I doubt many will remember me from the previous version. So now you are making me use my faulty memory.
My real name is Matthew; HD Simplicityy is my Xbox gamertag and what I used in the older LegendFire forum. I first joined in 2016... yes, I will go with that. I had started my first term at Portland State University for, at that time, the Bachelors of Fine Arts for Creative Writing Fiction. The old forum was helpful for learning concurrently with classes. Got a lot of joy looking forward to forum updates probably each day after classes. When the forum went bye, I settled on using the Discord server (I use it a lot anyway), seeing posts on the Facebook page, and later getting critique and learning on Scribophile. I'll use them and this site.
I am writing my first book's second draft; I started that last Monday. I also got the opportunity for my first videogame writing gig at the start of this September, also through Discord. You may remember... or don't remember... I was writing a Tomb Raider fanfiction. Well, I finished it! Shards of the Risen: A Tomb Raider Story. I nearly quit it while on a different writer Discord server. I then realized, you know, it is great to complete a at-that-time big project. Thus, thee years, four months and four days after starting it, I typed the last line. It has stayed in that first draft since, even after posting it to Archive of Our Own.
To wrap up, I got a new job two months ago helping deliver appliances while I build my writing career at home.
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

Alatariel: OMG that picture Mazulla! I'm dying
Oct 18, 2021 13:09:04 GMT -6
Mazulla: Distracting, isn't it? Haha! He makes it so hard to ignore him.
Oct 18, 2021 16:44:14 GMT -6
pelwrath: Don’t know if he’s laughing or barring his teeth to protect the computer.
Oct 18, 2021 20:04:57 GMT -6
Mazulla: Oh, he's definitely being a goof! It's a funny attention-seeking maneuver. Quite dramatic about it, too, always throwing his head back to show those pearly whites.
