Q&A with Comicality – Part 3

[WARNING: The post may contain spoilers.]

Well everyone who reads gay fiction online has heard of him. He’s a legend in himself. Comicality has written such stories as Gone from Daylight, Savage Moon, and New Kid in School.

Here I present part 3 of my interview with him.

Q. Is there intelligent life in outer space?

Ha! I certainly hope so! There certainly isn’t that much down here with US!

Q. What was the first piece you ever wrote?

LOL! Well…the first piece I ever wrote ONLINE was of course, “New Kid”. But the first piece EVER? I still actually have it to this day. When I was 4 years old, I wrote a story about a shark and a frog, and it was about 8 pages long. I made it up myself, and drew pictures, and everything. Hehehe, at the time, it was just a harmless impulse, I’m sure…but when I look at it now, it’s actually pretty damn VIOLENT! Hahaha! Which is hilarious.

Funny side note, on my kindergarten report card…it says ‘He seems to really like creative writing’. If only they knew what I was using it for now. ๐Ÿ˜›

Q. How much do you feel you’ve improved in the last few years?

Not as much as I really wish I could have. I’m always trying to push myself to do bigger and better things. The last thing I want to do is get ‘comfortable’ and start telling the same story over and over. So I try to brainstorm and come up with new ideas and see if it’s possible for me to pull them off with some level of skill. Hehehe! Which, sometimes I try new ideas and they fail miserably, but then I just try to come up with something else entirely, and see how that works. If it’s not at least a little bit ‘difficult’ for me to write and figure out…then I’m not learning anything.

I think I’ve gotten better than my earliest attempts at writing stories on the site, though. And that always makes me look back, like, “UGH!” Hehehe, I already hate a lot of my own stuff, so that’s painful to look at. I try to avoid it as much as humanly possible. The newer stuff I think is better. But I’m still trying to improve all the time. I feel like I have a long way to go before I reach the level I want to be at. I still have a lot of flaws and blind spots and limitations that I’m trying to get past with everything I write. I want to do things that nobody’s ever done before. Something untouchable, you know?

Q. What’s your favourite board game?

Wow, they still have board games in the video game age? ๐Ÿ˜› Actually, ‘Othello’.

Q. What room is your favourite to write in?

My bedroom. It’s the only place I can write comfortably. It’s more than just the comfort and privacy, but I’m surrounded by all of my influences. I have all of my posters, drawings, books, music…it’s all within sight. It feeds my creativity. And I have all of the gifts and stuff that I’ve gotten from Shackers right here in front of me. So I’ve kinda made a ‘temple’ out of my room. I always did, even when I was little. Growing up, my room was the only real ‘safe’ place in the house. It stuck with me.

Q. Who do you act out the scenes in your stories with?

Hehehe, depends on what ‘scenes’ you’re talking about. ::Wink:: Actually, nobody. When I’m concentrating on my writing, I’m on total shut down. So the rest of the world kinda gets put on hold until I get my current thoughts out. So I may mumble to myself or sorta meditate on a single sentence for a while to get it right but no acting out for me.

Q. If you could invite any famous person, dead or alive, for dinner, what would you eat?

Hehehe, if they were alive….pizza. Just plain old pizza. I wanna see them in jeans and a t-shirt, in their relaxed, natural element…no fancy manners and eight types of silverware…unh unh, none of that. Just pizza slices and greasy napkins and good conversation.

But if they were dead? Well….I guess we would just feed on the juicy flesh of the living. Which…you know…is just as good.

Q. What’s your problem?

How much time you got? I’ll write you a list.

Q. Where you at?

A higher plane of existence where pain and sorrow can never infect the purity of my soul.

Psh! Nah, I’m just kidding. I’m in the basement watching dumpster porn.

Q. If you had to choose only one vice, what would it be?

Gluttony. In all it’s many forms and expressions. I have to confess that I am a big sucker for a bit of indulgence here and there. ‘One more sliver of cheesecake’, ‘stay awake for 15 more minutes’, ‘have just ONE more shot of tequila before the bar closes’…that’s me all the way. On one hand, I probably have a lot of habits that are bad for me. On the other hand….I can either party and have the time of my life for the short time that I’m here…or I can live to be a really really old man who never did anything he wanted to, and has no ‘story’ left to tell. So, ‘carpe diem’ and all that jazz.

Q. Do you know your ass from a hole in the ground? And if so, how do you tell the difference?

Hehehe, I would most certainly HOPE so! If I can actually SEE it (without the use of a trick mirror), then I’m assuming that’s the hole in the ground. But I might stick my finger in it and wiggle it around just to be sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

Q. What genre of books do you like to read? Do you limit yourself to only the genre that you write yourself?

Oh God no! I HATE my own writing! That would drive me crazy! But as far as other genres, no, I never limit anything. A good story is a good story, regardless. I think at the heart of every story, there’s a certain humanity involved that affects and connects us all, no matter what the genre is. I do tend to look for things that are a bit ‘darker’ though for some reason. I don’t know why. I must have one hell of an evil side in me somewhere that’s trying to get out. Hehehe!

Q. Who do you think you are?

Who’s asking? And what has HE heard? Because I’ve been trying to figure that out since I was 12!!!

Q. What is your favourite cereal?

Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch! Awww yeah!!!

Q. Have you ever thought when a hearse goes by that you might be the next to die?

Hehehe, not really. I’ve gone a couple rounds with the Grim Reaper so far, and I seem to be handling myself pretty well in that battle. But if death DOES come knocking at my door for the ‘final’ time…I hope he gives me some advance notice so I can stop paying my bills.

Q. If you could have one wish, would you give it to me?

Awww, sure I would! But you gotta PAY!!! And none of that ‘wish for a billion dollars and pay me out of that’ stuff either. I’ll need it up front! ๐Ÿ™‚

Q. Do you have anything you’d like to plug?

You mean sexually? ::Giggles:: Nah, I’ve talked way too much already! Just come and find me online, drop by the site, join the party! Everybody is welcome! Just Google me! ๐Ÿ˜›
