Cheers to long lost friends and hopefully new ones!
Call me by Schaefer11235
I am obsessed with Pirates and their golden eras of sailing within their cultures around the world. Sailing is, I believe the essence of "Teamwork Makes The Dreamwork," believe it!
I am also obsessed with Shonen manga and anime. There is nothing like nerding out with your kids in their own nerdness. (We just finished all 500 episodes and 13? movies of Naruto)
I work in IT-- No I can't fix your laptop
My dream is to write a novel that is a mash up of Joyce, Melville, and space fantasy. However, everything I write turns more and more technical as I go. I really am looking forward to interacting with all of you!
I love passing on my nerdiness to my 7 year old (my 2 year old is immune at the moment). We love Avatar the Last Airbender and Pokemon (yea we're basic) and Miyazaki films. I was her to see Sailor Moon because I know she'll be obsessed.
Can't wait to see some of your work. Gotta love some space opera and pirates! Do you have any space pirate stories??
Wow, a belated welcome, sorry about that, Shaefer!
Aw, man, IT have my sympathies. My poor husband is in IT, and the guy tries to go on vacation or take a day off, and somebody is like "Can you see what's going on with my laptop?" Yeah, ya'll need signs or t-shirts or something that announce "Call the Geek Squad."
And don't worry about technical. Write your story. If parts are too technical, an editor can help you sort it out.

ScienceGirl: It's okay. In about three weeks my work is going to be crazy and I won't be able to keep up as much. We all contribute what we can

FoxxGlove: From my personal viewpoint, I'm trying to post in terms of enjoyment and readability rather than volume. I don't think it will be more than once a day though, if that.

pelwrath: My last post for Letters, was much easier for me.

Caulder Melhaire: Seriously, don't stress too much in the solo posts lol

Caulder Melhaire: That whole setup was designed so that folks could tell their own fun stories at their own pace

FoxxGlove: Great advice, Caulder. I love that we can go our own way on solo quests.

Alatariel: When you click on the forum you want, at the top is a "create thread" button
Jul 26, 2021 19:15:11 GMT -6
Alatariel: it can be hard to see sometimes. It's right above the "search" bar

pelwrath: Had an idea for Litterbug Junction but after some further research, I'm dropping it.
