a forty sumthin sumthin year old Australian.

he joined this site way back at the start of 2004.

He is a firm believer that the emotion and content of a piece is the most important part and that without that you have someone who knows the perfect place for a comma but has nowhere to put it because they are lacking in creativity. He believes that a reader should use as much imagination in reading as a writer uses in writing. It's only fair really.
This doesn't mean that he doesn't agree with punctuation...just that maybe people could chill a bit on attacking writers for punctuation rather than encouraging their creativity.
*He has noticed there appears to be a trend to automatically rate work highly if it pays well for are writers to improve if they just get their ego fluffed for sometimes average uninspired writing?

He wants to encourage others to "live outside the box"
He is an Onion Soul which sporadically peels and sheds its' necessary messages!
Either that or he may just be bonkers!!!
He hopes you are not offended by his stance yet will not change it!
He also has a quirky comical side which you will either like or ask " what the **** is he on ?"

A special mention is needed for mrgrunty's partner in ridiculous writing "Jammin John" and their bastard offspring "JOSE QUIRM" The Jammer ROCKS!!

And he has always wondered who it is that reads his portfolio and hopes you might still say hi if you enjoy it...

p-s:- Anything under here is not written by me. (oops I mean in third person, not written by mrgrunty!")

mrgrunty: Does anyone still read my ramblings?

mrgrunty: I really should post something again...

    --Turtle.: I'm in the same boat. If only time, motivation, and my muse were all helping me row a bit.

mrgrunty: how's it going folks..How much are rankings these days?

    giraffmang: Don't know - what's the going rate for hard work and talent?
    December 5, 2015 at 5:18PM
    mrgrunty: if only those two things were part of the same equation...

mrgrunty: Apparently everyone who posts poetry on this site is excellent! I just scanned the entire 10 pages of poetry for review and there is only 1x Four Star review... Having read many submissions I find this odd. I expect this post will be deleted by admin shortly as have others mysteriously in the past..
just an observation..

    rama devi: Warm welcome to Fs. Sadly, he site has morphed over the years. More members used to use the rating scale honestly and offer constructive critique. Now, the majority gives and expects five stars and very few give in depth reviews. However, there ARE dozens of members who do use the rating scale and take time to review thoroughly--but it takes time to find your like-minded people here. I recommend exploring further. Check the reviewing forum also, as this issue has been discussed at length numerous times over the years.

    mrgrunty: Hi rama, welcome to Fanstory also. I don't review too much as most of the supposed best writers here write at a 3 star standard and do not like anything other than to be told they are wonderful. I read a select few who I know to be excellent .
    Hope to see you around.

    Marillion: Mr Grunty!!! Long time, brother! I decided to come back for a bit, and I'm glad to see a name I recognize. Looks like a lot has changed, so I'll need some time, but wanted to say hello.

    Permelia: After my sister, Vesta (Eldora) died, I lost heart- and had heart attacks, and dropped out of Fanstory, but my family decided I needed to go back to writing my memories. I was thrilled to see your name. Are you still in Australia? Or did you go back to Endland? Have you gotten married? I miss you and your poetry! Hugs Your friend, Mona
