Similar I think! It's meant to be cloudy here but no rain forecast so I think a walk to start with, then some writing time

Not really, but the weather is supposed to be quite mild and nice. Probably relax and write and go for a couple of walks. You?

I was going to say the same as Nelya, Karlmir. Do you have a laptop or pc that has a voice activation- don't know what it's called but don't give up writing , whatever you do.

I'm pretty uncomplicated.  As a writer I love elves in the late First to early Third Age, though it's not a hard and fast rule and I'll read pretty much anything. For me, fanfiction is about telling a tale featuring characters I know and love/hate, discovering new angles to view them from and new situations they might find themselves in. Maybe that's why I like slash? Now there's a thought....! Also, it's about loving the whole process of writing, something I’ve done since I was in junior school. I can't imagine it not being part of my life.

It's worth mentioning that I write my characters in several different 'verses, which means while they stay true to the core of how I see them (at least I hope so), the stories don't all necessarily fit together.  Please check story notes and labels.

Personal details: wife, mother, live in Cape Town, South Africa, have two dogs and a cat, like reading, painting, listening to music (pop, rock, jazz, classics), taking walks along the beach - and writing.

Title: The Boys of Summer by Keiliss
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 7]
Summary:

This is not the story of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, a vast tale of a battle to rival the Battle of the Somme in our own time, with all its moments of terror and heroism (plus dragons, balrogs, and the death of a king). This is just about Gildor, son of Lalwen, and Glorfindel of the House of the Golden Flower (which Gildor assures me sounds better in Quenya) and a little of their experience during those six days of horror.
