a tiny post of a few hundred words is nigh impossible. And yet, one must try. I'm T.C. Flar. You can call me T.C. Or Flar. Or Your Most Awesome and Good Looking Highness. Anything will do really, as long as it refers to my magnificent good looks and my awesome antlers. I primarily write fantasy, but read a wide range of books of different kinds. The works of Dickens and Alcott are my favorite. Whatever amazing words our contemporaries might churn out, nothing beats the depth of story-telling that is apparent in books like David Copperfield or An Old Fashioned Girl. Among contemporary authors I like Markus Zusack, Dan Brown, Phillip Pullman, Stephenie Meyer, Orson Scott Card, Terry Pratchett, Anne McCaffrey and a many more. I read Zusack's works recently, namely The Book Thief and I Am The Messenger, and they showed me what great writing really is. While the material itself was pretty good, it's the prose style that really got my attention. Quite riveting. Anyway, like I said, I'm bad at introductions. So let's just get this out of the way and get down to some writing. My pieces and critiques will tell you more about me than I myself ever could.
