"Yeah, I'm only on here sporadically as well. That said, though, I still want some nerdfighter friends, and I saw that you're a writer. Do you have a blog?"

"Yes, reading is good. Reading makes us better writers. Do you happen to have AIM? It might be better than commenting back and forth and back and forth... I want to talk about graphic novelling, because that's so jokes."

"I'm fiction-inclined. As in: I could not write a decent poem if you paid me. I've been working at it. Right now I'm working on a sort-of fake memoir type deal. The plot and stuff are under wraps right now, because I'm not sure…"

Nerdfighters

I love being a nerdfighter. Honestly, sometimes I wonder how I got this far without having such a incredible, made-of-awesome community somewhere in my virtual life. Facebook has nothing on the Ning. That said, I usually blog over at my tumblr (http://shelbyiswriting.tumblr.com); but I've decided to start spending some more time here, too.


So, I just wanted to say to my fellow nerdfighters that you guys are so cool. I'm lucky…

Pavement is very very twitch-worthy, what other bands do you consider to be twitch-worthy? I can't exactly make introductions when I'm still at the stage of newbie-lurking atm . . . I've only had contact with like three people so far!

Ahhh iambic pentameter - the domain of the nerdy!

I too really enjoy picking apart performances - it's great if you can see something done more than once. That allows you to gauge audience reactions, slight changes in delivery of lines, how the actors work to convey meaning . . . I also find it easier to put my finger on exactly what an actor is doing physically to portray a certain character trait if I have the benefit of seeing their performance more than once.

I don't have a blog unfortunately . . . I think I fail at being a Nerdfighter by not having a blog or a tumblr or a daily booth or a twitter (apparently I have this other thing called 'a real life', I personally don't see its value). Skype and Facebook yes - oh how terribly mainstream and mundane. How about you? Any mediums of sharing some poetry? ;)

I want to thank you for this conversation. I'm freaking loving it. XD

Hahahah We're writers, we smile upon reading.

That said, I'm glad you put a long answer :)

I write mostly fiction too. I write mostly for graphic novels, or I aspire them to be graphic novels. Screenplays sometimes. And I'm a songwriter, I'm on my third album's worth of songs :)

Oy that was a little long. hah
