It is very good to see you all. Many of you may know me, and many of you may not. I can barely remember names, so forgive me. I'm an oldy here, and proud to say it. I used to come here for comfortable talk and drinks. (A long story, of course..... That is why I am here, no? Long stories?) Well, I am here for a different reason. I am writing a book and I plan to make it so good that it will change people, like LOTR. However, I can bet millions of people are saying the same thing I am, so let me present myself. It's going to be mostly fantasy and I have a basic web of ideas and I've written 50 pages so far. Look, it is more than a dream, more than a hope, more important than anything I've ever done before. I need all the help I can get from anyone. I'm not only an aspiring reader and writer, more than INspired, but I am simply a hopeful. I mean to change that. Written but never published, mentioned but never honored and dreamed, but never wished. With the help, wisdom and advice of many of you friends, I can do this. I may not be the best writer, but I certainly will be among them in my life. I am not talking about a child's dream, I'm not talking about a pact we used to make when we were kids. I mean to do it, I mean to become someone. This isn't just about a book. It's about a Legacy, about a new bible, a new sensation for those who feel the wind that pours over the mythical land that I create. Who understands my call? Or, more importantly, who will answer and join me in my... well... - Due to an absence of a better word - Quest?

I wish you all the best on your quest type thing. :)

Another quest Merancapeman? My wool's only just grown back after the last one! ;)
So you're starting at the top huh? "One Book to Change Them All!"
You don't want to start smaller? Short stories for semi-prozines or ezines or something like that? It helps to have a list of prior publications when you send the "One Book to Change Them All!" to the publisher.

Merancapeman, I see you've traded your piano-playing for book-writing. Best of luck with your book, mate. ;)

Alright, fellows. I thank you... Well, I WOULD reply to the story synopsis deal, but I just don't think I could describe it. I could SEND someone wha I have so far, but I don't know who would WANT it, considering it's almost 50 pages so far (I have about 25 or so pages redone and edited). I could write other things and publish them, but I don't really know how, don't know where and I don't have money. I mean, hell, you shouldn't have to pay too much money to show people your creative side, you know? Yes, bud, it's times new roman and double spaced.
P.S. I could SEND someone a synopsis, considering the only way I reach this site is by school at 7:30 in the morning; I cannot write one on the internet. Is anyone interested?
