    Hello all, a quick intro, if I can find the words...
    Well, I'm hoping I can get myself into some sort of ideally-daily routine of writing something, even if only a couple of paragraphs - I guess that's the best place to start with building the discipline, really.
    Heroic fantasy has spanned a lifetime for me, beginning with David Gemmell, through to Peter V Brett and Brent Weeks most recently, tho I guess it all depends on whether, and then how, you define all the branches of fantasy.
    At the moment, I'm reading - again - China Mieville's Bas Lag series and, before that, finished a re-read of Clive Barker's Weaveworld, one of the biggest-impact books I can remember from my youth.
    I'll leave it there for now. It's nice to be here...!

    Welcome. I'm new as well and having a routine that includes writing is essential for me. I usually will finish anything I'm doing at least 1 hour before I am calling it a night and then will use that 1 hour to write. So far it has helped me immensely.

    Welcome! I was unfamiliar with a couple of the authors you mentioned and decided to look them up. The books look interesting, if a little scary, but I'm going to give them a shot! I don't usually read horror so we'll see how it goes. :)

    Thanks for your reply - I hadn't actually thought of them that way but, on reflection, yep, I guess there's a bit of a scare factor in what I like to read. China Mieville is really worth a read, but aim for his pure fantasy books. For sheer creativity he's pretty much unbeatable (IMO). Clive Barker's always had the scare angle in what he writes, from what I can remember.
