I made Matthew go “squick!”

I had Matthew do first reader duties on my catharsis story the other day. Everything I write goes through him first before it gets sent through my critique groups gamut. He’s got a better eye for pacing and tone than anyone I know and my stories don’t graduate from zero draft to first draft status until after he’s had a go at them.

But, get this, my horrific little tale made him go squick. Hee! Matthew watches movies like Hellraiser and Poltergeist that send me cowering under the covers (yes, I’m a timid girlie-girl, shut up) and I wrote something that gave him the willies!

  1. Hey..I know this is rather old, but was wondering if you’d seen this? I’m fairly sure you have..but just in case…as you know…using your name in his journal w/o your permission is against TOS 🙂

      Thank you. I hadn’t been aware of this. I am reporting this to LJ Abuse immediately.

      • I couldn’t believe it when I read it…and how had we passed it up for what….4 months?! Sheesh!

          I’ve been trying not to read any of his journals/lj.us, etc., ’cause it just pisses me off too much. Apparently, I shouldn’t have been so head-in-sand on this.

          This just makes me so furious. I put everything I am into my writing. To be accused of stealing it! I can’t even express how pissed off I am right now.

          Incidentally, I’m screening these posts until I hear back from LJ. Don’t want him locking his journal and then deleting the offending items until they can see them and hopefully suspend this newest account. I think I know all my LJ friends, but I’ve gotten a big case of paranoid from all this. Just in case you were wondering where they’d gone to.
