    Greetings

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by ashurbanipal, Jun 20, 2016.

    Hello,

    After recently deciding to try writing fiction more seriously, I have decided to join this seemingly friendly and useful forum. Most of my writing to date has been academic, and it is certainly a big challenge to move into fiction. More specifically, I find it difficult moving from 'academic narrative' to 'story narrative' mode where the progression of plot and character are more important than presenting an argument.

    My main interests are ancient history, politics, and literature. I would probably describe my current writing as somewhere between historical fiction, fantasy and general fiction.

    I hope to learn from others in the forum and provide help where I can.

    Thanks,

    Salaam and Shalom

    If you're a dab hand at ancient history @ashurbanipal maybe you could dig into these threads and advise @King Arthur with his current WIP; he's posted an interesting query or two. Oh, welcome btw.

    I thought it was you seeking the historical garb help? Apologies if I'm wrong.

    Thanks all. The area of history I'm most familiar with is Mesopotamia and the Arabian Peninsula. Happy to help if anybody is interested in this area.
