Hello! I’m new. Nice to meet you!
I write fantasy and read just about everything. I live off books, coffee, and music. I’m a student and sometimes I take a break from writing to study. I love to read other people’s writing but hide behind things every time someone reads mine. I love to write, and blogging’s pretty cool as well.
So, how’s it going? 🙂May 28, 2018 at 4:59 pm #36552
Hi @fctait and welcome to Story Embers! I’m Evelyn and I live off of books and hot-tea. 😉 It’s going well here I hope it is there.
You said blogging is cool… do you have a blog then?May 28, 2018 at 5:15 pm #36554Brink@nuetrobolt
@fctait, My tiny pet dragon, Vip, and I welcome you.

@evelyn Thanks! And yeah, I blog about books and writing. 😀 There’s a link on my profile if you want to check it out.May 29, 2018 at 5:04 am #36670May 29, 2018 at 6:16 am #36673Aimie@ajaj2000
Hey, F.C welcome to Story Embers 😀
I’m Aimie an eighteen-year-old fantasy writer from Gold Coast, Australia!
I like music too and prefer a chocolate drink (hot or cold) 🙂
I like learning about other peoples’ story projects how did you come up with yours? (Mine are in my profile if you’re curious) 🙂
Your blog seems cool 😀May 29, 2018 at 8:23 am #36676
@ajaj2000 Thanks! Your stories sound really cool, especially the one about the watch that changes time. I’d definitely read that if I found it in a bookstore. 😉
As for how I came up with mine… It’s complicated because so many things inspired different aspects of the story. My biggest inspiration is probably the legend of King Vortigern and Merlin, because I wanted to write about a mage something like young Merlin, but then I also had the idea to write about a hero who has some traits more typical of villains (like being very cool-headed and rational and being genuinely tempted by power) and to write a mentor-pupil relationship where the mentor is actually evil. The story mostly came out of putting those things together in a fantasy world I had already developed for another story.
How did you think of yours?May 29, 2018 at 10:24 am #36687
@fctait Thanks for your blog’s link! And your story sounds really interesting! What are some of your favorite books?May 29, 2018 at 5:30 pm #36789Brink@nuetrobolt
@fctait, the latter seems more likely.

Thank you 😀
That so cool how all your loose ideas came together 🙂
TKOS started as a dream and FF was created after I finished a webcomic one night because I was a bit annoyed how it handled the chosen one trope.
I see you’re from Scotland I have some ancestry from there what is it like?May 30, 2018 at 7:31 am #36889
@evelyn Thanks! My favourite books are Lord of the Rings, the first three Earthsea books (though I found the later ones a bit weird) and Plain Kate and Sorrow’s Knot by Erin Bow. What are your favourites?May 30, 2018 at 7:38 am #36891
@ajaj2000 Starting a story from a dream is really cool! 🙂
I love Scotland. Because it’s part of an island you’re never very far from the sea, which also makes the weather a bit wild and changeable. I love the mix of modern and old culture, like how there are vibrant modern cities with historic castles in them and things like that. There’s also some cool landscapes that I find inspiring for writing fantasy. The downside is that it rains a lot, but most people get used to that. 🙂
What do you like about Australia?May 30, 2018 at 8:46 am #36900
@fctait I’m afraid I haven’t read any of those books except the Lord of the Rings, (which happens to be one of my favorites) I’ll have to add the rest to my reading list!
My favorite books include The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Giver by Lois Lowery, The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, and Bleak House by Charles Dickens.May 30, 2018 at 11:05 am #36929J. Dekreel@dekreelMay 30, 2018 at 1:31 pm #36965
