    Greetings,
    I just joined the forum and will try to keep this short. I'm on here to befriend fans of fantasy and to add to my experience as I continue aspiring towards writing and self-publishing in the future. For a while, I specialized in writing short horror scripts and a couple of them actually got produced. Unfortunately, due to many negative experiences in the film industry, I decided to pull out of screenwriting and focus on honing my skills where I'd have more creative control. I feel that writing my own book would be more comfortable since I wouldn't have to adjust the story to budgetary constraints or worry about a producer tampering with the intended portrayal. So, after taking some time to really think things over and decisively narrow things down, I came to the conclusion that fantasy was going to be my primary focus. I'm into anything from cynical antiheroes and malevolent wizards to rainbow colored unicorns and talking rabbits. Hopefully, I'm in the right place.

    Hey there @sauron85 - welcome to TFF! Definitely the right place for you!
    Have you ever thought about combining horror and fantasy? That came to mind when I read your post, about having worked in the film industry and then switching to writing books. Fantasy horror sounds awesome (because I love both). :D

    Hey Firiath, thanks for the welcome. I've considered many things and haven't 100% set my foot on any genre yet, but that's an option. I purchased a bunch of books to read this year and most of them are children's fantasy. Still, that doesn't guarantee anything. My taste is all over the place. :confused:

    Hi I'm pretty new to this as well. Good luck on your writing. It sounds very interesting. I love reading fantasy and horror fantasy might be just as good.
