Bio

Straight out of wintry Russia into the only corner of Canada where it doesn't snow. Started writing fiction in English before I could spell the word 'please', and needless to say my writing has come a long way since then. Mostly write short story, but recently developed the attention span for a novel. Once I complete my degree in Psychology from UBC, hope to move on to law school in the east. Forseti comes from the Norse god of justice.

  • A review of Bob's Big Bet
    by forseti on 02/11/2010
    Firstly, some thoughts as I was reading this: 1 – what a slowpoke – very unnatural bit of dialogue. 1 – how could Bob not see them coming? He’s hitting 110 miles on fourth gear. The roar should be insane. 1 – why was he so pissed that a car passed him? He’s on the frickin highway. 2 – “Whoa, was that guy fast, or what?” is this Bob’s thoughts or the narrator’s? Only acceptable... read

    Firstly, some thoughts as I was reading this: 1 – if she was bear foot, why did he automatically assuming she was selling? I would automatically assume she was strange. 2 – the paragraph that begins with “I’ve seen this once” before – very very confusing. Switching from a toy to a real squirrel in mid-paragraph. What is going on? 4 – kissing in the ballpit. It is sudden. And... read

    Firstly, some thoughts as I was reading this: 1 - *the* head of the table 1 – “president’s” side 1 – right hand/left hand distinction is entirely pointless 2 – your “turrist” just sounds like “tourist” and nothing like terrorist 2 – the random violence involving the servant is just not funny 3 – why is the servant even there? Seems classified to me. Very annoying 4 – working/sleep... read

    good day to you...

    thanks for the review. a few of your points i have received multiple remarks on, some good and some bad. on that note i can only assume that this type of short is inherently doomed to be either really funny or really unfunny to each and every person reading it.

    with regards to the 9 - 5 statement...i'm a day trader that has working hours from midnight to 9 am. take your stereotypes and shove them up your ass.

    now, for a review of your review...i think you may have missed the idea behind "constructive criticism". you should try to be a bit less subjective when you're writing out your next review. hope things are well.
