Hello everybody, I hope you are all well and are having a great start to the New Year. I was advised to make a thread to say hello, so here I am! My real name is Larry but as you can see my forum name is Generation. I've always enjoyed writing with friends and at school to pass the time but before I have never considered doing it seriously. I've always loved telling tall tales to my friends and creating stories in my head to amuse my shelf. I've only recently decided to put those stories into words. There are so many stories in so many different genres that I want to tell that I found it hard to start writing. For now I've settled on the Fantasy genre, but hopefully in the months and years to come I be able to expand and excell in other genres as well. Since this is a Writing Forum I'd better tell you all about my favourite writers: Mervyn Peake, George RR Martin, Umberto Eco, Charles Dickens, Stephen King, Edward Rutherford and Oscar Wilde are the writers that I admire the post. I can tell stories half as good as theirs I'll be happy. Thank you and I hope to have a pleasant future posting alongside you all!
