Profile for Aphid

Member since February 17, 2009

I sometimes hang out in the Writing Room. Since several people have inquired - I use the name "Aphid" after a character of mine, who had it for a nickname. (Is it the opposite of a Mary Sue to name yourself after your own character?) It references my farm intern past. Also, I like the shape of the word. It looks noble, as long as you don't think about the squishy, little parasitic bugs. Since I sometimes wonder about other posters, I will add that I am female and in my twenties. My Little Copyright Rant: while it's always fun to read and comment on other people's work, there are copyright concerns to posting actual writing on the board. They were discussed a little bit here.
Also, I'm not sure what the license agreement is on the board, and how that interacts.
