Hi! I'm completely new to this forum, having just discovered it yesterday. However I'm not new at creative writing - I started writing when I was about 12, have dozens of unfinished stories and I have already posted one finished and two unfinished stories on the internet with some mixed reactions. I'm from the Czech Republic, so unfortunately (for you), I write my stories in Czech and you will propably never be able to read them (unless they are published and popular enough to be translated ). Just a quick summary of the three stories I have made public: (I wanted to post links to them as well, but I was not alowed to.) Rebirth (unfinished) Rebirth is one of my first stories. It's about a sleeper ship's crew that's crashed on an alien planet, struggling for survival. It's really horrible and I don't want to ever read it again The Secret of the Nebula (unfinished) That's much better. This time I went for a humorous style and it turned out to be quite popular. The beginning is about two scout fighter pilots who discover something strange in a nebula. The rest is still waiting to be written (and will forever be waiting). The Ricochet Incident (finished!) I like this one, but somehow it wasn't that popular. Maybe because it's serious again? It is about a rogue starship captain, who tries to undermine a treaty between humans and aliens by destroying the aliens' abassador's ship and about his XO who tries to stop him. As you can see I write mostly sci-fi, but I have ambitions for fantasy and alternate history as well. I'd like to discuss some aspects of my stories here. Hope we'll get along well Nice to meet you all!
