I am an aspiring fantasy novelist that has been writing my first novel since November 2012. I am very inspired by the Thomas Covenant novels, and like those novels, mine features a reluctant hero called from our own world in modern times. He even has some of the same traits and fears, but he is also different than TC. He is a drug addict rather than a leper. He has a magic knife instead of a ring. He is a musician instead of a writer. He also has a sense of humor about him that serious-minded TC lacks.
The story is mostly serious, but it has kind of a zany humor mixed in to it. I do have kind of Lord Foul like ultimate antagonist, but he is uniquely my own.
My story also has traditional epic fantasy races like elves, dwarves and gnomes. Or, rather, it has my own unique versions of those races.
If I can ever finish writing it and figure out the business of getting published, hopefully I will have a lucrative novel(or a few) of my own.

Be Welcome to the Watch, CS.
Be Well Come and True.

We have several published authors on the Watch, as well as a hidden Writers forum, although I do not know how much activity the Writers forum has, since I am not a writer and did not ask to see the forum. But we also have The Hall of Gifts, should you choose to publicly share any of your compositions.

Interesting. I was thinking about maybe sharing excerpts from my pending novel and a few short stories that I have written. I wrote four short stories this past year. I used to do that a lot when I was young, but I never kept any of them or tried to get them published. But, when I got the interest in writing fiction again a little over a year ago, I did so with actual aspirations. So I will be holding on to all of the stories that I write from that moment farther.
This is also about my fourth attempt at writing a fantasy novel. My earlier attempts were lame and arduous. This time, I know what works for me, and I have a strong story vision for this story that I lacked before. Basically, I finally learned how to tap into my true inner storyteller. I have well over 300 handwritten pages right now.
I have learned that for me personally, outlining and trying to plan everything out just doesn't work. I do much better letting the ideas come as I go along and kind of freestyling it. It certainly adds an element of surprise as I often don't even know what is going to happen next until right soon before I start writing it.

Welcome to the Watch.

The writers forum is hidden in order to prevent public domain issues, if that's what worries you. Otherwise, in your own time. Wink

Go read and post and generally join in. Very Happy

Welcome, Clinton Seeber! The writers' forum is mostly moribund, but maybe some fresh blood will get it going again. Smile

Probably not. Mainly because we lack motivation. Wink

But no harm in trying. Very Happy
