Hello From Tyler Anderson

Postby Tyler Anderson » Sun Jul 02, 2006 4:25 pm

Hello. I'm not new to writing but new to this site. I enjoy Writing, Music, Filmmaking, and Reading. I also swim for sport, so that kills the calories that don't get spent in front of the computer writing things. I am a sophmore in high school. My current project(which I just have to convert from longhand to typed) is "The Wendigo Diaries". I hope you all enjoy it when it I post it. Goodbye, say thank-ya.

Hello, Tyler. Wendigo...it sounds Indian, like from Hiawatha or something. :-D

Welcome! I wonder . . . do you know how many calories you burn writing at the computer? As writers we've all got to get our daily exercise in. :)
Is this my reality or yours?

yea, the wendigo is kind of a folk-tale/monster thing, there are all sorts of different stories about it, it was even a villan in a incredible hulk comic, but the basic drift of it is if you eat humen flesh in an act of desperation, you turn into this horrible bigfoot-like monster that is endlessly searching for more human flesh and tries to seduce other pepole into one of them

*raising hand as guy who recalled it from Hulk* Couldn't recall the details, but recalled it vaguely from a comic book... oh and Magic the Gathering cards too I think.
