Your title is actually funny hahaha. We do have a lot of writers in the forums / introductions post. Nice of you to quick make your forums ~debut~ before you join the ~dark side~.

The forums do exist and it's so awesome that you dropped by to say hello! Hopefully, we'll see you around in the discussions here too.  peoapproval

You get that typing speed powerup.

How can you be a writer unless you type out all those words unfolding in your mind at 200wpm as one of those Dvorak speed typists?
And then the carpal tunnel.... We have many things on the dark side.  peoEsmile

unnatural is putting it quite lightly my new friend

And to you a pleasant day/evening. We readers are often a sneaky lot. We are here often and long, yet it is only a few of us who are chosen to speak.

What do I like to read? I enjoy fantasy, I was raised reading it after all, sci-fi is never behind, and westerns are something of a newfound passion for me. Lately though the things I like have been pretty all over the place and this is because my preferences are becoming less genre-specific and more about certain periods and conventions of writing, themes, etc. tending towards modernism and postmodernism. I guess you could say nowadays I'm getting into realistic dramas and weird fiction, if you had to assign genres to it.

That aside, thanks for the warm welcome.

Typing speed is already impressive, but carpal tunnel? The power of writers is truly beyond my wildest dreams.

I kid! Welcome to the forums! I adore fantasy and sci-fi. My reasons for writing them are pretty similar to your reasons for reading them, I was raised on them! 

I hope you find lots of great books to read here :)


Thanks! The SFF legacy continues  DrakanGlasses

you can call it what you like, just write the stuff you love!
you'll find readers who enjoy the world your writing of
readers certainly are quiet, i've noticed that too
most threads only get one post for every tenth view xD

Welcome to the Forums. It's always good to see a reader emerge from the darkness. And many before you have made the journey and joined the ranks of authors. May your fingers fly across the keyboard and the fruits of your imagination be spewed forth for all to see. Hope the light isn't too blinding and that you find the Forums a fun experience. Good luck. 

I'll recommend Cinn's beginner's guide https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/111469 even though you're not a beginner. Still, there a lot of good information there.
