Hello guys Smile

After having tortured the folks at GOI's workshop with my very first attempts at fan fiction, and hogging up 50 chapters of post space, it was suggested I might throw myself to the wolves and see how it goes. (Please note: The GOI crew are not responsible for my horrible sentence structure)

I started with a small story, well it was supposed to be small.....

Fifty chapters later, not only did I have an epic, I had a series as well. I'm not sure how series post here, I'll attempt not to mess up the nice system. If there is anything the moderators want or need me to know, I feel certain they will at some point, poke me with a sharp stick.

I've enjoyed reading the great stories here, some have kept me up all night because I had to keep reading. I hope my attempts will be enjoyed as well Smile

Welcome Ixladra!

Series are probably best posted as separate stories, making it clear in the title that they are part of a series. Same with books or tomes. A series of drabbles on the other hand can post well as one 'story', each drabble becoming a chapter. Hope this helps.

I'm not familiar with GOI so I'll have to ask, which particular fandom do you write in?

Again, welcome!

do.

I second Do on my curiousity fandom you write in, I somehow think Harry potter since the abbrevation of GOI (I have no idea what that is/means too), but it makes me think of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire... somehow. Hmmm. :c)

At any rate, I wish you a happy time here, put your feet up, read, review and write. But most of all: have lots of fun!

After a brief web hunt (okay, so I cheated) I'm thinking we've got another Lego-Lass aboard the good ship OSA. (GoI = Garden of Ithilien, a Legolas fan fiction site).

Welcome, Ixladra. Hello Once you post, don't forget to shamelessly promote yourself in the Shameless Self Promotion thread.

I must say, I quite like being numbered among the wolves Twisted Evil but, one must wonder, are we "the wolf that one hears" or the those that "one fears"? Whichever, given half a chance you'll hear a lot from us. So post away, Ixladra, and if it's concrit you want, it is concrit you'll get.

Just remember, Ithilien remains forever Gondor. Very Happy

Welcome,

NB

Thanks for the welcome guys.

Nope didn't frighten me, actually considering this is my first attempts at something like this, I can use all the wolves I can get.

Something along the lines of what does not kill you makes you stronger? If I can take critique and use it, it will only (hopefully) make the next one better.

Besides, I have chocolate and coffee and am therefore invincible!
