    Hello all,

    My name is Lars van Weert, also known as Dr.Dorkness. I am 21 years old and I write. But then again I would not be here if I did not. Like most writers I have reached a Writersblock at the moment. That is why I searched for fantasy writing and I ended up here.

    About the nickname, I got it from my friends. why? well, because I know al kinds of fun facts (or just facts) none of them know. so at parties I told such facts and most of my friends start laughing. so I'm thinking why are they al laughin, and so I asked them. They laughed at how I told the stories behind the facts. One of my friends then said we should call you dr. Dorkness. because you know all these things and you tell it in such a fun way. and the nickname stuck and now i use it for things like these forums.

    Greetings From The Netherlands!

    this time of year it is pretty nice yes, but most of the year it rains allot.

    plus it is what you are used to. for me it is very common that we are the country of drugs, prostitutes and other things that are illegal in other countries. (at least that is what most of the world thinks when they hear of the netherlands. XD). You (Mdnight Falling) come from Washington State which is very far and cool and exotic to me as my country is to you XD.

    Hi Lars, and welcome.
    Hope this place helps with your writer's block, or at least gives you something to distract yourself with when you should be writing.

    I went to the Netherlands a couple of years ago and really like it. Not where you are though, spent most of my time around Amsterdam and Volendam. I suppose a lot of people from other countries would associate your country with those things. Every place has its stereotypes!

    Happy writing!

    @Kate: Most foreign people don't go to my small town. and i can't say i blame them. we do not have much for tourists. we have some cool history but that is about it. about my writers block I write every day but at this point i'm somewhere in the story where I do not know what should happen next. XD

    Welcome Lars!

    You are in good company here, as there are more than a few dorks among us. ;)

    I started this site (in part) to ease my own writer's block, and it's been a tremendous help. Talking to other fantasy writers is great for getting the creative juices flowing again. We'll have you back on track in no time.

    That's the danger of writing forums - they suck up your time until you forget all about actual writing :p But eh, it's fun!

  12. Bah it should be! Forks... is in Washington >.> AND Bry has pictures of him by the waterfall you see in certain shots of the movie.. He's going to take me there x.x AND we have Fake Stone Henge LOL I saw fake cause yeah the real ones obviously not in america LOL... But seriously nu... Washington is boring like all the us... Cept Vegas... Vegas rocks if you're a tourist LOL everywhere else in the us sucks.. it's boring and New york is over crowded and Washington is the land of rain lol and wind o_O... Vegas is the land of Eternal Sun it sits on your head really x.x I've lived there >.< But you all have different cultures and omg I want to see places like Den mark where Hans Christian Andrew grew up and see that beautiful mermaid statue in real life... not in the ashtray my grand parents got me when I was 8 x.x I want to see the canals of Holland and the REAL stone henge and the landscapes of New zealand on something other than a movie or rerun of Xena or Hercules -.-. Different countries and cultures is a passion of mine they're far more interesting then mine since well my family were immigrants LOL but no one remembers where they come from anymore so I want to know about everyplace I can >^.^<
