August Greetings

Post by A_Sinister_Lover » Thu Aug 02, 2018 6:38 am

Greetings Collective,
I'd like to begin with a small note for the noble admins of this website. Within hours of joining your little guild, I've been made to happily admit that I've spied - with my eager eye - quite a few interesting pieces that have proved delightfully refreshing reads. Even without the first introductions, it seems I'm destined to be in the midst of excellent company and creative talents - to the credit of all the fantastic personalities involved in organizing this collective. Words are one of my greatest weaknesses I hope you'll dearly and insistently exploit. I trust you'll believe me when I say I'm glad to be a part of your team.
To the rest of the uncultivated masses, I'm an amateur author currently locked in the process of writing my first work at the insistent suggestion of one of my first "fans," as it were - without the necessary encouragement of which I'd certainly be hard-pressed to pick up my literary pen otherwise. A little birdie said I'm too humble in wielding this strange little weapon reputedly mightier than the sword itself. I told the thing it doesn't hurt to be humbled on occasion; especially when the occasion is as promising as this.
In keeping with tradition, I also hope I shouldn't redefine the concept of fun by supplying a few fun facts to you: 1. I nearly died once while pursuing one of my favorite hobbies; 2. I've far too many hobbies for my own good; 3. The key to my heart is maintained diligently by the beautiful mistress of language. That is to say, I love words and am a powerlifter who once crashed round twice my weight on my chest and somehow lived to tell of it. I trust you'll appreciate the living zombie you have before you here.
My other hobbies mark me out to be a voracious reader, an occasional poet, a fitness enthusiast, a passionate conversationalist, an amateur voice artist, an avid scribbler; and perhaps least significantly, an interested traveler whenever I have the time. If there's one interest I've picked up from my diverse experiences, and decidedly prefer over the rest, it is giving an eye and ear to modest and unusual talent.
I've tried my hand at all genres and am comfortable with most, though most of my heart and skill lie in that of medieval, historical fantasy. I write about romance, intrigue; plotting and politicking; monsters and men; drama, suspense; action and adventure, and even comedy if my mind's light enough for it. I believe in selling a wholesome, fun experience to my creative readership - something I'll undoubtedly come to expect and experience here.
Regards,
Zombie Out. :biggrin:

One of my favorite intros. Big welcome aboard, Sinister. I'm Nico, and I also have a ridiculous amount of hobbies, so we've got that it common :wink: You'll be getting a welcome package that outlines the site, but ask freely should you need help with anything.

That was an excellent intro, L!

I'm excited to see your work on the site, but first, the newb guide!



To start you off, you might want to check out our Newbie Guide. It's a great first step to orienting yourself and seeing what the Collective has to offer, plus our rules, cause those are important. If you find a question or concern of yours isn't covered in the guide, feel free to track down a member of staff, we are the ones with green or purple usernames, we are pretty easy to spot.

If you want to get your feet wet, check out our Always Open RP's. These are usually run by people looking for writers to join their little adventures, great way to get things going .

If you already have an idea for an RP or are looking to see some rp's that haven't started yet, check out the Interest Checks section. This is where people post up an idea and try to gauge if there is any interest in it before starting a proper OOC thread.

If you want to chat with the other members of the forum, feel free to join our Discord server.


So that should be a good way to start you off. Remember, if you have any questions feel free to ask, we won't bite.

So, what genre is this book you're writing?

Heyo, and welcome!

I have to say that intro was a thousand times better than mine. Well done sir!

I am a huge fan of weight lifting, and just the other day i threw a dumbbell at my mom. Some people need supervision am I right?

You should hop in the discord my dude!

Many thanks for the warm welcome and the keen compliments. I've been busily exploring the website for a while and navigation hasn't really proved an issue so far; I'll message the mods should any others arise. I would say I'd be interested in a forum for aspiring and professional authors, and I believe the Writer's Guild provides just that.
As for my own work, here's a preliminary copy of the cover a friend's prepared with some help. It intends to be a dark fantasy page-turner. I hope you like it.
