Topic: What are you guys writing? Feel free to post here.

I'm new here on the site and i joined with the intention of writing more than anything else, but now. I know it might seem a bit out of place for me to say this on a fantasy forum, but i'm not an "elves, wizards and mages" guy, or at least i don't like to write about them, because i do like me a good Lord of the Rings type of thing. What i like about the realm of fantasy when it comes to creating stuff isn't sticking to the classic fantasy formula, but to create my own stuff, from the ground up. I'm currently writing a book called "The Mostest Epicer Adventure: The Seven Orbs", (typo on purpose btw) and it's more of a story-driven, silly, yet serious story in which a lot of questions and mysteries get answered later on. If anyone's looking for a different type of fantasy book, and if you have time, feel free to check it out; it would be nice. However, that's not the main reason of this topic. I want you guys to leave me your stories/books/whatever you're writing here, and despite what i said earlier, if your thingy has elves, wizards and mages in it, i'll still be interested.

Although I'm done with writing the story, I'm still thinking of making some edits to it. I present to you my novella, The Knight of Chimera, with 11 chapters it's probably my best take on fantasy so far. It had won First Place in the Novella Writing Contest set up by publishingnetwork (a.k.a. Ronin Publishings), and as a result "The Knight of Chimera" will soon be in print and published onto the Amazon website for sale. Check it out while it's still free, or grab a copy once it's on Amazon!

Well, that is amazing S.K. InkSlinger. You have set the bar quite high but I hope to get there too! You both may have something that could be worth my time reading. I have developed many, many stories and even have seven in their beginning stages online. Yes... Seven! Perhaps I am being silly. Either way, I have recently become serious about one in particular. I call it my "2017 project", although what I have planned is rather lengthy and is sure to take much longer to complete. Much of my time already goes to working a full time job! I already know how I want to progress this story, though there will be plenty of smoothing out details. So far, I have a simple prologue chapter for viewing. It is called THE MAGICIAN'S FLAG and I invite everyone to give it a read! The story is told in the far future where magic has been DISCOVERED. A story complete with rivals and foe. But the twist, they are not warring but competing!

Wow, congrats S. K. InkSlinger. I'm currently writing a story that revolves around 8 characters from 4 nations, set in a hostile world inhabited by monsters called 'beasts'. It's still in early stages, but do check it out if you're interested: https://www.booksie.com/490747-tales-of … hra-book-1

I think there's nothing wrong with a fantasy setting without magic/elves. I believe fantasy is simply something that is somehow different to the world we live in, whether it's because of different creatures or laws of reality or even ways of life.

Not any elves, dwarfs or fairies here. It's the Red people, Stone people, Fire people, Air people, Ice people, and many more.

And there are some special, mysterious people.

A world with different national kingdoms and some really big islands

And did I mention that most of the main characters can fly? And shoot fire?

And I upload something every weekend

I actually just finished the last chapters to this story.  It's a romantic comedy with fantasy elements in it.  It follows around the last living elf living in modern times.  It follows his life from a young child up until he was an adult.  He has to deal with many crazy situations because of who he is, but also the drama others bring into his life.  This story has elves (Him), magic, werewolves (My own version of them), vampires, romance, and lots lots of comedy.  There is also some dramatic scenes in there that might bring tears to your eyes.

Hi, I'm new here on Booksie and Fantasy Realm. I've written a number of chapters in my book called Queen's Assassin. I'm currently reviewing and editing them for a third time. Unfortunately I'm getting very little feedback from the writers group I belong to where I live - although I have tried to fix the one critique I got that my first chapter contained to much info and not enough drama. Anyway, have a read if you want - I look forward to checking out your stuff.

Although I take much inspiration from J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle Earth, this story doesn't have many dwarves and wizards. Actually, it plays out more like a Science Fiction novel with several influences from the Fantasy genre. However, I've tried to shape it more into its own original category, so that no one can simply state "Oh, it's just LOTR in space", because IT AIN'T.

If any of you would like to read it and state your thoughts of it, I would really appreciate it! ~ DipperDots

Re: What are you guys writing? Feel free to post here.

Hi there fantasy fans, Just thought I would drop a line about two fantasy stories I am working on. First, Malachi Stone, A Templar's tale: Bloodmoon. Is based during the Crusades, Malachi discovers a secret sect of Templar Werewolves and sets out to destroy them. It is a 3 part short, the last instalment should be ready in a couple of days.
Seraphim: Book three, the Satanic files. Shani Tarath is an Angelic being who protects the Earth from Demonic forces throughout history. Chapter 1 should be ready soon, why not check out Books 1+2, The Demon box, and Armageddon files.
I also have a number of other one off short fantasy stories with a difference, why not check them out?
So what would you recommend as a good read of your own.
