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.

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

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!

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

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!

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

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.

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

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.

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

Hi, I am a newbie here and I just posted the first half of the prologue for my book Sinful Pride. It is kind main stream fantasy with elves, dwarfs, demons and orcs but I am hoping people will be attracted to the protagonist and his struggle to overcome his nature. I would love some feedback for what I wrote so far.

Working on a short story called The Shadow Pack. It's a little glimpse into a much bigger universe that I have been developing over the past decade. Part 1 is up right now at:

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

Review for review!!!

Hi everyone. I realized overtime that one of the hardest things is to have consistent readers. 1000 people can read your chapter 1, but how many will stick around for chapter 42? Unfortunately, that chapter 42 will have stuff that depends on the previous ones. So you can't really ask a random to go straight to 42. It's a tough thing.

Anyway, because of that problem, I try to keep my chapters short. I would really appreciate if I can get some reviews on my work (pick whatever chapter you want)
https://www.booksie.com/524333-the-talystram-genesis

Without any explicit requests, I will in turn review your work =] I tend to be pretty good at editing other people's stuff

Thank you in advance <3

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

Hey guys! I'm currently working on my book, The Restitution. I'm still working on the latest chapter, but I've finished writing a piece of a later chapter for the book. So, since I feel bad for not posting anything for this book lately, I've decided to let you guys see this event I've written out. Think of it as a sneak peek! ~ DipperDots

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

I'm working on novel I called The Gift. I wanted to write something of the hero genre but I mixed realism with it to make it more interesting. The world I'm trying to build is that there are people with super powers and they use their powers for self gain.

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

I'm currently working on my new fantasy story https://www.booksie.com/544840-her-crown-of-harrows It was about a girl who was born of a curse no one ever wants to come in contact with. Her world is full of vampires, werewolves and other seemingly mystic creatures including humans too. This story came from my dream so some of it may be pretty similar to real life so it's mixed with reality more like a metaphor. I just started it today and hope for a good review! And in turn, I might read and review yours too. Thank you for this opportunity to share!

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

The Dwarven Kingdom split apart into four city-states centuries ago, and can only be brought back together by the one weilding the lost Holy Macguffin. Will our protagonist thwart the odds, and rise as the first Dwarven King since the split, uniting the dwarves as their ancient foes rise up to the east? How can he? He's only human. Oh, and there's a dragon chasing him through the woods.

To be serious, I'll just say that it was inspired by my Dungeons and Dragons character, and has grown into a novel-length conglomeration of short stories. I'm working them into a novel, next chapter should be up in a week or so.

A young soon to be chief of his tribe and his wife get an ominous prophesy on their way back from a disastrous meeting at a prince's castle.  He must allow his village to die in order to save the world later.  Can he do it or will he try to defy the fates?

The story mixes Eastern and Western folklore and Mythology to form a the basis for the many creatures that inhabit the setting.

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

Im trying to get back to Val'Rathii but I need some comments on that to figure out what Im doing wrong with the story. At the same time I don't want to use review chain to force someone to read it because while I personally love it its something enjoyable for a select few people. So for now Im writing a few reincarnation novels (or rather starting and cancelling them) until I find one that I feel the same way about as I did about Rathii. The similarities are OP MC and a problematic personality in the form of (Mild?) insanity or what have you.
Cancel that  so what if I get laughed at Im bringing Val'Rathii back to review chain, bring on the cringe!

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

Hi.
I'm new to Booksie and have just finished writing a novel and am looking for reviews (of course, I'm willing to review back). I have only uploaded chapter one of my book 'Starchild' to begin with, and would love any feedback/ comments/ criticism. Due to it being around 4000 words in length, I've abridged it for easier and more dramatic reading.
