Hello I wanted to post some updates I've made to my writing blog.

Story Summary: Welcome to New Vale, a story about a boy and his library. Gabriel Bailey, a boring teenager, who if left to his own devices, would wile away his life reading in New Vale’s Old Public Library. However, his peaceful existence is shattered of its quiet and solitude when a strange and annoying young man with red eyes begins pestering Gabriel as he reads. Without warning our reluctant hero finds himself involved in a side of New Vale he never thought existed. Now, Gabriel struggles between choosing to brave this new adventure or return to his safe library, ignoring the world once more.

Hello.
I don't do introductory posts, but seeing as it is suggested, here goes.
I like big words and I enjoy writing fantasy. I also like to read fantasy. Go elves! Go Tolkien! Go Paolini!
Vampires...Werewolves...not so much, but if they are ugly bloodthirsty mongrels with minor parts in the story, perhaps.
I hope to help other people with their work and I would like others to help me with mine, hey! I am not perfect!
On the work I have done...I have written many, many short stories. And one "full length" novel. c. 345 pages. Yeah.
I sometimes write odd poetry. But I won't post that here.
So, if you like philisophical faeries that amuse themselves in various ways, reads my stuff. If not, read my stuff. Perhaps you will grow to like it.
So without further ado,
Namarie, Faelariel.
P.S. I am also a senior in high school.

Hi, I'm Shan and I'm new to the community here.  I'm a bit new to LiveJournal too.

Anyway, I'm an aspiring writer and hope to one day get published.  At the moment I'm just trying to find a job as an editor or writer somewhere in my town.  I specialize in stories about kids and teens with a fantasy twist.  At the moment I'm writing a novel called New Vale: A Story About a Boy and His Library, in which I'm posting to my writing blog: http://newvale.wordpress.com/  I live in the Midwest, so a lot of the settings of my stories deal with small towns with odd things happening in them.

At the moment not much is posted to my LiveJournal account, but I hope to fix that soon.  As for the story, I update it every five to six days on the blog site. 

I hope to post here to in order to garner feedback and constructive criticism. 

Thanks for reading!

Hey there ^^ I just got a LiveJournal not too long ago, and while I was searching fantasy writings I found this community.

Maybe first I should introduce myself? My name is Irene, I turned 18 not too long ago and I live in Victoria. My hobbies include drawing and writing, hence why I joined this community. Another reason: I am unable to write a story without some form of fantasy in it XD I'm not certain what else I should write here, but I also love reading stories while they are in the process of being made.

Hello fellow writers,

After some shakes in my life, which made my future a little uncertain, I've decided I'll try making my way in the world doing things I like. I've been thinking up plots since I can remember myself and have spent about five years before attending university, writing various fan fiction stories as I thought my type of ideas won't fit into anything I can live off. Now I'm cooking up a way to get back to creative writing so I can be published.

I have a few questions both of the definition of what I'm planning to write and of how to publish online

cut the save you spaceCollapse )

Sorry if these are terrible newbie questions, but that's what I am. Thank you so much in advance for any tips and help.

 hi it's nice to meet you, I am not new to LJ really but I have only really just started using it properly, and I have never really joined communities before so this is a first.

I fell in love with fantasy at a very young age, and am currrently trying my first novel length story.  I have been working on it for around 4 years, not solidly of course.  It is a labour of love and any feed back on it would be greatly appreciated.  But lets put that aside for now.

I love reading fantasy and am greatly looking forward to see what this community has to offer :)

Much love
PM

Greetings to all who dwell here.

I'm new to the group.  My experiences with lj is limited to watching my friends use it and giving a few of them names to use. 

Well, onto the good stuff.  I love writing and I love fantasy.  I've got a novel length fantasy novel written and shopping around for publishers. I'll post a summary or teaser here when/if it gets published. I also like to write short bits that will probably get posted here.

Thanks everyone for reading,

CJ
