The sun was weak, enveloping the complex in a wintry light. Anton winced as a frosty wind, carrying the smell of early morning dew, chiselled at his bare skin. Shivering, he began the short walk to...

Thanks, Craig.

I have written more - just editing it though, at the moment. Taking this one really slowly. I'll probably put it up on my blog (see signature) before here. I've also edited the bit...

It's personal, and something I've generally seen. Like real life everyone has someone they prefer to go to for different things and I feel that people side with a certain character.

Never tried really. I've never had a good enough idea, one I'm excited about, to dedicate so much time to it. I barely finish anything unless they're set in stone (e.g articles). It's been years...

Read mostly. Or do homework/write/clean the house. I'm nocturnal so if I wake up, I usually stay awake and I'm really productive. I write nearly all of my good stuff around 1 or 2 in the morning.
