    Hi

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Vagrant Tale, Jul 2, 2016.

    Hello everyone. I don't really have a lot to say here. I've always had a dream of writing stories and having other people enjoy them, yet I've never followed up on it. Recently Christopher Paolini visited my city, and I had all 4 of his books signed, which I now keep in a special box. When I met him...he was just a normal guy. It was powerful for me.

    So I thought, "Hey, I'm a normal guy too. I can do that!" So here I am. I am at a period of my life where my normal routine has been shattered, and I'm deciding now how I will look when things are put back together, and working towards my dream of writing great stories is part of what I want to look like.

    But before I go off typing everything and expecting people to read it...I'm going to simply respond to a ton of other things. Wrap my head around articles here, and become a student first.

    Thanks for reading.

    Hi, welcome. A life change can be a good time to focus on a dream and go for it. That way, in years to come, you can look back without the regret of what if, simply a satisfying, 'well, I tried it...'

    Good luck and enjoy getting involved on here.

    Hey there and welcome.
    I haven't been around here that long and I can say that this is a nice crowd of writers you've come upon. Enjoy your stay. Also, enjoy your time writing and learning and writing some more.

    Cool name... I love that game. You've just tempted me into dragging out my Psx. (Another excuse for procrastination.) Ta for that! :D About the only thing this site can't help you with is getting off your butt and doing it.

    Is this a completely fresh start for you, or have you dabbled before?

    I'm sorry, what game are you talking about?

    I've dabbled before, but making decent money let me do a LOT of distractions and excuses. So I suppose this is the first time I've ever taken it as seriously as I am now!
