Whats up everyone? I came across this board the other night, and after spending a couple hours reading various threads and posts I've decided to join. I have always been interested in a good book ever since I was a little kid. This board appears to be a great place to develop my writing, as well as a tool to find new books to read. From what I've seen so far the community is real helpful, and there are some talented people who use this board. I'm looking forward to meeting new people on the forums and helping one another become the writers we want to be. I'm currently enrolled at UCF in Orlando Florida, and throughout college I've taken composition and creative writing classes. However, I have never actually wrote a piece out of my educational career. This semester I am only taking one class so the amount of free time I have is mind boggling. I want to put my time to good use and legitimately start writing. Fantasy is the genre where my mind excels. My ultimate goal is to write an epic fantasy series, which I have been creating for awhile now in my mind. Sci-fi, mystery, comedy, and romance are all areas of writing that fall under epic fantasy. So in the mean time I want to write smaller pieces of these genres to practice my writing before I start my main novels. stoked to meet you all! P.S. an important question I have is that if we post our material on here, is it protected from plagiarism and copy right?
