Dear writers, you are so much ahead of me. I hope you don't mind me posting here a few segments of my writing, if you can call it so. I would really like your comments as honest and straight forward as good writer usually is. We are thinking about making The Megalith in to a movie and it is got to be worth doing.

An ancient Tall City stronghold at the Land of Aisti, sand dunes, bog pools, megalithic stone patterns, and thatch roofed farms are reflected from a round stone that is hanging on a dirty chest.
