Legendfire... now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time. I'm very glad to see the site back up and running! It's been a heck of a year, so it's nice to have some good news.
Anyway, my name is Dalski! I'm already seeing plenty of names I recognize, so I hope some of you guys remember me. I wasn't an LF "OG" but I was a Moderator of the Literature Discussion board and ran a LegendFire Book Club for a while. Those were good times!
Personally, I have always had a profound love for writing, but I'm an even bigger fan of reading. Unfortunately since my son was born I haven't sat down and actually WROTE anything, but I 100% plan on getting back into the saddle.
When it comes to reading, my genres of choice are typically "literature", literary fiction, whatever you want to call it, science fiction, fantasy, magic realism, classics, etc. For writing, my influences range from Haruki Murakami to Brandon Sanderson with many in-between.
Dalski! I saw your name at the bottom under "newest member" and was so happy! Glad you found us again. And congrats on the baby boy!! Since LF ended I had another baby girl. So two little ones, now. Though my first is now 7, which isn't so little anymore. *Bursts into tears* What they say is true, as a parent the days are long but the years are short.

Alatariel: My first time really looking at them all, and I agree! So good!

FoxxGlove: Ack....hate it when I've checked and double checked and even triple checked to make sure all is good, only to find out I submitted an entry that has errors. ACK......

Alatariel: Always! No matter how many time I read through mine, there will always be something someone picks up on that I missed

pelwrath: I have learned to accept that I’ll have errors, it’s a given. Only do my best to minimize the number of errors.

Mazulla: Same here! Why is it we only notice these things once they're submitted?!

Alatariel: Honestly if it's something small I won't take off points because we're all human.

FoxxGlove: Going to adopt the same policy, Alatariel. Such wise words.

pelwrath: It's been a few weeks but I had an idea for a 100-word story, and posted.

Mazulla: Your 100 word entry is great, Pelwrath. I don't have any ideas nailed down yet. I seem to always think on it a few days and sometimes don't post til the last day.

pelwrath: Mazulla, thank you for your kind words. In truth, I didn’t think I’d have a story for ‘crisp’, that I’d like. While cleaning the windows and screens for winter, the idea came to me. The day was a very cloudy one but for a few minutes the sun did shine.

Mazulla: When you're trying to put together some critiques, but your 80-90lb dog keeps throwing himself in your lap... And keeps looking at me and smiling. You can see this goof here: i.imgur.com/8UvQpbD.jpg?1
