Hello everyone!
« on: March 24, 2015, 04:41:49 PM »
     Hi, my name is Justin O'Neal. Unlike most people who enjoy writing, I can't stand reading. I hope that changes here in these forums soon so I can become a better writer. I currently write for a blog called Lorekeepers Inn which has another author who actually told me about Fantasy-faction.
     I'm not use to forums or threads or anything like that so this will be a whole new experience to me. I don't normally post on anything but Lorekeeper's Inn so I may not be very active.
     Things I rather enjoy doing aside from writing would be drawing, gardening, collecting Pokemon cards, playing the piano, and or golfing. I am fairly young so when it comes to my stories they may lack experience. I really enjoy what the forum is here for and I'm glad for being about to join ;D.

Hello Justin! Glad of you to join us.

Don't mind not reading. That stuff's for the birds. Amiright? Eh?

Now that my comedy act's out of the way ( :P), I think you'll enjoy our wacky company round these parts. If you're looking for a good book to pick up or a recommendation, the Fantasy Books Board might be your place, or if you want to get more experience at that writing thing, we have a Monthly Writing Contest open for submissions. This month's theme is Rogues, so go try your hand.

I think you'll like it here, and from one youngster to the next, enjoy that time while it lasts! Cheers!

Thanks, I will probably wait until next month for the contest, not sure I have a whole lot of time for this one though it is short enough for me to wing it :P. I was reading into the contests and it's something I have been looking for. I enjoy being told what to write about when I get writers block it really helps. I will also have to look at the Fantasy book board. Thanks for the tips :)

I totally love being told what topic to write on. Really works for me. And welcome!

Released? I want to read the proof copy ;D

Welcome Opachii, I hope you have a good time here - although I have to admit I don't really understand you, I think if I didn't read I'd be dead (no, not dramatic at all, me ;D but close!)
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!
