Asked google "Fantasy writers review" and found you in the first page. I don't do Twitter  ::)
What is Twitter?  ;)
Then again, I barely know what Instagram, vine, snapchat, and texting are.
(Actually, I know all these things, but just don't want to admit it) :)

I actually don't know what snapchat is. An app I guess? I've never owned a smartphone. I've actually only touched one for about a total of an hour in my life. And a major part of my job is to make websites work on smartphones...  ???

Do I get a medal?

Snapchat is how your bet friends finally manage to shamelessly send you pictures of their lunch and their last nail job or their morning sleepy faces. Because the photos they send are suppressed from your phone in a matter of seconds. It's a 007 auto destructive note.
The app became famous for its obvious use in sexting... I must admit while I never used Vine or Instagram, I have snapchat... Never went past the nail polish pics tho  :'(

How did you find the Forum?

*because I'm curious* 8)

I found it via a writer friend, who recommended it to me saying "it's all about fantasy books, I'm sure you'd fit right in"

Guess what? I do! (and he never really posted much here anyway hehe)
 :D

At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

Fantasy Faction is a bit like a dream/nightmare (delete as applicable), you might remember the details but have no fucking clue how you got there.

In other words I don't recall. :p Probably from an article posted on twitter.

i got here from mark lawrence's great self-published fantasy blog-off.  i clicked a bit and saw the monthly writing contest and thought that sounded fun.

... and then, you guys sucked me in and subsequently destroyed all of my productivity.
