    A Thing to Contemplate: a sci-fi phenomenon

    It's a rather niche little trilogy, but has anyone else read the Chaos Walking books by Patrick Ness? If not, I'll give a little more info as to what I've been thinking about since my diagnosis. I loved these books dearly during my teen years, and to me they're still moving today. There is, in...

    What fictional programs about relationships do you like?

    While I know in storytelling that one emphasizes things to perhaps exaggerate conflict and outcomes, I remain fascinated with programs that highlight relationships, trying to fathom what is going on as well as understanding the characters and their actions. While never a guide for life, I enjoy...

    Let's say you're reading a story, and something happens to one of the characters. I'll present three versions of this scenerio, and possible responses you might have. 1. The situation in the story is something you yourself have never experienced before (for example, the character's beloved dog...

    Looking for Beta Readers for my book

    Do you like to read? I am looking for Beta Readers. ‘What is that?’ you might ask. A beta reader is someone who agrees to read a draft of a book and give the reader their opinion of it. If you would be interested but feel that you lack expertise, don’t let that stop you. I am just interested in...

    Best Places To Work! An Autistic Adventure in Corporate America 2020-02-25

    I was semi-active on this site a long while ago for about six months (late 2016-early 2017), which was from the time I was diagnosed with Asperger's until I started my first job back in the working world post-diagnosis. Then I dropped out. What happened after that? That's what the book is about...

    Tell a blatant lie/Fabulous Fib

    Aspies and auties have a reputation for always being truthful, so here's a thread that shows how creative we can be by telling an obvious and/or outrageous whopper of a fib. Here's one of mine: I never speak to my cats in baby talk. Izzin dat wight, my widdle smoochy-woochy babbeh...

    What Hogwarts house would you be in, and why?

    If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, then chances are you’ve spent perhaps a little too much time thinking about what house you’d be in. Personally, I was never that interested in the main plot of the books or films, however, I was intrigued by some of the concepts of such a World. I preferred to...

    Were you imaginative as a child?

    Fiction played a significantly large role in my childhood. In a way it helped me cope with my surroundings. Having an imaginary world that I could escape to when times got rough altered my mood at times. I spent years creating my own paracosm, adding small details to it each day (even down to...

    (To the writers) What do you enjoy the most about writing?

    Personally, I would say that I enjoy; -the fact that it has led to me learning new things, and also it has rekindled an interest in learning in general. Sometimes for a scene I'll have to research into specific areas to make sure that small details are correct. Which has helped me to discover...

    Anyone else here excited to check out American Gods or the next season of Chronicles of Shannara?

    I hear the American Gods series pretty much perfectly follows the book so far and I can't wait to see it once I have my own internet again! Also, MTV dropped Shannara cause it was too adult for them, but oh well now Spike TV has renewed it for season 2 starting in October! For those that have...

    Fiction Book Suggestions

    I recently started reading some fiction and I do find it enjoyable. I feel though that there is too much emphasis on personal relationships and not enough investigation and mystery. Any suggestions on fiction that might appeal to people on the spectrum?

    Last Book You Read/Next Book You Want to Read?

    Idk if there are many big readers on here. Reading and taking tests on books for bonus credit was how I passed high school English (absolute worst subject for me, I have zero ability to write). Since being pregnant now and trying to take my mind off how horrible everything is I've gotten...

    CHIPS INSIDE FISH TANK Once upon a time a man emptied a load of chips into the fish tank so they could be with the fish because fish go with chips. If you have a load of fish in the aquarium then you have to include chips as well. Fish get on very well with chips. It's not unusual to catch...
