  1. I missed the live, but went back and saw it now - the cover looks wonderful! Congratulations P.L
  2. And, my story is up! Thank you to everyone who had such kind words of encouragement. I had a lot of fun of fun writing the story once I got out of my head P.S I took a peek at all the other submissions, and they were all super fun to read.
  3. Version 1.0.0


    Varsha's submission for the January Writer's Battleground prompt.
  4. I was a huge five stones enthusiast when I was little [A game played with well, five stones - here's a video demo. My grandma used to collect stones for me if she saw any she thought would make the game more fun for me, so I have a significant rock collection, but I don't have any pictures to share, unfortunately. Most of them looked like the ones from Drew's pictures above though. They were a lot of fun to play with! ]
  5. Going through final edits on mine. Expecting to post later tonight.
  6. “Kallor shrugged. '[...] I have walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I have commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I have spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?' 'Yes,' [said Caladan Brood.] 'You never learn.” ― Steven Erikson, Memories of Ice
  7. Sounds awesome! Congratulations Kian Looking forward to reading your book when it comes out!
  8. I think I can manage to finish 350 pages before Feb. I would love to beta read your book. I must mention though that this would be my first beta read, so it may not be very helpful for you.
  9. I'm still working on mine. Pretty much my first attempt at writing, so I'm honestly not sure I'll be able to bring it to a point where I won't feel completely stupid for submitting, but I'm going to try Are we targeting Jan 31st as the deadline?
  10. Silence. It flashed from the woodwork and the walls; it smote him with an awful, total power, as if generated by a vast mill. It rose from the floor, up out of the tattered gray wall-to-wall carpeting. It unleashed itself from the broken and semi-broken appliances in the kitchen, the dead machines which hadn’t worked in all the time Isidore had lived here. From the useless pole lamp in the living room it oozed out, meshing with the empty and wordless descent of itself from the fly-specked ceiling. It managed in fact to emerge from every object within his range of vision, as if it—the silence—meant to supplant all things tangible. Hence it assailed not only his ears but his eyes; as he stood by the inert TV set he experienced the silence as visible and, in its own way, alive. Alive! He had often felt its austere approach before; when it came, it burst in without subtlety, evidently unable to wait. The silence of the world could not rein back its greed. Not any longer. Not when it had virtually won. Philip K. Dick - Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
  11. Bran thought about it. 'Can a man still be brave if he's afraid?' 'That is the only time a man can be brave,' his father told him. George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)
  12. 11am pacific would be perfect for me!
  13. Yes! 10 AM preferable to 9AM since I'm in the Pacific timezone, and 7AM sounds a whole lot better tan 6 AM But I can make 9 AM EST work if most people prefer that.
  14. Yay! So excited you'll be joining the readalong Angela! I'm still working my way through Malazan as well - but like you said, the more great books the better BTW - I believe the folks doing a Malazan readalong in this forum are about where you are with the series - There's a discussion on 21st Jan (I think?) for Book 1 Midnight Tides. Would love to see you in some of those discussions as well!!
  15. Sunday mornings work for me!
