  1. Hello everybody!
    Glad to be a part of the site!
    I haven't actually been active on a forum for a long time, but I was hoping to find a community of writers who could help me to grow as a one!
    Though I've been writing for a long time, this summer I finally made the leap into writing a full novel. I've been busy with my college studies so progress has been slow, but it's sitting at around 35,000 words. I'll talk more about it on another post, but I can't wait to chat with everyone about all things fantasy!

    Hail and well-met Struggling Unnecessarily
    Good to have you here.
    This is a great place to learn and share so I hope you find it as supportive and helpful as I do.
    Leap on in and enjoy.
    And BTW... Probably the best username on the site... I just wonder what we'll end up shortening it to?
  3. Thanks a lot! I hope you don't struggle unnecessarily coming up with one.
  4. I'll take a shot at shortening it. . . Welcome Struggs!

    Congrats on getting the novel to that point! That's already a fine achievement. Slow going is ok too, just keep at it!

    Here's hoping the site and this awesome community can help you, in some small way, get there.

  5. Struggs! I actually really like how that sounds.

    Welcome! I'm also writing my first full novel, 20,000 odd words so far but very slow progress. I can write several thousand words in a day, then nothing for 2 weeks...
    Just out of nosyness, what are you studying at college?
  7. I'm sort of an eclectic mix of interests. I'm a history major, with a minor in sociology. I have also been heavily involved in theater, and the art department at my university. I also do some work with the political science people. Makes for a good bit of confusion because none of the people in any of those departments really know what I am, though it comes with the distinct advantage of being invited to everything as a result.

    I am very busy. It is hell.

    Sounds interesting! I can relate to not feeling particularly attached to a department - my degree was in Natural Sciences, and the way it was organised meant I didn't belong to any department until my final year, and had lectures etc. across multiple different departments. I also did a ton of extra curricular stuff, so was very, very busy.
