Finally saying an official Howdy.

Howdy
Been creeping the forums for a little bit and testing the waters. I am slow to acclimate. But I have definitely been lacking people to discuss my obsession with fantasy, so I decided to give this place a shot.

I have been a fan of fantasy for as long as I can remember. I started with the Hobbit and it blew up from there.
My experience is more of the mainstream or old school fantasy authors. Terry Brooks, Robert Jordan, David Eddings, Melanie Rawn, Raymond E. Feist. But I am not averse to new and different.

Surprise, I also write. So many do. I have been writing fantasy with the dream of being an author my entire life. Stage 4 Cancer a few years back kicked me in the butt and I am finally trying to make it happen. I have a few shorts, and the beginning of a novella series on Amazon, but am currently almost finished with final edits for my first full-length novel "Tears of Hatsunae". Strangely enough, I finished writing my first novel only to discover how few people I know who actually read or appreciate fantasy. Good to see there are more of us out there.

Thanks. I'm getting there. Strangely I am confident with dialog until I get to my own. Should start writing as one of my characters instead.
