miss posting...?

Yor has a series that is posted as mine?

New name

I want to close my account and reopen it in another name. How do I do this?

Source Code

From the moment I read the synopsis on IMDB, I was intrigued. It was a premise that whilst not unheard of, it had enough differences to make me feel as if this was a new concept and although it's hard to give a review without giving some of the game away, I will only tell you as much about the plot as the trailer, so it won't ruin it for you.


I'm still working out the plot of Spirit Splinters, Part Six, so until I figure out what's going to happen next the new chapter will have to wait. Don't worry, though-- it may not be that long after all. Thanks for reading!

Discourged, but still around

I have found a new word processor and am not having the problems I had before (or at least not at the present). I have added a new short chapter to "Pairie's Children, Back to the West".  I have been discourged because nothing was going right, but hopefully everything is straighten out now.



An Intro

So I finally took the plunge to join. I have no idea how often I'll post, or what stories I'll put up as most of my writing is taken up by writing stories for the RPG I'm a part of.

Amanda's Eyes, Chapter 17 posted

Amanda finds some friends, Ken does an over the top halloween display and we see Kelly starting to understand what she's done.


Am I doing it wrong?

I posted "Side Affects" this morning, and I wonder what I did wrong. It seems to only work in a very wide window, unlike anything I have ever posted. Is my story too long? Did I enter it incorrectly? I need to know before I post the next chapter. Help!!




Happy Thanksgiving everyone

Hope you are all enjoying the holiday.

Amanda's Eyes, Chapter 16 posted

Another short one but with Ken's help Amanda makes an important discovery. More soon.

Knight and Day

June Havens (Cameron Diaz) is making the return trip to Boston when she finds herself entangled in the life of Roy Miller (Tom Cruise).

New help here on Fictioneer

Hi folks.

I just wanted to let you all know that as from now, I shall be helping Joyce with the running of this site, as she is stretched a bit thin and doesn't have the time she would like to devote to the site.

So if you have an issue, rather than PM-ing her, drop me a line and I'll try and sort it out for you.

Thanks chaps and chapesses,


Desperately need advice on story

The pastor in Chapter 2 of "Pairie's Children -- Return to the West" is based on an actual person in Birmingham, Alabama.  What is written about him is not considered extreme. He was a kind minister, always stopping on the street to pray with someone (has even stopped fights that way) and would actually give the clothes off his back to some needy person.

Amanda's Eyes - Chapter 15 posted

This is a short one but I wanted to let people know that I'm still working on the story. This feels like an interlude between major happenings to me. Let me know what you think. As always, comments and corrections appreciated.


Carl Fredrickson (Ed Asner - Lou Grant and more cartoon voices than you can shake a stick at) has fostered a dream and at seventy-eight years of age, is finally going to realise that dream.

I'm new here and I have a question

Hi All,

This may sound rather silly BUT, Why can I not access my "My Inbox"? When I click on it a message pops up saying I do not have access to this function - or some such foolishness.

with love,


I need to read my own stories

I had to change chapter two of "Prairie's Children, Home in Alabama".  Ruth was converted to Christianity in the original "Prairie's Children", so she doesn't need to get saved twice. So, I do need to read my own stories.


I'd heard about this film for ages and due to my long legs and complete dislike of cinemas and their rip-off prices, I eagerly waited for it to come out on DVD.

It was truly worth the wait too.

Publishing houses

I have noticed a few ads on the right side of the Fictioneer site about publishing our work.


Astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder--Stargate SG1, A Kiss before Dying) piloting "Farscape 1" space vessel, is swallowed by a wormhole and hurled millions if not billions of light-years from home into deep space, right in the middle of an intergalactic battle, whereupon, he collides with an alien vessel.

The Men Who Stare At Goats

I'd seen the trailers.

Ewan McGregor and George Clooney as they hit the only rock in a desert full of sand.

I thought the preview was hilarious, but was it just the favourite trick of many film makers as they show you the best bits in the trailers and the rest of the film is only there to stop those prize pieces from bashing into one another?

Isn't that what they did with 'The Breakup' with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston? That was truly crappy.

Well, yes that was what they did in The Breakup, but not in this case.

Amanda's Eyes - Chapter 14 posted

As always, sorry it took so long but I'm not a fast writer or editor and RL is pretty demanding. Appreciate comments and suggestions and promise not to take criticisms and corrections personally.

Planet 51

Imagine a world that is locked in the fifties; white picket fences and a dread fear of being overrun by monstrous aliens hell-bent on eating the brains of the inhabitants - but is not our own.

Forbidden Kingdom

The only film I know of that has Jackie Chan and Jet Li working together and this is brilliant.


After Buffy, Angel and Firefly, I had Josh Whedon on my list of top ten writers and then I saw an article with Eliza Dushku, who played Faith, one of the other slayers then turned up in Tru Calling. This time she'd basically twisted Josh's arm into writing something specifically for her and even stumped up money (presumably) to produce the show.

Star Trek

At last!

This is long overdue I think. It's the old format with a new twist.

We meet Jim Kirk, Bones, Scotty, Uhura and Spock before they even leave the academy and by golly it's a good-un!

I could go on for ages about the plot, but I think the best thing is to leave you all to find out and watch it. That way, I don't give the game away.

Speed Racer

I had no idea what to expect when I first got this.

It's one of those films that for the first fifteen minutes I was totally confused. This was partly because the story seemed to flit from one time-line to another and back again and partly because of the unbelievable visuals.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

In the small town of Swallow Falls - situated just under the 'A' of 'Atlantic', we join young Flint Lockwood as he displays to his young classmates, his invention for curing the issue of untied shoelaces - spray-on shoes! Sadly, these shoes don't come off and Flint becomes the laughing stock of the class; an outcast.

Amanda's Eyes - Chapter 13 posted

I've posted Chapter 13 of Amanda's Eyes. Sorry for the long delay. Again, not as carefully proofed as in the past so if you see errors let me know.

Next chapter should be a little quicker.


This film is a must for those with a need for something thought provoking.

The premise is simple, with Michael Jennings (Ben Affleck), an engineer earning himself lots of money by reverse engineering other companies products and then having his memory of the work he's done 'removed'.
