Hello everyone!
« on: September 16, 2015, 09:06:18 AM »
I've been reading the FF blog for a while now and have only just joined the forum. I'm looking forward to getting involved with it, and I've already entered the September monthly writing contest. Great fun!

As for me, I'm currently studying Creative Writing at university in the UK, pursuing my dream of becoming a published author. I'm a lover of fantasy fiction primarily, though I find myself reading more and more SF as the years go on. And I have recently completed my first novel, an urban fantasy story, and am currently working toward getting it published.

No doubt be seeing you guys around the forum. Great to meet you!

Hey welcome to FF and good luck with the writing competition  :)
Haven't read the entries yet, waiting for the end of the month to do that.
Always nice to have more people in though.  ;)

Thanks Henry, I appreciate it!
I've read a few entries so far and am really enjoying the different approaches to the theme.
Good luck with your own entry, too :)

Howdy, Alan!

As Henry said, we love new pigs to the slaughter writing contest participants. And we love fresh meat new authors trying to get their stuff out there.  ;) ;D

If you haven't found the King's Paws thread yet, you could mosey along over there sometime when you just want to shoot the shite breeze.

Glad you found us! We're threats to the existence of the universe harmless and fun!

Can I be lazy and just add 'ditto'? ;D

And on behalf of the non-writers, I suggest you go to the top section and start posting about general books you like too, and random questions about the genre :)
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!
