What is this place upon which I’ve stumbled?
www.albatrosbits.com is a place for me to host my creative stuff and
interact with people who like or make creative stuff (that's you).
For the time being, it's essentially dedicated to hosting my
The Murloc is Lonely. I envision it growing into a community
of writers and readers, of creative plotters and prose-crafters coming together to
foment and ferment ideas.
I've got forums (that's where the community
happens), so if you've got plot ideas you want to bounce around, stuff
you want critiqued, or any old thing to say, hit that up.
Albatros is me. It was sort of an accidentally-acquired
pseudonym, but I like it and I'm sticking with it. For your
reference, this is an
albatross (the double-S kind). They were made famous by pooping on things, and by
Samuel Taylor Coleridge's excellent and ethereal poem,
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
The Bits bit refers to the annoyingly poetic notion that what I share
here online are pieces of myself, little bits of my own creation.
Plus, www.albatros.com was already
taken. (Check it out, it's classy.)
My website does not refer to
chunks of seabird flesh.
What about the Murloc story?
Have a look at its
Table of Contents. There's a story
F.A.Q. in the appendices with all kinds of quiestions which may or may not be asked frequently.
What's this about Donating?
I spend a lot of time working on this site and writing my story, and the site itself costs money to run. If you want to help out by donating, that would definitely make my day. If you don't, that's okay too.
Can I write you?
You answered your own question, sailor. I check the forums regularly, as well.
Your website is awesome!
Thanks! This question used to read “Your website is bland”, but then I re-did it, and now I think
it looks awesome. The beautiful sketch of an albatross which now graces it, incidentally, was drawn
for me by my dear friend Meredith, whose black and tan banner you can find towards the bottom
of this very page. (Thanks again to
Sheeley for the design tips, and for
teaching me DIV tags and PHP and CSS and putting up with
me asking a million questions about them.)
Are these questions actually frequently asked?
They sure should be.
