Hello there!
« on: September 26, 2020, 09:26:03 AM »
Hi all! New here and thought I'd introduce myself.

The name's Sarah, and I live in Sydney, Australia. I work full-time as a graphic designer by day, and write fantasy by night. Not professionally or anything, but I picked up creative writing as a hobby a while ago and wanted to get involved in an online community and meet some other writers, share my work and see what everyone else is writing. Most of what I write would probably fall into the category of "comic fantasy".

Some of my favourite authors include Terry Pratchett, Robin Hobb, Patrick Rothufss, Ursula K. Le Guin and Scott Lynch. When I'm not reading/writing, I enjoy baking, video games, jamming out to instrumental film/TV soundtracks, knitting, crochet and designing cross-stitch patterns.

Looking forward to having some good discussions and getting to know you all  ;D

Another Aussie! Huzzah! :D And welcome to the forum. I'm Dee, and I'm in Melbourne. I'm a stay-home mum to a five-year-old and I'm trying to write by day, night, any chance the little bundle of questions lets me...

When cupiscent finishes her manuscript, we will throw a party for her!  Eclipse will wear a toga, and bring a decapitated goat

 ;D Promises promises! I actually finished the manuscript and handed it to my agent about a month ago, but let's save the toga-party for if it ever gets sold!
