About Writing: I've been a writer for many years.

I consider myself multi-genre. Flash fiction and fake articles, leaning more towards comedy. Short stories and long fiction (books, scripts) vary a great deal more. Genres such as sci-fi, fantasy, horror, romance, and etc. While non-fiction articles are a little more serious, with the odd joke in some of them.

With my hubs, whatever is fiction I insert [fake article by character] or [flash fiction], etc. Beneath the header, before the body of the article. Otherwise, assume it's non-fiction.

My non-fiction, I'm going to write about technology, games, dreams, writing, philosophy, life, designs, art, photography, and travel destinations.

About Me: My favourite season is Fall. I love it because it feels like I'm walking through a mosaic painting. There's all these vibrant colours in fall. Sometimes, even the people wearing their fall clothes seem to just blend in with the theme. Shortly before the painter becomes bored with the canvas, then it's winter. Back to the dull white themes of a blank canvas.

In winter, I like quiet evenings by the fire. I have a 17' inch Samsung fireplace. Its just like the real thing, without the risk of setting my apartment on fire.

I also like long walks on the beach, as long as the snow isn't too deep.

Perhaps what I like about winter most is I know at some point, it will get shorter. Thanks to global warming, so I guess that's one pro. The experts would argue that it's a con, but how many of them endure harsh Canadian winters? :P

As they say, when life gives you lemons - make lemonade. Then add salt to their drinks so people are thirsty enough to buy more. I mean *shifts eyes*, make the best out of what you have.

If bird is the word for you and you give a tweet – you can follow me on Twitter. @Gyldenboy. You can also find hub related tweets by me using the hashtag - #Gyldenhub. If you find anyone else using that hashtag, just know it's a doppelganger. Note, I rarely update. But if you follow, you'll certainly be in the know when I do post something. Have a great day! ^.^

Ray Byrne hubs

Fake articles using the perspective of a fictional character. Mostly for entertainment value. Will eventually be moved, and possibly continued on my future website for fiction.

Notes: A article targeting modern doomsayers, particularly 2012.

Notes: I don't think anyone would follow this advice, but then, I don't think Ray Byrne is anyone's role model.

Notes: Poking fun, at a non-existent indie game.

Other Fictional Hubs

Hubpages is not the platform for me to publish fiction I realize. I'll someday post my fiction on a platform that will support it. In the meantime, enjoy the hub below, or don't.
