Writers' Journal

Hey there, just starting out and working on an extended project. I write fantasy, with a realistic edge to it.

The premise:

The diary of a trainee, or side-kick as he learns what it means to be under the shadow of a hero and where his place in the world is. Marty is a recently graduated soldier training under an Ordinator, named Gracon, who is a decorated warrior.

evidence0flife is a new community looking for talented poets. It is not bound by any genre limitations, and anyone can join, but you must submit a poem for grading before you're allowed unlimited posting and voting rights.

It seems like a very good, very alive community, and since this one seemed to be slowing down, I figured I might suggest it.

Current mood: mellow.
