Wow! Congratulations to Alpha Ori, Spiced! I didn't even know she'd written a book. Good for her! Here's hoping she wins many more. What's the name of her book(s)?

Sounds lush, Nelya- I have just taken my horses out in the pouring rain and wind for a quick zip round the lanes-we're all soaked! But happy.

Hi!

Ultimately, I would like to write romantic fiction, so I am using fanfic as a spring board into that!

If any one has suggestions on how to become a better writer i would appreciate the feed back, as i am slightly unsure of how my words come across. And I will gladly respond to everyone!

I sorta like to fill in the blanks in some of Tolkien's characters. Like Lothiriel or now I am thinking about why Boromir and Theodred were 41 and both not married... seems not to make sense so I want to fix it!! LOL!

I have a lot of time to think so my imagination wanders, and fiction is all about asking what if!

I want to put my characters in positions that will make them act irrationally. Conflict between characters makes the story better! I don't want to read a story where two people fall in love and everything is easy. 'Cause love ain't easy!!

I'm not a real huge fan of Elves... I like men. Barbarians, in particular. Fuck Prince Charming, eh?

I'm not a kid, i'm older, so i think i have good perspective. Although i can be serious, i try not to take myself too seriously!

I'll probably never be as prolific as a Nora Roberts or as descripitve or philosphical as Diana Gabaldon, but I don't want to write Formula Romance like Julie Garwood. It's like reading the same story over and over. Yuck. Think outside the box.

I believe there is a big difference between being a writer and a storyteller. Writer's do methodical stuff like non fiction and journalism. Story tellers tell tales of the lives of people and events that shape lives.

Do the best job you can and try your hardest when you write. Take your work seriously but remember not to take yourself too seriously. People, Middle earth is not a real place!

Just a quick note on the Assassin's Creed:

If you're reading this and expect Eomer to be like Edward Cullen, stop reading now. If you're under 25 yrs old, understand that not all men are Prince Charming. Men can be rude, selfish, and cold even to people they care deeply about. My Eomer can be a jerk, and an ass. He'll sleep with who he wants when he wants and not apologize for it.
