Well, let’s start with the obligatory pitch. There’s not really much to say, and most of it will come out in the questions, but I’ll give the quick history.
The first gunge story I wrote was when I was about 15, although I’ve forgotten most of the details, and I’ve moved back and forth to uni since, so I’ve no idea if I still have it. Don’t worry, it comes with the obligatory “first attempt” warnings, and will never see the light of day.
Also around the same time, I had a crazy idea of writing a story (non-wam related). It was never going to go anywhere, but it did provide what may be a familiar backdrop to my stories. If you ever saw the notes, you’d probably recognise some of the characters, and settings. Again, never going to see the light of day.
Now, on to the first story I posted. Back in January 2009 (at uni by this time), after seeing some other attempts at stories posted on ECGunge at the time, I decided to just write one overnight (to be honest, I had some half finshed pieces which weren’t going anywhere). The result can be viewed in this blog’s archive, but the upshot was, my confidence rose, and more stories followed.
After a particular situation that we shan’t talk about, I posted stories on this blog instead. I then “borrowed” an idea from ECGunge, which people loved, and The Gunge Grand Prix ave.(can I trademark that?) was born.
That should give you the basics. I’m happy to take any questions (in fact this would be a boring post if I didn’t get any questions) that you may have. Thank You.
