Trifecta: Friday Check-In

I'm participating in a blog writing challenge thing in an attempt to better my writing. This is the part where they ask you about yourself and have you post it for the entire group to read. Everyone attempts to come across as unique and profound, but in the end everyone sounds about the same. I've redone this fourteen thousand times in an attempt not to, however, it isn't working. I might even be making myself seem like the most unintelligent bore in the bunch. But isn't that usually the case... sigh. Anyway, this is the last time I redo this thing. I won't second guess myself again. I hope.

What is your name (real or otherwise)?
Flippa Bird

Describe your writing style in three words.
Untrained Unabashed Unpretentious... (even though unabashed sounds kinda pretentious)
How long have you been writing online?
Hmmm... Not quite a year. October of 2011
Which, if any, other writing challenges do you participate in?
Nada, zip, zilch, none.
Describe one way in which you could improve your writing.
Learning proper comma placement would probably be a good thing. I'm positive there are a gazillion other ways I could improve my writing. But since I don't know how to write properly, (I use diarrhea of the brain method), I don't know what it is I need to improve.
What is the best writing advice you’ve ever been given?
I hate to say it, but I think most writers are stuck-up and full of themselves, (myself included... and I'm not even a real writer), and pretty much any writing advice you're given is gonna be clichĂ©. But to be honest I don't think anyone's ever given me writing advice, although I know I could use it.
Who is your favorite author?
Too many to list. I love to read. Period.
How do you make time to write?
I just rush to my computer whenever something pops into my head that's worth jotting down. Sometimes I make it in time and other times it all falls out of my head, (See? Diarrhea of the brain). If someone starts talking to me while I'm writing, then I completely lose everything. Including my temper.
Give us one word we should consider using as a prompt. Remember--it must have a third definition.
3. Splatter (adj): characterized by extreme or excessive gore or violence <a splatter movie>
Direct us to one blog post of yours that we shouldn't miss reading.

I just don't know. Some of them I love and some of them make me think, "What the hell were you thinking when you wrote this?!" But anywho... here's one my cousin likes and she has good taste: Gardening

  1. Love your sense of humor. I also agree that us writers are just a little bit self-centered (I mean we give ourselves the prestigious title of "writer" or "author" as if it were the same as "President") but isn't that what makes us interesting? ;)

    Found you through Trifecta link up, I'm going to start on the challenges too :)
