Hey! The names Elfy, and I've been writing for a little while, but really want to start writing more often and basically get as much experience as possible. I've ran my own (small) forum, which eventually died....multiple times. I really enjoy writing, and wish to pursue it in the future as a hobby, or possibly a career. I'd just like to get to know some users before I start, so if you want to introduce yourself, then I'd really appreciate it.

PS. I need a good signature, any suggestions??

Hey, Elfy! I'm Andy, and I like writing fantasy, but have yet to publish anything. I'm also one of the two admins here. So,

For your signature, put in some famous quotes. And a word count meter for your book.

What genres and such do you write in?

I normally write fantasy, but might dabble every now and then in realistic stories.
For the most part, I start writing novels, and never come anywhere near finishing them, which is pretty much why I joined this site. I figure the more I read others works, the more I myself will be inspired to write.

Ah. When you post a story (if it's fantasy), feel free to PM me for a critique on it.

You either click the little thing on the far corner of the reply box when you're in advance, or, type this (only with your own numbers) :

Word Count: 10000/100000

(Oh... Um. Quote me, you'll see the thing you need to type.)

I give you permission to copy my multi-brained sig!

Or, maybe not. But still, it's nice seeing another serious writer.

I'm Raffy. Enjoy your stay

Does it update on my own, or is that my ever tedious job?
