Any other writing styles you wish to try or take up other than prose? (e.g. Scriptwriting, poetry etc)

I've written scripts before, but nothing serious. I don't really enjoy writing to the screenplay format; I find it too restrictive and concise almost, as if the building of the fictional world is taken out of my hands as the writer and the realisation palmed off to some incompetent director. I'm very protective of my imaginary constructs:-P
I'd love to give writing a radio-play a go! I've very brief plans for a comedic radio play series called "Las Cantinas" set in the bar of a space-colony on the frontiers; nothing original in that premise but I'm sure I could have some fun with it! Gonna develop it with some like-minded individuals in 2014!
Poetry... nah, I'm not a very poetic writer. Haven't you realised that already?! ;-)

Why do you have such a high opinion of yourself when you are quite clearly socially challenged (particularly when it comes to women, although a lack of body confidence probably has something to do with that)?

lol, wtf?!
This question came across as pretty confrontational. I wouldn't say I have a high opinion of myself on a personal level; rather, I feel my work is Not Complete Shit and thus deserves a bigger airing than I feel it gets at the moment. I'd be intrigued as to know why you feel I'm thinking highly of myself?
I've actually had a history of feeling quite bad about myself (high school was very tough socially) and yeah, I'm indeed socially awkward; my introverted nature is certainly at play there. Mentioning "body confidence" and issues with women shows you're missing the point or don't really know me; sure, I suppose body confidence is a low-lying issue for me but not in regards to women as I'm actually asexual.
And I'm happy about that.
Intrigued as to who asked this as it's a pretty deep dissection by the looks of it. Bit saddened that whoever posted this doesn't seem to know me as well as I'd like.

How many people do you consider your "best friends?"

A few. I don't really have "best friends" per se; though there are a few people I'd say I can talk more deeply to.
Yes, some of them are IRL and some are interweb people.

Could you live without a computer?

Probably, though my wrist would kill me.
(Because I'd have to write long-hand; get your mind out of the gutter!) :-P
