Yes Bradley loves writing about toilets for example, you can make him happy mentioning toilets in your posts!

Eclipse was browsing the obscure scrolls in the holy hall of fantasy faction and chronicling the members name of past,present and future when he heard a noise, he put down the scrolls and went to see what the commotion was  where he stumbled upon a strange scene a toilet which was never before there in this section of the hall and the member  Bradley kneeling before it like he was preying to it "hi eclipse I thought I was the only one down here, I'm doing very boring work for my masters and I'm too lazy to go back to the entrance of the hall to use the toilet so I thought while not kill two birds with one stone. I can summon a demon toilet to do my bidding!, I can use my own personal toilet and I can kill my  slave masters with the stench coming off  from demon toilet"

Eclipse frowned doubtfully at this he know some members were a bit on the crazy side but this took the biscuit and he was worried about the  ancient scrolls , there was already a god of Goats haunting the place scaring visitors away. Bradley he said have you thought this through? Because that demon you summon looks out of control.

"Crap" there both said in unison

Hello. I haven't introduced myself because sometimes I prefer to get to know someone before saying hello.  :-\ (Introvert problems.)

I'm successfully aspiring to be a writer. I resaddled a few years back after doing a bit of everything (psychology, literature, factory work, etc.) After uprooting my old life (I was miserable), I decided that writing would be my new focus. Now I do some freelance work as a content editor and occasionally content writing, but whenever I can I work on my own material. I have way less money and I'm way happier!

Welcome!

No worries, lots of introverts around here :D

I normally say 'post at will', but you've already started to do that, so yay!
If you're a writer, then give our monthly contest a chance - we've just posted June's theme :)

Hi, I'm new ^^

I'm ThiefofHope and I write dark, high fantasy epics. I hope that by joining a fantasy-focussed community I'll get the feedback and support I need to sell my second and third works, a duology following five points of view.

Hmm...I play violin, love to worldbuild independent of what goes into the stories, I cosplay, and I waffle about on the internet when I should be doing something more constructive.

Nice to meet you all!

Also, do you have to do a captcha every time you make a post? I don't mind much, it's just really hard on my eyes T.T

Hi and welcome, @ThiefofHope!

The captch thing only happens during the first 5 posts (I think!), just to avoid spammer bots, hehe

Browse, read and post at will! We're all very nice, and a little bit crazy too ;)

Alright, thank you :D

I got fed up with another forum that wasn't fantasy-specific (they were awfully anti-speculative fiction for an "all-genres" forum) so I made it my mission to hunt down a fantasy-oriented place and found this :) I like it so far.

I will speak to you on three conditions @ThiefofHope

You need to be a bit odd

You use the English spellings not the Ridiculous American spelling of words, use the U my friend

Worship the great Goat God of the forums

oh and its okay if you don't like Robin Hoob like Bea, oh wait that's me  :D


okay fess up which famous author could you not get into? and whose you favourites (not favorites use the bloody U!)

@Eclipse I've certainly got the first bit down, as well as using mostly English spellings for words--especially the U. I'm not familiar with the Great Goat God of the Forums, but I'd love to be enlightened.

A famous author I couldn't get into is Paolini. I just couldn't do it. I like dragons and stuff but it was just...boring. I need more going on than what it offered.

Hi, @ThiefofHope and welcome!
It's great to have new victims members.
As regards waffling on the internet when you're not writing, search for the "Avoiding writing" thread.
If you do get a good bout of writing in, search form"How much did you write today"
If you hate your day job, we have a thread for that.
There's a monthly writing contest.
And a tavern if you just want to shoot any of us the breeze.

Enjoy!

@Jmack Thank you!

This is the best reception I've received in any writing forum I've been to, including the one I run. I really like it here :D you're all so nice.
