    Happy New Year (she said, through gritted teeth...)

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by jannert, Dec 31, 2016.

    Just wanted to wish everybody on the forum a happy Hogmanay, and a Happy New Year. In order to make that happen, we'll need a huge stroke of luck and some very hard work. But here's hoping. Meanwhile, enjoy whatever celebrations you may be participating in. Or just enjoy some peace and quiet at home with a good book! Either yours, or somebody else's.

    See you on the other side.

    Yep, Happy New Year to everyone; hope it`s the best one ever.
    This year we`ve got a few good films to watch, a lot more books to read, and a bucket load of words to write. :D

    I've got a funny little story to share with you all this New Year.

    When I was playing around with my modded Skyrim:Remastered, I decided to create Mowgli for shits and giggles. I spawned him in the wilderness armed with only a bow and arrow and guess what came barreling out from behind the trees to attack him??

    A BEAR!

    Baloo? You've never seen/read The Jungle Book? The irony that a bear is one of Mowgli's best friends in the story??

    Happy New Year to all! I hope we all meet our writing goals this year, whether it's completing a first draft or submitting your first piece for publication. Good luck! :)

    ^ Must've been too much. That said, I drank four beers and don't even have a headache.

    A part of me wants to take in-game photos of Skyrim and Oblivion and superimpose Disney songs on them as captions, but rewrite the lyrics so they're more fitting for The Elder Scrolls. Make it into comics and post it here.

    HAPPY NEW YEARS!

    I do believe I've been bitten by the writing bug.
    Instead of hanging out with friends last night... I spent the evening alone, editing and outlining. No hangover.

    I believe Ian McKellen survived 2016, so, you know, it wasn't all that bad...

    Happy New Year everyone! :)
