    Greetings :)

    I signed up about a week ago, after searching for a good forum on fantasy related readings. I've more recently got into the fantasy genre, and it's quickly becoming my favorite. I'm a bit of a bookworm..some of my favorite books are "A Song of Ice and Fire" (saga) by George RR Martin, Stardust by Niel Gaiman, Lud-In-The-Mist by Hope Mirrlees, The Hobbit by Tolkien, and many others.

    Aside from reading, I'm an unpublished writer who's currently working on a novella (that is my target, for now). While I may or may not try to get this one published, it's been a huge milestone in my life of writing, and I feel that it's just the beginning of what I hope to be a career..or in the least, a huge hobby. I already have a concept for my next work, which will be a fantasy novel. The one I'm currently working on is more on the psychological horror side.

    Anyway..my name is Joe, I'm 24, and live in a small town in Washington state (US). I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time here, and perhaps sharing some of my work, and reading others!

    Also..if anyone has a librarything account, feel free to add me! Always looking for new collections to look at. This is my account:

    http://www.librarything.com/profile/twilightnocturne

    If you don't have one, I suggest signing up for one. I really like it, anyway :p

    So yeah..nice to meet you all, and such!

    Brightest Blessings..
    Joe.

    Thanks, though I'm not sure I have any sanity left anyway :p

    I've read the Twilight series, but mainly because I live in Port Angeles, which was featured in the book..and we're never featured in any thing! Haha. To be honest, the series wasn't quite my thing, but it was still enjoyable. I thought the last book was the best.

    Thanks for the welcome btw! :)

    Thank you all :D

    Thanks (on both things)! I was bored this afternoon and made my sig/av.

    Yes, I am from the Pacific Northwest, a small town called Port Angeles. Nice town..though not a ton to do when it comes to entertainment.

    Drinks you say? Awesome! :D

    Well, my story is about halfway through I think. It started as a simple short story, though I ended up scrapping it and rewriting it. I'm happy with the way it's turning out, and for me, I think it's my best writing. I'm not sure if you're familiar with a game called Silent Hill, but some of the inspiration I used for this story (called Documents of Grief..atleast right now) was drawn from certain aspects of the game. Plot-wise it isn't similar..but I used some of the horror elements of it..empty town..strange fog..etc. All in all, I'm happy in the way it's going..but it is a bit morbid and depressing, haha. I'll post a chapter of it soon..and hopefully I can get some feedback. I'm kind of at that stage where some feedback could definitely help!

    Anywho..thanks for the welcome, and it's good to be here.
